Agnieszka T. (enga) | 727 comments How do you choose books? How your decission making process looks like, what are the reasons? I'm just curious after reading your whole list :)


message 22: by Charity (new)

Charity (charityross) Tough to say. Usually, I just go where my mood takes me. However, this summer I'm going to be reading a bunch of books that relate to India/Indians since I've been rather obsessed with that culture lately.

For the most part, I like to dabble in a little bit of everything and see where it leads.


message 23: by Agnieszka T. (new)

Agnieszka T. (enga) | 727 comments I asked because you have pretty interesting list of books :) And quite some of so called classics. Enjoy your reading :)

Cardiacnursee | 2 comments Wow Charity!! I am SO impressed with how much reading you have accomplished already this past year, with such versatile subjects. Just curious, how are you able to read so quickly? Are you working? I LOVE to read, but just cannot find the time to finish a book in a day or so, if I sleep (like I'm supposed to). haha :0) Thanks for sharing your books and your progress! That is AWESOME!! Keep up the good work... Happy Reading to you...


message 34: by Charity (new)

Charity (charityross) Oh, I just try to read whenever I can. I also think that the more you enjoy a book, the faster you are able to read it. Of course, I don't read nearly as fast as many of the other members in this group. They are reading machines!
