Decide depending on your mood
In a bad mood and in need of a happy contemporary novel, want to be whisked away into a land of fantasy or are you simply stuck in a reading slump and in need of a much-loved favourite.
I personally do this. The mood I'm in after I've finished a book will really influence how I pick my next read.
Create a TBR jar?
You could create a TBR jar in order to get through your huge TBR pile.
You won't have to struggle to think what to read next. Your TBR pile will finally get smaller. You get to read books that probably would have been stuck on your TBR pile for a while.
You may not feel like reading the book you've picked.
