Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
While I forget to track my ebook TBR, or even add them to my kindle-own TBR, I think that have more unread print books.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
Typically, I find a balance between the library books I have out and which books that aren’t similar to those. I have been checking out the audiobook version of books I own recently to help get my TBR down.

A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading
There are a few options for this. I could name one of the Stephen King books I was given by a relative that I just can’t seem to give up on.

If I had to pick one that I put on my Goodreads version of my TBR and never removed it: 189569I believe my grandmother got me this for Christmas one year because she likes Napoleon; however, I am not the biggest fan, but if my path is ever crossed by the audiobook version of this it may get read.
