Every week the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Crazy for Books, asks a question, then encourages book blogger to see what others have written on the same subject. This week’s question is
“How many books are currently on your To-Be-Read (TBR) pile?”
For me, the answer to this question depends on what you mean by a TBR pile. I have a list of over 400 books that I’d like to read. These are usually books I have heard about from others or seen on lists of book recommendations and have caught my interest. Having such a big list is useful, since it allows me to plan what I’ll read next. When I’m at a large used bookstore or library, I no longer disappointed when my first choice isn’t available, since I have plenty of other books to read.
I have a much smaller pile of books that are actually present in one way or another, whether that be audiobooks and ebooks that I’ve downloaded, but haven’t started on yet or actual physical books on my shelves that I plan to read. I don’t keep an actual list of these books, but I estimate it to be around twenty books. I like to have a few options on my phone to listen to or read when I’m stuck in a waiting room, and I always have some audiobook ready for the car. The actual physical pile of books is only two to three books sitting on my nightstand, waiting to be read.
