#TBRTuesday! I started out the month with this graphic chalk full of choices for October, but little by little I‘ve knocked off one here and one there...we‘ll see if anything else falls off the list before the end of the month. I have two others started, not sure if I‘ll finish either, but I do have 2 whole days left.🤪🤣

What is still sitting on my possibilities for October TBR shelf!

I took 3 off that I finished, and I have 4 in progress!

Lots that will help me catch-up on some series I have going #SeriesRead and possess some creatures for #TeamStokers #Scarathlon, plus a few for #Booked2019!


TheReadingMermaid I think it'll be a great month for all of us! Wait until 24B4Monday hits! 😲 Then things will really get crazy! 🧟‍♀️ 1mo
TheSpineView You have some good reads in that mix!🖤🎃🧡 1mo

Hah! This is awesome, but there is now way I will be reading 638 books a year EVERY year. Last year was just extra nuts! Thanks to @chaoticgoodhufflepuff for posting the link. ♥️

Check out you #TBRTime at https://www.readitforward.com/tbr-time/

Pruzy Nice! Time for me to count up the unread books on my shelf and give this a try! 3mo
chaoticgoodhufflepuff 638!?! 😱😱😱 I am in awe! 3mo
Clwojick @chaoticgoodhufflepuff Hah! Yeah, it was a good year for audiobooks. But I also read a lot of shorter books like graphic novels, poetry, and middle grade. They certainly weren‘t all 400+ pages. 😂 #Litsy can be pretty life changing when it comes to inspiration and motivation to #READALLTHEBOOKS 3mo

jb72 That‘s amazing! I‘m only reading a little over 100 books a year. I waste way too much time on other things. 3mo

Here are my TBR options for #24in48. Realistically, I don‘t know how much reading I‘ll get to do, since I have family coming to town and some homework still to finish, but I‘m still excited to participate even a little.

BekahB I'm still trying to decide what I want to include in my #24in48 stack. I definitely have a couple unfinished books that I should probably read. 4mo

Do you find that a TBR list that has an end date to be a good idea and focuses you to finish those books by that date? #tbr

Tamra I‘ve learned I am too much of a mood reader for a list, but I love the idea! 6mo
melissajayne @Tamra I am too, but I want to finish some of these because I‘m not getting them done & I want to read them. 6mo
Tamra @melissajayne I hear you! I did enjoy the Odyssey WAY more than I thought I would and now I‘ve read Circe and going to read Penelopiad. 😁 Just the other day in the bookstore I was looking for a copy of Emily Wilson‘s new translation of The Odyssey. 6mo

Kaye I think we all like to read differently. A list would put me off reading totally. I just Read By the Seat of My Pants, if that makes sense. Whatever I‘m in the mood for, or that holds my interest, is what I go with. Any regimented list that I have to stick with, I‘m not good at doing that. 6mo
MelissaSue81 I try some times.. I try to only list about half of the number of books I actually plan to read though because otherwise I won't make it because I need to change up my reading based on my mood.
wanderinglynn No, that doesn‘t work for me. But what did help me get some books off my TBR and into the read-pile was @TheReadingMermaid‘s #MayScavengerHunt. That really got me reading through my pile as I already had a book that fit every prompt! 😂 6mo
TheReadingMermaid Awe shucks, thanks @wanderinglynn 😘😘 6mo
megnews If I made a list like that I would probably find other stuff to read and not finish any of them in time. My reading moods change too much. 6mo

For those of you who feel overwhelmed by your TBR list! You should check out this article!

I weeded out my TBR on GoodReads earlier this year and got my list from over 400 to 260!

You shouldn‘t feel bad about removing a book off your TBR!

Full article here: https://bookriot.com/2019/04/30/weed-your-tbr

Kaila-ann I do that periodically since I‘ve noticed that my reading habits/preferences change 🤷🏻‍♀️. 7mo
Princess-Kingofkings I do this as well yet feel guilty every time. 😞 7mo
Beatlefan129 This is really good advice. When I started my TBR on Goodreads, I found myself adding books that I felt I should read, not that I actually wanted to read 7mo
See All 7 Comments
Laughterhp @Kaila-ann Same. I had books I added in 2015/2016 that aren‘t really my taste anymore! So I didn‘t feel bad removing them. 7mo
Laughterhp @Princess-Kingofkings I try not to feel guilty. Before I remove them I ask myself if it‘s really something I‘m going to read. If it I‘ll keep it, but I might remove it the next time I update my TBR. 7mo
WhatWouldJaneDo I know the author of this post - had to share with her how much you liked it! 7mo

#LiteraryLuck @vkois88 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks #TBRShelfie

This is my GoodReads where I am organizing my books by shelf. Each book is only on one shelf. This isnt including my Kindle books. THIS ISNT EVEN ALL OF THEM YET........My TBR list is scary...

TheSpineView I feel your pain!😟 9mo

I have a question for my fellow readers out there, so yes, all of you. How do you manage your TBR list? I mean books that you own and need to read. Tell me all about it. Im curious to have a number of how many books on mine but also something thats easy to use. Goodreads? A notebook? Sone other app or site?

