Weekly Geeks - What's the Plan?

Here's this week's Geek topic:

It's hard to believe we're approaching the last quarter of 2009. Soon those of us in the northern hemisphere will be curled up in front of the fire (or solar heater) with our favorite wintry reads, and those in the southern will be off to the beaches with their summer books.

Do you have a plan of what you're going to read the rest of the year? Have you had a master plan all along? If so, have you stuck to it? What helps you to decide what you're going to read next? Challenges? Book groups? Or do you have the luxury of closing your eyes and picking any book off your shelf?

I know some of you have spreadsheets and other devices to help you keep track of your books and challenges. (I even succumbed to using a spreadsheet this year after teasing my friends relentlessly about theirs.) If you have online spreadsheets, such as Google, can you give us a peek at them with a link or a screen shot?


The plan is, I have no plan. I read what I want in with no particular rhyme or reason in mind. I hope to finish the 100+ challenge hosted by J. Kaye (I'm about 40 pages away from finishing book #65) but that's about it.

I wish I could be as free spirited as you are about choosing books. Seems like the best way to go about it.

Good post Kristen. Do you have lists of books to look for, or haven't you fallen into that trap yet?

I share your no plan. Who knows what mood I'll be in when it's time to pick up the next book :)

I don't really plan either.
Happy Weekly Geeks :)

Sounds good ot me. I've got no plan either. Just read what I want and when I want it.
