How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I use Goodreads (link) for a lot of it, but I do have stacks of books in my house that aren’t on there. So when looking for a book to read next I’ll go to Goodreads first, but if that doesn’t work I’ll go to my book stacks.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebooks?
I would say it’s fairly 50/50. Every couple of months I’ll cruise Amazon(link) for free ebooks, or head to the library for inspiration.
A Book That’s Been on Your TBR the Longest
Goodreads tells me that I have six vying for that title, but the one I want to read the most is Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy (Amazon).
A Book You Recently Added to Your TBR list
The last book I added to my Goodreads list was in Oct 2019 (compared to the oldest which was Oct 2011!), was The Order War by LE Modesitt Jr (Amazon).
A Book in Your TBR Strictly Because of It’s Beautiful Cover
Honestly, I don’t add books to my TBR list unless I physically (or digitally?) have the book. So for this one I’ll just pick the one on my list that fits this prompt: Active Patience: A Simple Guide to Productive Writing by N. C. Harley (Amazon).
A Book on Your TBR That you Never Plan on Reading
Honestly, there really isn’t a book on my TBR that I don’t plan on reading at some point. Having said that, I do have a coloring book on my TBR list, and a person doesn’t typically read a coloring book. It’s this one: Amazing Animals 2: Meditation, Relaxation, and Stress Relief with Unique 34 Amazing Animals (Amazon).
An Unpublished Book on Your TBR That You’re Excited For
I really do not have a book for this. All of them are published, and I’m not that person that I’ll go add one real quick just to answer a question. Sorry, not sorry.
A Book on Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You
I think a good answer to this one is Percy Jackson and the Olympians Boxed Set by Rick Riordan (Amazon). Even the movies have been out for awhile.
A Book on Your TBR That Everyone Recommends to You
I don’t really have a specific book, but the last book that I even talked about with someone was Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (Amazon), but only because of the movie that’s either coming soon or out already (and there was a Friends reference). Also, this isn’t technically on my TBR because I read it in 2014.
A Book on Your TBR That You’re Dying to Read
The first one that comes to mind is the Wrinkle in Time Trilogy by Madeleine L’Engel (Amazon). I remember reading the first book in grade school and not really getting it, but liking it anyway. Now I have the Barnes & Nobles collectors edition that is beautiful to look at. I can’t wait until I decide its the right time to read it.
How many books are in your Goodreads TBR list?
At the moment of writing this post I have a very even and pleasing 500. See for yourself.
It is traditional to tag others at the end of a tag post so feel free to consider yourself tagged and leave a link in the comments if you do this tag. I’d love to see others answer the prompts.
