During the weekend Winter Bloggiesta, I planned to make my Reading Jar finally. And it turned out great! The idea originally came from a post over at The Book Vixen and I knew that I had to make a version of it for myself. I kept the concept the same, but changed up what I wrote on the slips of paper.
Instead of listing the titles of the books on my shelf or in my TBR (to be read pile), I wrote out fun, quirky ideas of books to read: a book with a red cover, a book with a one-word title, a book by fave author Kathy Reichs, a book from the library, a book with title starting with M, etc. I did the whole alphabet, the rainbow of covers, fave authors, genres and so on. I'm not sure how many different slips are in the jar, but it's full. It's mini mason jar, so I'm sure I could have made an even bigger one with many more ideas, but this one suits me fine. I liked this idea as I'm a mood reader and don't like to be tied down to just one specific book - this was I get to pick something that fits the idea from the jar.
I know a few readers were mentioning making their own when they saw it on my Bloggiesta list, I'd love to see how yours turned out. Or if you like this idea, share yours with myself and Brianna at The Book Vixen (since it was her idea to begin with).
