We build our to-read lists from many sources. Instead of using this Top Ten Tuesday to talk about the most anticipated, I’m going to break down the last ten places where I discovered something for my to-read list.

18 books total:
39% from library training webinars (7 books)
33% from book blogs (6 books)
22% from Goodreads (4 books)
17% from seeing the physical book or continuing a series (3 books)
* Some titles from multiple sources. Percentages total more than 100.
The training webinars percentage is higher than usual as there have been a lot on topics I’m interested in recently. I’m also missing an in-person friends recs category in this sample size. The ones mentioned to me recently have all been books that I already had on my to-read list, but still haven’t gotten to.
Where do you find your to-read list from?
