How do you decide what to read next? When I finish a book and want to start a new one it takes ages for me to decide since there are too many books on my to-read list and it's wasting a lot of time
I'm down to 'Crime and Punishment' and 'Catch-22' and I spend an hour reading reviews to decide what I'm in the mood for and I'm still not any closer to a decision, why am I like this

I'm interested, might recommend starting with something reasonably short

That's probably smart. Crime and Punishment isnt that long, but perhaps King Lear or On The Road by Karuouac would be better? Whatever we can all agree to really, as long as it's not garbage formula fiction or something stupid like that

pledge 2 each month+1 cause I'm traveling around and intend resuming that pretty soon and will probably read way less while hitchhiking around (until idk when), but hopefuly I'll reach more than the goal as well

Twenty.

I have read three books so far, and I spend about 4 hours per day reading when I'm not working.

4 hours at least.

I've got 20 overall and they're most likely going to range between 100-300 pages each. I know I won't have much time for reading this year as I'm returning to university for a masters and I'm about to become an uncle, but my brother with the baby is unable to afford his own place at the moment. Plus, when I'm not reading I'm either on 4chan or, more productively, trying to further my own career.

20 books seems like a good attainable personal target, although I'd love to do 40 books a year again.

I'm a little like this. I have a stack on my desk I rifle through for what I fancy reading, and the book I tend to say I'm going to read next is never what I'm really in the mood for and I tend to only find out what I want to read by reading the first few pages of something and seeing if I fuccs wiv it.

i'm sorry anon but fuck right off with that weak shit

twin peaks, the sopranos, the wire, bojack horseman, the US office, master of none are all worthwhile and not some gay ass sci-fi poom poom bollocks

I'm the exact opposite. I'm halfway through a book and I already know the next few books I'll read and the order.

If you have a hard time picking one, try and read the first 5 pages of both, keep reading the one you liked better
