How Weird Am I?

I’m having a problem finding my next read for the following reasons:


#1. Everything I want to read is over 700 pages long and my OCD won’t allow me to go into 2016 with an unfinished book. Meaning, I need to have all my currently reading books done by December 31, 2015 @ 11:59. I don’t think I can fit in a 700+ page novel by then.


#2. I usually have one ebook, one audiobook, and one physical book all going at one time. Right now, the only books I want to read under 700 pages are books I own on audio only. The problem with this is, I’m listening to the final Harry Potter book, so I can’t start another audiobook with my OCD exploding.


#3. I rarely have the “I have too many books to be able to pick a book” problem because, if I ever get stuck, I use’s random number generator and Goodreads to pick my next read. I’ve used this program twelve times in the past hour and it keeps picking either books over 700 pages or audiobooks. ARGH!


Any of you this crazy OCD about your reads? Please tell me I’m not alone.

  1. I can’t say I can relate because it’s rare that I’m unable to decide what to read next. However, I do tend to gravitate towards the longer books.:)
