Hi friends! I’m really, really excited because I THINK I’ve found the perfect solution to two current problems I have!
i suck at audiobook reading (listening?)
I usually end up staring at the wall. But I hate staring at the wall, so I try to do something else and then I start daydreaming and singing to myself and OOPS before you know it half the characters have departed the literary planet and the funerals happened an hour ago. Not great.
i am really bad at backlist reading.
I mean, I’m bad at all reading. But I forget that I ever wanted to read something until I go to mark it as to-read on Goodreads and um…it’s already marked. It’s embarrassing, to be perfectly honest with you.
so, i believe that i’ve found a solution!
I’ve decided to make good use of my family’s Scribd account, start backwards on my Goodreads TBR, and listen to the earliest on my want-to-read shelf book that’s available on Scribd*. So without further ado, let us judge the first choice! Drum roll please!
*if you don’t know what scribd is, it’s $10 a month and you get access to a ton of audiobooks and ebooks. if anyone is interested, i can definitely make a post about it in the future!
TBR Addition Date: October 15, 2017
The oldest book is one of the rare ones I own physically, so I want to read it like that. The next oldest book added…technically hasn’t come out yet. And Scribd didn’t have the third oldest book, so here we are! I have no idea what this is about! I remember hearing Regan @ Peruse Project talk about this a lot because it’s fantasy, so I’m lowkey kinda excited about this?! I do like fantasy. It’s about 11 years old, so we’ll see how it stands up to the test of time.
That’s it! What do you think of this? Have you read Finnikin of the Rock?
