Can You Have Too Many Books?
Do you have too many books? I don’t think you can ever have too many books, maybe just not enough room to house and display them all. But, I do think you can sometimes become overwhelmed by so many wonderful books coming out at the same time that you can’t possible read them all and keep up.
At least that’s where I find myself at times, like now.
Add to that all the amazing authors (from both traditional and non-traditional publishing) that I’d like to introduce you to or the authors we know and love that have another fascinating release out I’d like to tell you about. Here I feel even more like I’m losing ground. And that doesn’t include the book tours, launch day/cover blitz or blogfest, not to mention the popup special feature/giveaways, book news in general and so much more.
I’m not complaining, mind you, and I know fully well that I can’t participate or host everything that’s going on in the book world (even in a single genre of it). It’s a joy to know there’s so many great books out there and so many, many more being added each day. I just wish there was a way to share more of these terrific titles with you. Sometimes I have to group several things together (like reviews) to be able to tell you about them, but I don’t like bombarding you with too much at one time and I like to give author’s own space when possible.
Okay, I know I could have used today’s post to tell you about a couple of amazing audio books I just finished. Those will come a little later in the month. But, let’s face it – it’s a holiday here in the U.S. and I wasn’t sure if Thoughts would have that much traffic. Besides, I don’t get to do much rambling anymore and this seemed like a good day for it.
I am so very thankful to all the authors and publishers who provide me with such remarkable stories to read and listened to. I never want y’all to think otherwise. I’m also equally thankful to y’all for supporting Thoughts and I’m always delighted to hear your thoughts on how I can better provide book-related (or any) information to you.
While I may feel overwhelmed at times, I’ll keep trying to tell you about as many of the new books by favorite authors and new authors and their books as I can. Please always feel free to share any new books and/or authors you know about in the comments. I wish this blog template had the section for allowing the recent blog post link of those commenting like other templates I’ve seen. Maybe I need to change templates. Any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you’re having a wonderful day whether you’re celebrating the holiday or not.
Now tell us what your TBR stack looks like – a couple of books, a stack higher than your head or so many books you don’t even want to begin to count? Do you collect books or do you give them away after reading them? If you have a large selection of books, how do you manage to store them all?
Hi, I'm Mason Canyon and I love reading and that is why I do reviews. I post them here, as well as several other sites such as Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. If you are an author who would like for me to review your book or you would like to guest blog here, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org These reviews are done for the love of a good book, not for monetary rewards.
