How to Choose the Next Book to Read

It has always been a challenge finishing a book.  But what’s harder is to search for the next book to read and deciding what book to read. There will always be a sense of silence once you finish one and it would take a long time for you to recover especially if the previous one you have read is particularly powerful. When this phase is gone, and decided to look for the next artwork to read and enjoy, the old-age question is then asked: what is the next book to read?

How to Choose the Next Book to Read

Sometimes, finding a book to read after reading one is just like finding yourself a date. Sometimes, it feels like you are extremely insane over a particular title and you can’t just relax yourself unless you feel the texture of the book in your hands and smell the odor of each of its pages.


Here are a few guides to help you decide what book to read next:

  1. The double-booking

Sometimes, you can’t just have enough books. Thus, you decide to read two, three and more often, four books at a time, reading a few chapters from the first book and a few pages of the other. The good thing about this method is that, you are able to decide the best book you will have to read for the next couple of days when you contrast it with other books. Once you scratch the other books off from your list, then you will have that one decision in your life that would change you forever. Just like finding a true love!

  1. The Few Lines Test

This is somehow similar to the first method, however, the only thing different is that, you will have to read a few lines of the first book and read as well few lines from the other books and then decide what the best book suits your taste the most. You can’t just save time, but you also save yourself from exerting too much effort. However, you just have to be decisive!

  1. The Good Books

This method is a process in which to seek a book that is not just a good book in itself but also a good book for the soul. These kinds of books are those that are required of you to read back in high school but you never really bothered reading, or that book in philosophy book that you bought due to book addiction and you never really needed. Try to read them the next time you need something to read.

  1. The ‘Bad’ Books

This is the exact opposite of the previous method. These kinds of books in the ‘bad’ books are not entirely bad, but these books are the kind of books that you never really usually read. Erotica, mysteries, romances, whatever books that aren’t your jam- maybe it’s high time for you to read them now. This method don’t just let you read the books that you don’t usually read but also it well let you experience a whole new world outside of your box. Thus, it could be fun and exciting!
