TBR pile update



After seven long months it's time for a little update on my TBR pile. All in all 37 print books are waiting to be read by me, four ebooks as well and another four audiobooks are waiting to be listened to. These numbers are pretty good for me, I don't feel anxious because of them, I know that I have a good variation of books at home, but not too much. 

In my last TBR pile update I was down to 20 print books and my goal was to stay at this number. Since then I changed my approach to my TBR pile a bit, I decided to be relaxed as long as I don't have more books than fit into the one shelf you can see in the picture above. This shelf is the perfect size for me, it doesn't matter if it's full or only half full, as long as my TBR pile books fit into the shelf the number of books is a good one for me. So yes, right now I'm very happy with my TBR pile, I'm right now a reader, that is relaxed in every way that is possible. 

Are you happy with the size of your TBR pile? Do you have a system that helps you to keep track of your TBR books?

  1. I use the Goodreads shelving and have orders. Mine is....very, very large. Doubt I'll ever read all of them!

    1. Very, very large sounds promising. ;)

  2. I have some books on my shelves, that I need to read, but I keep my TBR shelf mostly on Goodreads and LibraryThing. Easiest to keep track of it. I try not to stress too much about my TBR pile, since it is huge, but I can only read one book at a time, and to enjoy it while I am reading it.

    1. That's a great way to think about your TBR books, reading should be a relaxing activity and stressing too much about it never makes sense.
      Happy Reading!

  3. I hugely stress out about mine. I don't know how large it is now. Sometimes it bothers me so much, I'll reread a comfort read to relax me about it. The only hope I have is if we could go 2 years with no new books published.

    1. I don't want to destroy your hopes, but that might not happen. :) I think it's important to be relaxed about your TBR pile, if I could learn to then everyone can.

      Happy Reading!
