There comes a time in every booklover’s life…

There comes a time in every booklover’s life when you acknowledge the cold hard truth…. you will never be able to read all the books that you’d like to.

Kind of a depressing thought at first BUT I’m usually pretty good at finding a silver lining on life’s clouds, so here it is:

We are spoiled for choice when selecting our next book to read!

For me, the next best thing to reading books is browsing books, and I do at least manage to find some time each and every evening for that.

So I have started selecting a book each day that I’d like to read (if I had the time) and recording that in a tweet. Here’s an example:

While the above example is a new release that caught my eye, it doesn’t have to be something new. It could be any book, even a classic, that took my fancy that day. I have quite varied tastes in reading so it could get interesting.

For those who don’t follow me on twitter, each week I will publish a list of the books featured in my Daily Book Wishlist tweets here on Booklover Book Reviews also.

A book being featured on this list doesn’t necessarily translate to it being a great read – I’m pretty good at selecting books, but realistically we all pick a stinker once in a while. So if you think any of my Daily Book Wishlist selections are ill-advised, please let me know!

    I’ve only read the Ridgway – it’s good. It doesn’t take the time travelling particularly far and it could have been better, but it’s pretty fun as it is.

      Good to know Charlie as it was the time travelling element that initially caught my eye, but putting that aside it still sounds like a great chunky read filled with lots of different threads and colourful detail.
