Mount TBR

This was a topic during BBAW, but I didn't get it posted then, so I thought I'd do it now! (Plus, I fell asleep yesterday afternoon, and spent the evening playing with my new digital scrapbooking software!! so no reading was accomplished...)


I wasn't about to search out all my TBR books that I actually own because, well, they're all nicely sorted and shelved where they belong. This, then, is the library TBR pile. Or piles, rather.

Yeah, the piano doesn't get played a whole lot.

I think there are 13 books there. (Plus the kids' library books. They don't count, though.) Actually it could be a lot worse. I have been known to have every spot on my card filled (you can have 30 items out). At that point I start using my husband's! AND pretty soon it will be time for Boo to get her own! I think I may be more excited about that than she is.... 10 more hold spots!!

If you'd like to see my uber-scary virtual TBR pile, check out my To-Read shelf on Goodreads!

What does YOUR TBR pile look like??

  1. This is great. Looks sort of like my pile, but mine is scattered in more than one area. You actually look organized!

  2. Aw, thanks, I try!

    Really I just have to keep the library books together or they get lost!

  3. I took a picture of my TBR pile during BBAW too, but never posted it. It looks not nearly so messy as it did since I got my new shelves and have been organizing. It's still quite overwhelming though.

    Poor poor piano! Now that is one place I've never seen piled with books!

  4. I know, it's a sad piano. It does keep the kids from banging on it though.

    I need some sort of shelf to keep library books on...

  5. Here's something the library doesn't want you to know. If the librarian is in a super good mood and you promise to return some books soon, they can override the system and you can have more than 30 books out. More like 40. But I returned a bunch this morning and now only have 28 out.
