Figuring out what to read next is pretty simple for me.
The Toronto Public Library allows patrons to place holds on up to 30 ebooks at a time.
Their hold limit used to be capped at 20, but I wrote them a friendly email and they soon changed that policy. This might be a story future generations tell about me to explain what Aunt Lydia was like. Ha!
I don’t always digitally queue up for that many books, but I almost always have holds placed on at least a dozen or two of them.
Some books are more popular than others, especially if they’re new releases, and therefore have much longer waitlists. I might wait a few days for one title but a few months or longer for something highly anticipated that just came out.
I keep track of roughly when books should arrive and request new ones to fill the holes when I notice that a future month looks like it won’t have a lot of arriving ebooks for me. Let’s just say that my to-read list is a long one.
This system has been especially helpful this year when socializing in person and going to my favourite places hasn’t always been advisable or even possible.
What I read depends on which books have arrived lately. Everything I request is something I’m looking forward to reading, so their order of arrival doesn’t matter too much in most cases.
Occasionally, I buy ebooks as well. There are some authors and stories that I’m too excited to possibly wait months for!
