Spring Cleaning Book Tag

It’s Thursday and it is Spring so what better time than to do a Spring Cleaning Book Tag. I originally did this tag three years ago, but I thought it would be fun to do again and see how my answers have changed. You can see my original post here.

This tag was created by Amanda @Between the shelves!

  • Tag as many friends as you want!
  • Have fun!

1. Getting started: A book series you’ve been meaning to read

Ever since I read Babel, I have been thinking about reading more by this author. This book has been on my TBR since 2018, so I think it is high time I get around to it. Maybe this summer as it is a long one and I will have the time then.

2. Cleaning/organizing the closet: The best way to organize books

This answer still stands, although I have probably done a couple of purges since the last post. I hope to do some organizing sometime soon, maybe, probably not.

So you would think that being a librarian my book shelves would be organized!. But alas, I can not say that is true. Now this is not what it looks like, but there is no rhyme or reason to my organization. About the only thing I can say is that series are together, and even some authors are together, but not all.

3. Getting rid of unnecessary things: book/series you no longer need

I tend to purge books quite regularly, but what I need to focus on soon is my GoodReads Want to read list. It is becoming unmanageable again and I haven’t really been using it to find books I am interested in reading. Lately I have just been wandering around the shelves in the library and grabbing whatever interests me. I have mostly been using GoodReads to help me remember series that I haven’t finished or new books by favorite authors coming out.

4. Get some air: your favorite light-hearted read

When I think of lighthearted, I of course go to what makes me smile and laugh the whole time I am reading it. So when I looked back on what I have been reading lately nothing seemed to jump out at me, which probably says something about me and my state of mind right now. Any how, if you are looking for a good laugh I cannot recommend this series enough. Finlay and her gang always make me laugh.

5. Clean out the kitchen cupboards: Favorite food-themed read

I still don’t tend to pick up books that have a food theme, but this little middle grade gem was the last one I read and enjoyed.

6. Dust the shelves: What’s the fifth book on your bookshelf

I have several bookcases to choose from, and then of course there are the books stacked on top of my several bookcases. So this is the book that won!

7. Wishing for the end: a 2023 release you’re really excited about

So so many to choose from, but if we’re talking about most excited it would have to be these four.

8. Long but satisfying: The longest book series you’ve read

Terry Pratchett’s Disc-World series still takes the top notch at 41 books, but I wanted to see who would be in second place. The only long series I could think of was the Dresden Files coming in at a total of 17 books with at least one more to come. Plus there are several short stories and novellas and I think I have read all of them as well. There are also many graphic novels, but I haven’t done those. GN’s just don’t work for me.

That was a lot of fun. I hope you enjoyed it too. Consider yourself tagged if you want to join in!
