I have been watching too much TV lately and have not been reading at all, which is bad. It is just that I can't seem to get myself into a book. And I find it harder and harder to find my next read.
I have been watching Bones, Haven, Criminal Minds and Orange is the New Black. Oh dear...
I blogged before about watching TV versus reading and asked if reading were a waste of time. That was when I felt I was actually reading too much. I decided then that both is good, if done moderately.
But now? I am getting too much TV and I need to get back to reading.
But the challenge is first to get my next read. I have not found a good tool for that yet. I don't go to the bookstore that often anymore, if at all. So book browsing is out. I use sites like Amazon, Kobobooks and especially Goodreads to recommend me books. It is hard if not impossible to book browse in a website.
Sites like YourNextRead.com, WhatShouldIReadNext.com are just ok. OpeningtheBook.com is interesting as it recommends books to you based in your preference and mood.
If you have another other good tools or ways to find your next read, do let me know.
