I haven't really been in the mood for any certain type of book lately, so I decided to make myself a TBR jar. That way, I can cut down my TBR list a little faster.
I had a lot of fun making my jar, and Jensen sure did have fun watching me from below.
So here is my finished jar. I just used a plain Mason jar and some bright and colorful paper. I am very happy with the way it turned out. I have just over 200 books in here..so yes, it'll take me quite a while to get through. And I'm sure I will be adding more as time goes on.
I am planning to review every single book I pull out of this jar. Wish me luck.
Do you have a TBR jar? Or do you have a certain method of choosing your next book to read. Let me know!
About three things I was absolutely positive. First, books and college made me broke. Second, there was a part of books -- and I didn't know how potent that part might be -- that coaxed me to read them. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with books (and food).
"And so the human fell in love with a book..."
"What a stupid book."
"What a sick, masochistic human."
Books are peaceful, life is harder.
Me to a book, "You are my life now."
Surely it was a good way to die, in a place surrounded by my books, surrounded by the stories I loved.
Book to me: "What if I'm not a good book, what if I'm a shitty one?"
Me in reply: "You're not. But I can see that it's just to keep people away from you. It's a cover."
Rose's Notes: I love this woman so much.

City of Glass, was far the best book serie The Mortal Instruments . And I think the history could have end there. And maybe it should. I haven't read the next book, but I honestly don’t think that more three books are necessary, and maybe the author it's forcing this to be more than it is, I don’t know.
I realy don't know what to expect of the next book. I don't see how the history can keep going.
But i think that deserve a try. So i'm gonna try.

I'm sure all these goodreads posts are of no use to existing booklikes members. And I've seen a few postings from them wondering about all these new followers (please don't blames us -- signing up for a booklikes account makes us initially follow 25 members that booklikes assigns us. We'll eventualy sort it out to only follow others with similar reading tastes or whose posts we enjoy).
Please don't think we all came over here to post offensive, threatening material. Allegations of bullying, rape threats, etc. sure do make good headlines. And good headlines go viral.
Some of us never wrote reviews on goodreads. Or had any shelf names worse than "Western" "Memoir" etc.
We already love booklikes for daily update posts and quick response to comments and email. It's incredibly soothing compared to our experiences with goodreads.
We are booklovers. Avid booklovers. We're the ones who worked tirelessly making goodreads immense database and membership a takeover target for amazon. Now that amazon has our data, they don't want us. Just to market our data to customers buying new kindles and amazon fire. They killed Shelfari who used to be the kindle integrated book site and now are replacing Shelfari with goodreads.
Some of us are here just to protect our book catalogs, as in we seriously have no idea what will or won't be deleted at goodreads. Likely very quiet members at that.
City of Glass.
I just love Magnus, he is so funny!
