A few days ago I was tagged by Erin @ Jump Into Books to do a post all about my TBR pile. This tag was created by Rachel @ A Perfection Called Books and Dana from Dana Square. It's a super fun way to get a peek at how we manage our TBR piles and what exactly is on them!
How do I keep track of my TBR pile?
On a large scale: Goodreads. I add anything I even vaguely may be interested in reading to my 'Want to Read' shelf. I also keep track of what I am reading and participate in the GR challenge.
However, for review books I use Google calender and add/schedule books as I receive them.
It also gives me a bit more self control in NOT requesting if I see that a week or month is already crammed full of titles. Sort of. Occasionally.
Is my TBR mostly print or ebook?
I think it's split just about in the middle. I definitely have overflowing book shelf issues at home and love having a physical book best, but I use Netgalley and Edelweiss for almost all of my review book requesting.
How do I determine which book from my TBR to read next?
Generally, I read from my review schedule. So it's pretty much in approximate order of release date. However, when I get a bit ahead of schedule, I'll often read something from waaaaay down the line that I just can't wait to get to. I also take review advice into consideration in deciding what not to read. Once 3 of my trusted reviewers give it a thumbs down it's pretty much doomed and eventually bumped off my TBR pile completely.
A book that's been on my TBR list the longest?
I have shame.....
A book that I recently added to my TBR pile?
Again, I couldn't choose just one!
A book on my TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover:
I love everything about this cover. I love the wintery scene on the tea cup. I love the birds. I WANT that ring. The title font is perfect. It doesn't even matter what this book is actually about. I will read it.
A book on my TBR that I NEVER plan on actually reading:
I am truly, never, EVER going to read this book. I don't like Peter Pan. I don't care how good it is, or how pretty the cover is. Sure, it's on my TBR, but I'm never going to get to it.
An unpublished book on my TBR that I'm excited for:
I want this book so bad that I actually feel whiny about it. It's not faaaaairrrrr! *sob*
A book on my TBR that basically everyone has read except me:
I swear I'm going to read it soon. I WANT to. I really, really do!
A book on my TBR that everyone recommends to me:
Pretty much EVERY JLA series qualifies for 'most recommended' and I'm all about it. I read and loved Don't Look Back a LOT and I can't wait to get to these! Though she writes so many books I fear I will never catch up!
A book on my TBR that I'm dying to read:
THIS is happening soon. I've been holding off so that I can do a reread of Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph, but I don't think that's realistic and I'm tired of waiting!
The number of books on my Goodreads TBR shelf?
1,417 and counting. ;)
I now tag:
Sara @ The Hiding Spot
Jen @ YA Romantics
Rebecca @ The Library Canary
Jen & April @ The Starry-Eyed Revue
Rachel @ Paper Cuts
Joy @ Joyousreads
I hope you have as much fun as I did!
