I am looking at my TBR pile. At the moment it stands at thirteen books!
(I’m not even including writing guides, reference type books and anthologies.)
Three have been started and not finished. One of my worst reading habits is to start reading something, get distracted and put it down somewhere and forget about it.
Two belong to other people and are on loan. Sorry K. Sorry R.
Four were gifts, two at my request from the lovely Welshman, and two that I probably wouldn’t have thought of reading if they hadn’t been kindly given to me. Thanks M.
Two were picked up at a book stall and cost about 50 pence each. Easy to go mad when books are that cheap!
The rest I paid good money for in bookshops, in some cases a considerable time ago. Why is it that I can’t walk into a bookshop without buying, not just one book, but a pile of books?
So given how huge my TBR pile is, what do you think I did yesterday afternoon? Well, obviously, I went out and bought a new book.
Fellow bloggers, please help me!
How big is your TBR pile?
How long do you think it will take you to get through it?
How small should my TBR pile be before I allow myself to go out and buy more books?
And while we’re on the subject of books, have a look at bookersatz the new book review blog. I’ve reviewed ‘One Good Turn’ by Kate Atkinson which I briefly mentioned on this site a while ago.
