Stick To The List!

5 years ago

It was probably bound to happen sooner or later. 

The other night I went online to the North Carolina Digital Library to see what I could find to download onto the nook.  I had my trusty Endless TBR list pulled up on GoodReads and I was ready to go.  The frustrating thing about the digital library is trying to find something you want to read which is A) available on the NCDL and B) doesn't have a mile long wait list.

One of the books I found myself looking for was The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman.  Mile long wait list.  But as I searched her name, I saw a few other books that looked interesting.  I selected and downloaded The Third Angel.  Why not?

I'll tell you why not!  As I started reading the book that night, it kept nagging at me.  I felt like I knew this story.  It was very familiar.  Some parts more than others.  Something wasn't right here...

The next morning I pulled up GoodReads again and searched The Third Angel.  Sure enough!  Suspicion confirmed!!  I had read this book back in 2009!  Good grief!  Is this what it's come to?  I've read so many books in my life, I can't remember what I have read and what I haven't?  (sigh) 

This is why I need the TBR pile/list!  Just to keep track of what I want to read and not get confused.  To avoid reading the same books over and over. 

From now on - I'll stick to the list!
