A Rainy OCD Thursday

Rather than blog this morning, I sat and reorganized my book reading list. This is only proof to the pudding of how OCD I truly am...I have several series that I want to read all at the same time, including the Song of Fire and Ice by George RR Martin, the Lord of the Rings trilogy by JRR Tolkien (what's with the double R's, I wonder??), Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, the Twilight saga, and Steig Larsson's Millenium trilogy. Then, I have a bookshelf of miscellaneous books that I've owned for years that I need to read...but right now only a handful really interest me. So...between Amazon and Goodreads, I ranked each series according to the ones which had received the highest readers' ratings, along with the other few odd ball books I want to toss in the mix, did my darnedest to turn a blind eye to more recommendations from both sites--aaahh!!! And then reordered my reading list for the year ahead. I'm shuffling between all five series and then the other individual books in an effort to not get burned out reading one author's work for too long--and also hoping this strain of madness will create a curiosity to get back to each individual series as I go along...I know, I totally overthink things, but a girl with a plan is a happy girl!! Even if that plan is subject to change due to availability and/or an unexpected appearance of some other great work of writing that must be read immediately!! (You just know it's gonna happen...)

So, book list reorganized, I should be finishing up The Hobbit either today or tomorrow, then will begin George RR Martin's Clash of Kings...I can't wait to get back into the Seven Kingdoms and find out what happens with the Baratheons, the Lannisters, and the Starks!

And as for our book swap group, a new, updated list of books will be going out tomorrow, so check your email!
