I was tagged by Sabrina of I Heart YA Fiction. The TBR tag originated from a collaboration between Danasquare and A Perfection Called, Books – driven by curiosity and perhaps for want of insights on how the rest of us manage our piles. Well, I can tell you in all honesty, that I fail at this. Quite, epically. Anyway, here are the questions.
How Do you Keep Track of Your TBR Pile?
Most of the answers to this question is Goodreads and whatever virtual bookshelves everyone uses. Goodreads is actually a tool that I only use to seek out books. It doesn’t help me keep track of how massive my TBR is getting (because I know the answer to this). It’s actually counterproductive for me. When I log on to Goodreads, I end up adding more books.
Is Your TBR mostly print? Or e-books?
Mostly print. According to Goodreads (okay, I get it now), my TBR shelf has 1,818books. Whelp. But. That number includes books that are future release. So to determine the correct number on my pile, my OWN SHELF has 1,313 unread physical books. Kill. Me. Now.
How Do You Determine which Book to Read Next?
Unlike most of my bookish friends, I don’t request ARCs (I’m not privileged enough) nor do I do a lot of blog tours ( I rarely get invites for those). So I’m not pressed for time. Nowadays, I read to my heart’s content. Since discovering audiobooks, however, I’ve been going through my doorstopper pile. So any books containing a minimum of 500 pages are the ones I’m listening to now on top of the books that I think I’ll be able to get through fast. There really is no rhyme or reason for my method. I just. Do.
A Book that’s been on Your TBR List the Longest.
I’ve been reading bits and pieces of this book off and on since October of last year. I’m not making any headways.
A Book You Recently Added to Your TBR
A Book in Your TBR strictly Because of its Beautiful Cover
I’m a fan of white covers. These books are just examples of how much.
A Book in Your TBR that You Never Planned on Reading
There are too many to mention but I did a Top Ten Tuesday prompt a while back about books that will probably not see the light of day.
An Unpublished Book in Your TBR that You’re Excited About.
I don’t have a publishing date. I don’t have a cover. I don’t even have it on my TBR. But a selection of my poetry is being published along with some other incredibly talented poets some time in November.
A Book that Everyone’s Read But You.
A Book on Your TBR that Everyone Recommends to You
A Book on Your TBR that You’re Dying to Read
How Many Books are in Your TBR Shelf?
One thousand three hundred and thirteen physical books.
So yeah. Don’t feel bad. Some have it worse than you. 🙂
Hey. Feel free to do this. It’s fun and well, eye-opening.
Tag! You’re it!
