Today's Musing Monday prompt:
How many books (roughly) are in your tbr pile? Is this in increasing number or does it stay stable? Do you ever experience tbr anxiety in the face of this pile? (question courtesy of Wendy)
Oh man, the question I have been dreading! My To Be Read (TBR) pile - or actually piles in my case - is so huge, I'm afraid to try and count them. I have a pile in my living room, one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom - and believe it or not, one in the bathroom. Hey, don't fault me, it's a great place to read!
Since I retired from my RN job, I have been more frugal about buying books, usually opting to only buy from my favorite authors, or books I've read from the library that I enjoyed. However, the number of review copies of books I have received over the past year is HUGE!! In addition to reduced reading time, I'm totally behind on book reviews.
Probably the largest of my TBR piles is the used chair in my living room. Of course, the reason it is unused is because it's full of books, but that's besides the point. For some reason, I'm one of those people who likes to have my books in sight, or at least at my fingertips, so my TBR "chair" is right next to where I normally sit, so current books are within easy reach.
Of course, my love of reading has rubbed off on my youngest daughter, and the TBR pile in her room is growing by leaps and bounds. She works a weekend job just to be able to support her book habit. Oh my, I've created a mini-me - and I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing!
