With the ever expanding TBR, it can be a struggle to pick what to read next if it is not a part of the series. There are a million methods to pick the next one according to the internet including randomizers and sites such as recommendmeabook.com.

Do you create a log of books to read or pick a random one if it piques your interest? How do you decide what to read next?

Just read the snippets from the book. If it interests you, you should tart it. To begin with, you should browse the categories you already like. If you are feeling adventurous, try a different category. Don't worry about it. Your interest intensifies once you explore more.

Normally the blurb helps to select the book of the specific category I would like to read. There are a couple of times when I have to leave the book in between because it did not interest me but as I said it happened a couple of times only....I do keep a log of what next to read so that I don't waste time in choosing when i have to start a new one.

For me, there has to be at least one mystery/thriller/police-procedural book a month. I try non-fiction in between. But over the years I have learnt I can't get enough of the genre I like the best. But then even in that genre there are more than a dozen books to pick from - recommended by friends with similar liking - so that becomes difficult to choose. So what I do is pick a book from the ones I already have on my device and go from there.

Blurb on the back >> Plot Summary >> Goodreads Reviews >> Amazon Reviews >> A couple of detailed reviews.

That's my process of vetting books for my reading list.

Book Genre -> Goodreads, Amazon, Google, realbookspy reviews -> pickup a book if I get it and start reading.

At times, it happens that, I pickup some particular topic in a book, then I make a mental note to explore more on that. I search for the topic, if I find something available, I pickup the book pertaining that particular topic.

I  have an affinity towards mythology and history so I  read the blurbs and pickup fiction that is set in a period which is of interest to me. I am a huge fan of Agatha christie, Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes so I re-read those when I get the time. Inbetween I try self-help/PMA (positive mental attitude) books

If the book is part of a series then that's what I am picking else I check which goodreads list the book is part of and then pick the next recommended one...I also have a large wish list so that also helps

Normally I stick to my favourite authors;but if a book has drawn a lot of attention by way of reviews and figuring in the best seller lists I would be inclined to pick it up  only to put it down if it does not sustain my interest beyond the first twenty pages.
