TBR




Booking Through Thursday

Follow-up to last week’s question:

Do you keep all your unread books together, like books in a waiting room? Or are they scattered throughout your shelves, mingling like party-goers waiting for the host to come along?

Actually, all of my unread books/TBR pile are kept together inside three or four tote bags, which are split into two section inside each bags between my closet door and the side of my bookshelf. There are also some on the floor in un-tote bag, but is sitting next to the tote bags too. It's also split in two section. It's growing up way high now. I imagine there are over 180 + books in those piles! I never put my unread/TBR pile books in the shelves because there no room for it. All my keeper books are kept in those 3 book shelves. The one I know for sure that I be re-reading it again and again. But I think I may need to go and buy more shelves so that I can put my unread TBR pile books in it....or maybe just put my other keeper books that was left... all alone, away from the other 3 book shelves -- which wasn't done on purposed, honest! *LOL* -- into the new shelves. There just wasn't enough room for the other keeper books in the shelves that is already fulled...please don't tap your foot, cross your arm and give me that one eye stare...I can't take it!...*LOL*

I can't imagine how many books in there but I'm afraid to counts. The book itself been gathering together at night planning a conspiracy against me for not reading them fast enough or keep adding more newbies book to the TBR pile - with them. You know I like to sleep at night without worrying about my back - the devilish of the books *LOL*

How about you? Where do you keep all your unread books?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

I definitely need more bookshelves, but then I've nowhere to put them either because there's not much space for them either, LOL.

Counting books can become a full time occupation, so best to not bother :-)

TBR: mixed reactions?

Mae said...

I already feel like I'm cheating on my current read whenever I start another book! Now they're plotting against us?!

Alice Teh said...

I know exactly how many TBRs I have and I'm scared just looking at them. All my books are catalogued in LibraryThing and Facebook so there's no running away from them...

My books are everywhere, on bookshelves, in totes in the closet, on the nightstand and tables, in some kitchen cabinets, everywhere you look, lol. Getting more ebooks now as I'm out of room.
