Strange question for a book blogger and reader in general, I know. But I have so many books on my TBR shelf! I’m not even counting my Kindle TBR’s anymore since I have over 700 of them. My physical TBR shelf has *goes to count* 68 books on it, with 7 of those on a different shelf because they don’t fit! It seems like for every 1-2 books I read and review from that shelf, I’ll then go out and buy 4-6 more to add to the shelf!
I’ve been telling myself this month that I am not allowed to buy any more books until I can at least see most of the books on my TBR shelf. It is currently stacked 3 rows deep, with books piled on top of the back row. Needless to say, in order to pick a book to read, I have to unpack the shelf until one catches my eye. Then I have to RE-pack the shelf.
But there are so many series you all are telling me about and reviewing that look so good! It’s hard not to pick up at least one or two of them. It also doesn’t help when friends and family bring me surprise books.
So… How do you handle your TBR piles? How do you keep yourself from adding more books to said TBR pile? DO you stop adding books to your TBR pile? And at what point do you tell yourself that you have a ridiculous amount of books to read and you need to stop adding to the pile?
