Hard To Know Which Books - November 13th 2015, 02:05 PM

I am having a rather hard time figuring out what to read or where to start. I did put about 4 books on hold where once they are ready at my local library I can go pick them up rather trying to find books.

I am going to read The Walking Dead series by Kirkman, Robert. I am hopeful I will get into it but I am "testing the waters" I do enjoy watching the show and I know it would be a lot different from the show to books.

I also placed on hold crafts and ideas because I like doing crafts when I can.

I want to read something, I was a book worm in high school but then lost interest. I've been trying to read ever since and it's been unsuccessful. Is there a place where I could start?
I do enjoy playing games, so more adventure theme would be best or books that are detailed/vivid, or with pictures is okay. I have no idea where to start. I've thought about going to the children's section and reading some of the books there.

I've thought about reading the Pokemon books at some point, or Harry Potter (but I think that is jumping way to far for my comfort level right now) or reading My Little Pony, or something else related to those.

Sometimes the books can take a day to weeks to be ready, depending on where they are located and if there are any other holds for the same book. I want to place a few on hold because some have pending holds so it would be a bit.

Any ideas?

Have questions or would like to chat send me a PM

Unless I have a specific interest, book, or author in mind, I usually just go to a given section (usually the teen area, I should probably work my way out of there), and then look around the shelves for titles that grab my attention, read the summaries, and take out the ones that sound interesting. Most of the time they're good choices, sometimes not. If you end up hating a book, you don't have to finish it.
