The TBR Tag
I am at work all day today with nothing to do but sit here, so I decided to do a book tag. This is called the TBR Tag. Basically, there is a list of questions out there and I copy them here and answer them. Here we go.
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
My official TBR is on Goodreads. That's where I keep the list of all the books I want to read ever. I have a bookcase full of the books I own that I haven't read. You read that right. A Bookcase. Not a shelf. A full 5-shelf bookcase, double stacked. Yes. I need an intervention.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
It is mostly print. I have a few books on my Kindle that are waiting to be read also, but I'd say 90% is print. Now when it comes time to actually read the books, I might supplement the reading with audiobooks. I can get through a couple of books a month listening to them on my commute.
A book that's been on your TBR the longest.
That would be Night Film by Marisha Pessl. I'm terrified to read it. It's kind of a horror mystery book. I really need to get serious about that book.
A book you recently added to your TBR.
Mary Shelley: The strange true tale of Frankenstein's creator by Catherine Reef
A book on your TBR strictly because of it's beautiful cover.
I really don't think I have any of these. I mean, I have plenty of books on my shelf with beautiful covers, but they are all there because I actually want to read them for some other reason.
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading.
I definitely don't have one of these. I reorganized my bookshelves recently and sold or donated every single book I didn't want to read or reread. So I know that every book on my TBR is one I'm interested in still.
An unpublished book on your TBR you're excited for.
The obvious answer is the Janet Evanovich book I've been waiting for for months, but I'll find something less obvious. The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White. White wrote the trilogy about the Dracula myth turned upside down, where Dracula is actually a teen girl. This is the story of the poor little homeless girl who became Victor Frankenstein's friend.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone's read but you.
That might be All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.
Still Life by Louise Penny. Which might also fit for the above question, as well.
How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
543. That sounds like a lot, but the person who posted this tag before me had over 2200 books on that list. That would be overwhelming.
Do you have any fabulous answers for any of these question? Let me hear them!
