Yakkety Yak – You Know Your Book Reader Mojo is Strong When…

Ever just have a streak of good fortune as a Reader?  You know what I mean, right?

You know your book reader mojo is strong when…

  1.  You learn about a deal on Kindle Unlimited for the two or three months when you timed it to have the least amount of new releases, review ARCs, and other real life commitments.
  2. A secondary character in the book you just read and loved them so much becomes the next hero/heroine in the series.
  3. A book you want to read more than anything is up for review at Net Galley or Edelweiss and you get selected to review the ARC.  
  4. And, let’s up the ante from #4 and say you wanted a finished copy so badly, but would settle for an ARC and the publisher/author mails it unsolicited to your doorstep.
  5. Something about a book you’ve never heard of catches your eye, you take a chance, and you’ve just read your new favorite book of the year- and it has friends, on the author’s backlist and they are abso-fab, too.
  6.  You overbooked your review commitments because you needed all the books and a few turn out to be novella-length and you get some unexpected reading time.
  7. You made the decision to get the book in a specific format and it was a good call b/c it was a much better experience with or without the audio.
  8. A book you want to read soon goes on sale or free right when you’re thinking about it.
  9. You spot a review for a book you’re contemplating and the reviewer/s point out an element that would have absolutely ruined your reading experience so you can duck your own bad book/reader match up and skip it.
  10. You were gifted or won a gift card right when your book budget ran out.

Haha!  Yes, these have all really happened to me.  See? I’m blessed. Had any fab book reader mojo of your own?  Do Tell!

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

I don’t know about mojo but the email from Amazon this week Buy 60.00 worth of books get $40.00 free sure was fun. I bought things I’d wanted and swore I would never pay full price for. Plus I have some books I want coming soon so I’m saving the 40.00 to get those.

You found some that fit me perfectly, and that meme at the end says it all. Definitely worth stealing and sharing.
Hugs and Happy Sunday , Shari.(lol)

I think that I have had most of these things happen at least once. It is great to be a reader/reviewer 🙂
