Does this ever happen to you?
You read about a book that you know you want to read. So, you stalk NetGalley and Edelweiss, find any and all contests to enter, put a hold on the library's pre-order or pre-order it from the bookstore.
Then, finally, finally, you get a copy in your hot little hands! It might be an ARC or a won copy or an egalley or it might be after the publication date. And you jump up and down and smile and sigh. Happiness!
Then it sits. And sits. And sits. You just don't pick it up and read it right away. Even though you KNOW you will love it and most of the reviews you read confirm that, you just don't start it.
Why is that? I have a book that I wanted so badly, finally got it after it was released, and there it sits. Is it that I am afraid if it ending? Or not measuring up (if it is a sequel)? Or is the hunt what it's all about? The rush of getting it is so great that the reading can't be nearly as great?
All I know is that this trait of mine (and maybe yours) drive me nuts!
How about you? What bumps something to the top of your TBR pile?
