Nest Book Club FAQ

How do you find time to read?

The most common answer you'll get to this question is that reading is a priority.  When you want to do something, you make time for it and reading is no different.  Some suggestions for making reading a priority:

  • Listen to audiobooks while cleaning, cooking, driving, exercising, etc.
  • Read during your lunch break if you work
  • Go to bed earlier and read before you go to sleep or get up earlier and read before the day starts
  • Keep a book with you to read while waiting in line or at appointments
  • Download a nook, kindle or other e-reader app to your phone and read when you have free moments
  • If you're a new mom, read while nursing or giving a bottle (this is easier with an e-reader)
  • If you take public transportation, read during your commute
  • Read while drying your hair  
  • Watch less tv and spend less time online

 

Should I keep reading this book/Does this book get better?

Each person will answer this differently, but it's ultimately up to the individual who is reading the book.  If you've given the book a good try and aren't enjoying it, go ahead and put it aside.  You can always come back to it later.  Different readers will enjoy different books.  Some of us give a book 50, 100, or 150 pages; others give up when the book becomes a chore to read.  Other readers can't tell you what you'll enjoy or if a book will get better for it, so use your own judgment and don't feel guilty for giving up something that isn't working for you.

 

Where do you get your books?

  • The library 
  • Major chains (Books-A-Million, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble)
  • Library sales (check your public library for dates)
  • Used book stores (check your local yellow pages)
  • Garage sales or thrift stores
  • Online discount stores (Abebooks, Half.com, alibris)
  • Local independant bookstores (Use Indie Bookstore Finder to find one near you) 
  • Online swap sites (Paperback Swap, Bookmooch) 
  • E-books (Amazon for Kindle, Barnes and Noble for Nook, or through other indie sites - many are available free on Kindle and Nook)
  • Project Gutenburg (free books in public domain)
  • Target, Walmart, grocery stores
