My book jar


In a recent book bloggers chat (#bookbloggers, Tuesdays 7-8pm), Sarah told me about her book jar. I really struggle trying to decide which book to read next, so this seemed like a really fun way to tackle my to-read pile.
The idea is to put each book name on a piece of paper, which you then fold up and put in the jar. When it comes time to read a new book, just choose a piece of paper at random and surprise! The decision is made for you.

My bunny jar originally had other plans but, when they didn't pan out, I realised it was the perfect size for my book jar. Although it should really live in my bedroom, where I tend to read, it just looks too cute in my office!

If you're a big reader like me, I really recommend a book jar as a fun, decision-free way to choose your next read.

  2. This is a fabulous idea! I'm such a bookworm and never seem to stop reading, sometimes multiple books at once (like alternate days not opening both at the same time haha!). This seems like such a lovely little idea! ^__^

    Also, cuuuute bunny jar!

  4. such a brill idea to decide what to read - it often totally stumps me what to go for next. I have a jar filled with different crafts and recipes to try - all colour coded because I'm OCD. I'll have to assign a colour for books now.

  7. This is such a great idea! I really struggle to choose which book to read, then end up reading a few pages of each, and then buy some more instead - I'm hoping this Autumn I'll get better at hibernating and reading one book at a time...perhaps this idea will help!

  8. This is such a great idea! I've got so many books to read but I've not been able to get in to anything these last few weeks. I might have to try this!

  9. That jar is ridiculously cute, and I LOVE this idea! I may have to steal it... been trying to get back into reading and have a list as long as my arm with different suggestions, don't know where to start :/

  11. Smart! I'm definitely one to avoid making the decision of picking from a list. This is great!

  12. I started one because of that chat, currently ignoring it as I know what I want to read next, but it's perfect for those times when you just can't choose!
