May 15, 2015 Memes 28

BMR,Friday's MemeSince there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

featurefollowFeature and Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.

How do you organize your books? Either at home on your bookshelves or on your reading-device, or on your bookish platform like Goodreads, Leafmarks or Booklikes. – Suggested byUnconventional Book Views

I am so unorganized it’s crazy!! I just started trying to make heads or tells of all the books I have and found out I have way to many unread books that I need to tackle!

bookshelfHere is a picture of my TBR shelf, yes  the books I haven’t read has their own shelf and it’s over flowing and that isn’t all of them. I still have a tub full and some boxes! All this cleaning out of  books has got me thinking though, that I need to quit taking on review books and read some of my own!

On my ereader, I haven’t even tackled that yet but I would like to put them in some type of order just don’t know what. Maybe I will get some ideas off of the meme! 🙂

book beginnings memeBook Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.

Circling-the-runway

Private Investigator Jacob Diamond and San Francisco Detective Sergeant Roxton Johnson are famous for not getting along. Cats and dogs. Oil and water. Liston and Ali. Jake and Rocky.

When an assistant district attorney is murdered in his high-rise apartment building, and Johnson suspects his lieutenant may have something to do with it, he can think of no one else to turn to for help—no one he can trust—except Jake Diamond.

If the mismatched duo can avoid stepping on each other’s toes long enough—they may be able to stop circling the runway and land on the villain’s doorstep. Lieutenant Laura Lopez, Detective Ray Boyle, Joey Clams, Vinnie Strings and Darlene Roman are all back in the first new Jake Diamond escapade since Counting to Infinity.

This is one that I just started reading and was suppose to have read before now..ugh. So behind. It’s driving me crazy cause it’s book 4 in a series and I didn’t realize that when I said I would read it so now it’s driving me crazy. Not cause it’s confusing but just my book OCD..I keep thinking about how it’s not book one..lol.

James Bingham stood at the curb in front of the high-rise residence, talking with the taxi driver who had dropped off the occupant of apartment 3501 a few minutes earlier.

Not a grabber, but a few paragraphs down  was a grabber..LOL 🙂

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday  Teaser but  you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.

“Where is Johnson?”

“I had to send him back to Vallejo Street. So. Tell me everything you know.”

“Not much o tell. They found the body here.” Altman began, pointing down to the floor just inside the bedroom. Lopez noticed the bloodstains on the carpet. “We moved him to the bed to clear the doorway. On gunshot wound to the back of the head. Looks like a thirty-eight caliber, but I wouldn’t swear to it until I pull the slug out. I’m guessing eight to twelve hours ago from time of death, but again I need to run test before I sign off on it.”

Well seem some poor soul as met his maker…I wonder who it is since I haven’t read this far in. 🙂

book blogger hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.  Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.

If you see a book you like but see it is 400 or 500+ pages, will you still read it?

 

Well, I am not a huge fan of large books (I was when I was younger but not anymore), so I have to really really want to read it. Some times I look at the book size and go ah man, but still get it. LOL I still want to read Under the Dome by Stephen King but haven’t because of the 1000+ pages..now that is intimidating! 🙂

      It’s an addiction, we just can’t help but get more and more books. 🙂 Even when we have a ton at home.

    • Stormi

      I actually have that shelf and then another one for review books..ugh..lol.

    That’s exactly what I’m trying to do. Lately I’ve been going back and reading more of my books that I have at home. Anyway, interesting 56, thanks for sharing.

      Hi Nadene, it might be hard on the TBR pile since this is book four and if you like me and it drives you crazy to start in the middle and not at the beginning you would need to add four books instead of one. 🙂

    You have only a single shelf for unread print books? I have an entire bookcase! Heh, I just might a have a hoarding problem. 😀 As for my ebooks, I have an insanely huge shelf on goodreads, my to-be-read shelf, for all of my unread ebooks. Other than that, no organization. 😀

    Hmm, wonder who died and why. I hope it’s a good story!

      Bea, that is a whole bookshelf not just one shelf and it’s double stacked in places…lol. 🙂 I have a hoarding problem too because I have a large pink tub that is full as well. 🙂

    I tend to stay away from long books. I try to organize my books – both print and Kindle books but I’m very unsuccessful. LOL

      If I mixed them with my read books I might forget I haven’t read them. 🙂

    I love police procedurals and mysteries…and stories set in SF.

    Thanks for sharing…and I once had a shelf just for my unread books. Before that, they were stacked on the bedroom floor.

    I started one of my blogs to document my journey (Curl up and Read), and now I have just a few unread print books atop a bookcase. (I started the blog in 2009).

    My e-reader, of course, is another story!

    Hang in there….and thanks for visiting my blog.

    I’m in the same position as yourself. I think 90%+ of my books are TBR and what’s worse is I continue to purchase more and borrow from the library when I’ve got 5 shelves, with 2 rows in each shelf of books I’m yet to read! Crazy!!!!

    I probably wouldn’t stress about organising your ebook reader, that’s what the search function is for 😀

    Lastly, it does get intimidating, large books, not to mention painful if you plan to read it elsewhere but home, so I’d recommend getting these types of books on your ebook reader so you don’t get constantly reminded on the size, and more concentrated on the content as you start to read through it.

    I have a tbr bookcase that I haven’t really touched since I got my first Kindle. However every time I go to a used bookstore I add to the bookcase. My tbr on my Kindle is out of contro and I wish I knew how you go about organizing a Kindle-do you know how to move stuff around? The reason I have not read Outlander is because it’s over 1000 pages-so I will just watch it on TV! Used to read books that big-just can’t do it anymore.
