I give in to my tendency to procrastinate. I've got my big pile of stuff I should read. I'll occasionally pick up something that catches my eye instead, and am usually glad that I did. Although I exceeded my (modest) 2013 reading target, about 1/3 were titles I picked up on impulse and started immediately, putting them ahead of my carefully prioritized to-read list for no good reason. This sort of "impulse buy" keeps my momentum going during those uninspired gaps.

Well, haven't posted here for a while because, ahem, in the meantime I read a book I clicked on a wrong link that took me to book promo istead a blog post, it caught my attention, tried free sample and liked it, so...
Perhaps it is/was because I don't fancy many things on offer these days. Before that book (Street cat named Bob by James Bowen btw) I did try one of few remaining Poirots but again, meh.
It is dificult to find a good, well written book these days, for me at least. I don't hoard, I fish for the next read when I finish a book. And English books are my second choice.

The one thing you must obviously do is stick to Calibre's choice, or it's useless.
The only exceptions I make are:
- If Calibre chooses a book in the middle of a series, I pick either the first one, or the next one that I didn't read yet.
- If Calibre picks a Delphi Classic, I choose one of the books in that omnibus.
(Hm... sometimes I do cheat. If I really don't want to read a certain genre right now, I exclude it from the selection before doing the random pick )
