BTT: Bookless (May 17, 2007)

This week's question

It happens even to the best readers from time to time… you close the cover on the book you’re reading and discover, to your horror, that there’s nothing else to read. Either there’s nothing in the house, or nothing you’re in the mood for. Just, nothing that “clicks.” What do you do?? How do you get the reading wheels turning again?
It happens! But not because I'm short of books. I have TBRs staring back at me, and I can't quite decide what to read. My mood usually determines the reading material. To combat that, I simply pick up a book and start reading. I try to tie back with what I'm trying to achieve at the moment. For example, I wanted to improve on my thinking and so I pick up a book on that topic. I stock up and have various topics on standby... With this, I'm always 'equipped'.

I'm a little bit late this time round, but still, Happy BTT, everyone!

Book Quote:

"A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum -- of both books and money! But especially books, for books represent infinitely more than money. A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold." — Henry Miller
