I haven’t done a discussion post in a while, didn’t sign up for a challenge or anything this year, but I had something that I’ve been thinking about this week, and I thought maybe I could actually get some people to join in and help me decide. Even thought I’m not part of a challenge, I’m going to link up over on Feed Your Fiction Addiction.
So, sometimes there are books that I get sent by the publishers for reviews, and I’m talking about anthologies or poetry collections, etc. Some of these I can tell from the first few that I read how I feel about the book. And it’s not always a bad thing, sometimes I know that all the stories are going to be good, but I also know I have a lot of other review books I want to fit in. One of the problems I have with getting through anthologies is that since it is just short stories, when I am in between stories, there is not the pull to get back to a book like I’d have if I am in the middle of a story. Does that make sense?
In the past what I’ve done is go ahead and review the book on the tour date that I have scheduled, and maybe I’ll go back and finish reading if I have time. But my dilemma is, can I mark the book as actually read on Goodreads? I haven’t finished it. But I don’t want to put it on my DNF shelf, because those are usually the books I don’t want to finish. I can’t decide whether to count them as finished, or make a new shelf on Goodreads for this specific type of situation. It almost doesn’t feel fair to count them as being finished and towards my Goodreads goal.
So what do you do? Do you push your way through the book no matter what? If you are a DNFer like I am, because I have so many books to read I can’t waste time if something is not keeping my attention, how do you think I should handle it on my Goodreads? Help! I really need ideas!
Also, how do you like the button I made for this today? Thought it was cute!
