Occasionally, the 'heir and a spare' policy doesn't work because I don't quite keep on top of things, and I end up staring down the barrel of one of two 'unacceptable' scenarios: a) drowning in library books (which can lead to stress WRT return dates); or b) the 'spare' hasn't arrived in time (and thus I have nothing to read). The latter occurred last night. I started reading Shadow Kiss (Richelle Mead) and realized after approximately 10 pages that I just didn't want to continue. Result: panic! What do I read? (And, yes, before you ask, I have keeper books I could pick up, but I have learnt that there picking up a keeper may result in madness...reading dribs and drabs of various books but not one whole book. Does that happen to anyone else out of interest?)
And then it struck me. *slow grin* I have an iPhone. And on that iPhone are books....books I've bought but haven't read yet. So then it became fun again. Do I read Keeping Caught Running (Madeline Urban & Abigail Roux)? Promise Keeping Rock (Amy Lane)? Shades of Gr
So, do you adopt the 'heir and a spare' policy, or do you have an entirely different policy that you would be willing to share?
