Right now I have 5 stacks of books next to my bed that I NEED to read ASAP. Then there’s my shelves, where it is a mishmash of things that have been read and need to be read. I don’t really have any way to organize my shelves. I just tend to shove things in, which is probably the worst way to go about it. And If I let myself think about how many books I have to read I just can’t imagine not being able to read them all. It gets so overwhelming I just can’t see an end to all the books. Sometimes it just seems that I can never make a dent. The stacks keep getting bigger and bigger and I love books but there is no end in sight. I don’t tend to think about my TBR very often but when I do I just can’t help but think, where does it end? How will I have enough time for all these books? Should I get rid of some books that I only picked up because they were on sale? But then there are those books you read that you never expect to love, but then you read them and you fall in love! Then I have to think about, how do I cut down my TBR? How do I even begin to pick which book to read? So many thoughts run through my mind when I actually think about how many books I have yet to read. It’s a lot to think about and I tend to have to shut off that line of thinking because if I continue I will end up building a fort, crawling inside and never coming out. Although then I would probably be able to make a dent on that reading pile.
I have signed up for Spring clean your TBR, so that should help alleviate some of my TBR. But what about you guys? Do you have a huge TBR? Does it overwhelm you to the point of driving to build a blanket fort and never coming out? How do you sort out what to read and what to just chuck? Do you ever feel like you just want to quit?
