May Goals Organize

Got Goals Bloghop
https://gotgoalsbloghop.blogspot.com



I fell so far behind that I didn’t even publish my goal post at the end of April. And this one is a day late. I also have my ORGANIZE post for Blog All About It smack in the middle of this. So break out the potato, because this is gonna be long.

What I loved most about March’s blog all about it challenge was the number of people who declared a love for the scent of old books.

I found a cool reading bingo challenge in April:
Tsundoku Bingo Spring 2018

    Spreadsheet Organizing my ebook TBR by page length

    I’m not even 1/3 of the way through the ebooks. But this is what the spreadsheet looks like. I wish there were a faster way to make this. Actually, I wish I didn’t have to organize this myself, because it seems like someone at Amazon would be able to write a code that books could be searched by page length (the site IS where I go to get the information) and /or by genre (again, guess where I get the info…). And for the few ebooks I have that aren’t available on Amazon, I surf over to Goodreads (which, I’m pretty sure, Amazon owns or partnered with).

    So this, in theory, could exist elsewhere, but doesn’t. I asked about it, and they suggest searching by file size. Let me tell you why that’s unwise: A children’s picture book has a huge file size, because of the pictures. Certain fonts have a higher file size (Twilight — Edward’s handwriting). If the author adds a map, or an image with the chapter number, or anything along those lines, it alters the file size. #TrustMeIAmAnAuthor

    Anyway, that’s my current organizing project. Here’s a screeenshot of part of it:

    On a side note, as long as I’m going mention ways Amazon could improve, my cousin-in-law has a whole rant going on. If you’re a reader or a writer, this is important to you:

    2. I’m not a great organiser either, I’m always juggling about fiv e to-do lists in my head instead of actually writing them down somewhere! Best of luck with your June goals, it looks like you’ve got a lot done the last couple of months too.

    3. You are so fantastically organized! I”d like to have my days organized as well let alone having those long range plans all in place. Nice job!

    4. You have been busy! I don’t even know how you managed to fit so many blog comments and read so many books in one month! I do good to get one book read a month. And as hard as I try to comment, I certainly have never managed 300+ in one month! (Was that like 10 a day in April?) I wish you the best of luck on your June goals. May you accomplish even more than you have on your list!
