The TBR Book Tag

Thank you Erika in Bookventureland for the tag!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile? My TBR list is in Goodreads. I shudder every time I check the list. Every day I run across more and more books I’d love to read. If all my books were physical, then this list would be shorter (only so many bookshelves can fit in one room).

Is your TBR mostly print or eBook? Predominately eBook. I LOVE print books. I’d rather own all print books, but the reality is it’s not possible to have 2K+ books on a TBR and own all of them in print. I don’t have that kind of money.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next? Sometimes the cover intrigues me. Other times, it’s the blurb. Although I review books, I rarely choose a book solely on someone’s review.

A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest?  It’s been on my list since December 2014. I haven’t purchased it and couldn’t get it at the library. Just need to commit to spending the money.

A book you recently added to your TBR? Kind of difficult. I just added three whole series today by Shannon Mayer.    

A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?  This was a tough question. Covers draw me in, but if the book has nothing to offer me (blurb isn’t what I thought the book would be about), then it doesn’t end up my TBR.

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading? Can’t answer that one. I never put a book on my TBR I have no intention of reading. Now, I may start a book and find it’s so hard to finish that I can’t. In all honesty, in one year I’ve only run across THREE books in that category. One book simply didn’t hold my interest, but I saw it was worthwhile to other readers. Another one, I couldn’t figure out where the book was headed. The third, I don’t talk about.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for? Too many!


A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you?  

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you? Another hard one. I don’t pay a lot of attention to recommended books (shhhh, you didn’t hear that from me). 

A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read? There are quite a few books I’m just dying to read NOW….here are two:  

How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf? This borders on insanity (I added books while working on this post)…2,315! I’ve read 173 so far this year. So, it might take me another year (or two) to finish this list. At some point, I need to prioritize…

Hey, what’s a book worm to do who has a serious addiction? Besides, there’s always new book boyfriends and worlds to discover!

I’m tagging: Reading Is My Treasure and By Hook or By Book. Anyone else want to join in the fun?
