    Default Do you organize what you read?

    I have a problem of buying or downloading anything that seems interesting that I end up reading randomly. Lots of it just sits on my shelf or hard drive only to get rediscovered months later.

    Do you read in a more organized or methodical way? Do you make reading lists?

    I don't, reading for pleasure shouldn't be something you feel forced to do on a schedule, you should just read shit you actually want to read, even if it comes and goes or you never finish 40% of what you start.

    What about for non-fiction stuff—do y'all have a method?

    I don't but I need a method. There are lots of stuff I want to read, but it is not all that fun. So I also need to force myself to read.

    Best way is probably to decide on one book and then read it and stick with it until it's finished.
    A true sense-perception certainly exists, but it always looks as though objects were not so much forcing their way into the subject in their own right as that the subject were seeing things quite differently, or saw quite other things than the rest of mankind. As a matter of fact, the subject perceives the same things as everybody else, only, he never stops at the purely objective effect, but concerns himself with the subjective perception released by the objective stimulus.

    I have a goodreads list but I forget about the books on it most of the time. Basically I’m going for what I’m in the mood for. If I’m looking for a book I’ll usually find my favorite reviewers on goodreads and look at books they’ve reviewed lately, or if I’m in the mood for a particular genre I’ll google something like best books to read around October, best books in horror 2020. Then I’ll look online on my Library website and if they don’t have it I’ll see if they can put on a hold from another library. If they don’t and I really want to read it, I’ll download the ebook from amazon. I only buy classics or books I really really like anymore. I don’t see the point in buying something I’m going to probably only read once, and if I do like it enough, I’ll buy it. I also have Libby on my phone and can rent audiobooks and ebooks from my library off that, been doing that a lot lately. But I don’t spontaneously pick up books to buy anymore, used to more when I was younger. I rarely don’t finish books I start, it drives me nuts lol even if I don’t like it
