In this post I’ll be referring to my “owned” TBR pile not just overall books I want to read.
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Goodreads. When I was moving my shelves and reorganizing them alphabetically by author’s last name, I made sure that the shelf I have on Goodreads for my owned books was up to date as well as making a owned-TBR shelf. However, I did leave a ton of unread books in
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 In Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover
This is the second book I’ve had on my TBR the longest since I added it in August 2013. One day soon when I’m in the mood for a nofiction crime book, I’ll be picking this one up.
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. I could also choose one of the books I somehow wound up with in the small nonfiction section I have in my closet due to relatives assuming which nonfiction books I’ll like. If I had to pick one that I put on my Goodreads version of my TBR and never removed it: I 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.
How many books are on your TBR shelf?
According to my Goodreads owned-TBR shelf: 121 books. I’m hoping to get this number down to under 100 by the end of the year.