Pamwurtzler I use various Goodreads shelves. I mostly read kindle books so I have a separate shelf for books I‘ve purchased and a half for library books. 9mo
jessinikkip Nice idea @Pamwurtzler ! Im trying to get an idea of ways to do it because I have a lot of books and a lot of Kindle books to make it through and I just really need an efficient way to do it 9mo
TheLibrarian I use Goodreads (own and want to read) and LibraryThing for just the books I own. I love both of them for different reasons. 9mo
See All 16 Comments
jessinikkip Thanks @TheLibrarian ! Another who uses different GR shelves. I feel that will be a popular choice. I have never gotten into LT much. What makes you enjoy it? 9mo
akckitty @jessinikkip What I do to not overwhelm myself since I have a lot... I average about 6-10 books a month. So I grab on the safe side 6 books for a month that I wanna read. And write it down. I use a journal. I then write down approx the dates I'd start reading in the month to when I'd finish it and then start the next book. It keeps me accountable and focused on a small amount of books too, to avoid ignoring or not reading them! 9mo
akckitty @jessinikkip those apps are good for organizing your reads but it sounds like you are overwhelmed by what you have in your TBR. Figure out what you know you'll read and just focus on those and write it down or use a phone memo, etc. Something you know will help you :) if you do it in small portions its easier, I think! 9mo
TheLibrarian You can have different shelves for LibraryThing too. My Goodreads gets too cluttered with all the want to read books so I made LibraryThing own/have read only and didn‘t separate by genre. I also love tedious activities such as cataloging all my books in different apps. It brings me great joy 😂 9mo
akckitty @jessinikkip if you have a lot of physical books & Kindle books (like myself) organizing them on your Kindle as mentioned is a great idea too in the shelves. And I like to pick a couple Kindle books and physical books to work through the stacks. If at the end of the month I've read what I had committed to, then I pick some random ones that look interesting to me and no biggie :) 9mo
TheSpineView I use both GoodReads and Library Thing. I also have an app on my phone that contains all my physical books both read and unread. Nothing is totally up to date but I am getting there. 9mo
jessinikkip Thanks @akckitty @TheSpineView and @TheLibrarian ! I have shelves on my kindle that range from NetGalley only books to only true crime books to shelves for individual series. I had been using a notebook but as I added books and crossed them out, it was never an accurate count of how many I had to go. 9mo
jessinikkip My brain cant handle planning out my reading in order, just in a large overview bwcause I decide what Ill read next once I close the current book... I always have. Just my current TBR situation isnt cutting it anymore. Ive way outgrown my noteboon 9mo
deadrabbitsbooks The rest of my life is so organized on google calendar, I can‘t bear to have my books on there. So I prefer tried and true bedside book stack for my tbr pile 🤷🏼‍♀️ 9mo
jessinikkip Nice @deadrabbitsbooks ! My wife made my bedside table stack slim down to what Im reading right now haha! Do you arrange them in a particular order, or just read what speaks to you next? 9mo
deadrabbitsbooks @jessinikkip I read what speaks to me, whatever I‘m in the mood for really 9mo
RainyDayReading I‘m a huge mood reader so I just pick up what sounds good. A few years ago when I started to run out of space on my shelves I started pulling off the books I had already read. I store those in a tub now so all the books that are out are unread. I use Goodreads to keep track of the books I own so I don‘t get duplicates. 9mo
Kaye I might be weird, but books sitting within sight waiting TBR , really bugs me. I think it‘s my Opposite of Hoarder Disorder. I cannot stand clutter. Things being left out that aren‘t currently being used. I have to store my books away in the closet where I can‘t see them. I only pick out one at a time. When I used to be on GR, I didn‘t even list a TBR on there, and don‘t have one in here. It bugs me to see things that need done and aren‘t. 9mo

New releases. A big part of why #MountTBR exists in the first place 🙄

Emilymdxn I just preordered the Toni Morrison one! 10mo
SW-T @Emilymdxn Yay! Hope you enjoy. Look forward to your review whenever you get around to it. I‘m trying sooo hard to clear out what I already have before I go on a buying splurge. But so much looks good 🙄 10mo
Emilymdxn My rule for this year is I can buy new books on kindle or audio but not physical ones. I have to read some of my physical books and get rid of them - I just moved back in with my parents and I do NOT fit in one room anymore. Scaling mount tbr is hard tho 10mo
SW-T @Emilymdxn Great idea 😊 I‘m trying to use Overdrive, Hoopla, and Libby more until I reduce my physical and digital piles. Slow progress, but it‘s progress. I‘m sure your parents appreciate you not commandeering all their storage space! 😊 10mo

My tbr pile is massive. It makes me anxious looking at that number knowing I‘ll never get to them all. So I‘ve started going through my list for the first time in awhile and taking out books I added awhile back I know I‘ll never get to. I‘ve already taken 100 off. #tbrcleanup

TheSpineView I have the same problem! 10mo
Vexingcircumstance I try to prune mine regularly because I will add stuff randomly as I come across the titles in magazines or other books or online and then later be like “that sounds nothing like anything i would like”. So I need to go through it regularly and get rid of the randomness. 10mo
BookishGirl06 @Vexingcircumstance I add randomly too. I figure if I don‘t remember adding it and I‘m not super excited for it, why keep it on my list 10mo
