I have to admit that TBR(To Be Read) stacks of books cause me great stress! Seriously! I'm the type of person that likes to complete a project before moving on to the next. As a reader/reviewer I have found that the TBR stack NEVER gets smaller! NEVER! This has really messed with my "finish the project" mentality over the years. Usually I end up going through my TBR stack and weeding out books once a year.
Here are a stack of books that I have really really wanted to read. Some have languished on the shelf for years, but I just can't bring myself to get rid of them because I really want to read them!! I just somehow manage to find other books hot off the presses that I want to read more:
Here are my "next up" books to read:
Here are a couple of books that a friend loaned me. While I really love John Grisham books, admittedly I just don't have time for them now so they will probably go back to her unread. She keeps all of her books so someday maybe I will have a chance to borrow them again:
And lastly there is my Kindle. I can't even fathom how many books are currently on there waiting for me to delve into as it would make me hyperventilate!
So is there a solution for the TBR stack? I doubt it! As it is even with all of these books waiting for me(and a few more residing in my daughter's bedroom) I have 3 books on pre-order from Amazon!
How about you? Do you have a large TBR stack or a small TBR stack? How do you tackle that stack of books? How much time do you devote to reading a day? As much as you want or are you like me and wish there were more hours for reading? How many books have your read this year? Do you keep track? I like to keep track and challenge myself. This year I challenged myself to read 125 books. Unfortunately I'm not going to make that goal. Next year I will lower that expectation. Do you have responsibilities that take you away from doing the reading you would like to do? I have a hobby that takes my time, especially around this time of year.
