After seeing it done on the blogs The Book Shop Assistant and Fictional Distraction, I realized there was a necessity in doing this myself. So, I took some pictures.
Here is a picture of my shelves before pulling books I haven't read:
|Here are *most* of my YA/Adult fiction novels.|
It's a lot of books, but I did remove several of them to sell/trade/giveaway recently. So, how many of these do you think I haven't read yet? (Start placing your bets before you look at the next picture...)
Here is a picture of the books I haven't read yet:
|I know, RIGHT?!|
I couldn't believe it... The total of books I need to read is 81. EIGHTY-ONE. Of course, you have to take into consideration that I will buy several books in series I'm starting (like Kathy Reich's Temperance Brennen series and the Gossip Girl series). I like to snatch deals on series books when I can. Even if you take down those books, it's still a massive pile. And this isn't even counting the books on my Nook!!
Here's a close-up of the TBR pile:
See anything good in this pile that I am in dire need of reading next? I have a few in mind that I'm going to be taking with me on vacation middle of this month. I'd like to see if you guys recommend the same books. Which ones am I taking with me? You'll find out on a special post the day I leave for vacation. Muahaha!
And for the sake of amusement, here's what my shelf looks like minus the TBR books:
It's almost sad to see how many I have read versus haven't read. It'll be something I'll remedy soon enough. I've been slowly making my way through it. Working less helps. Plus my vacation will help too. We all go through this, don't we?
How about you?
How bad is your TBR pile? Does it just get worse and worse or have you tried to keep it down and read more?
