State of the TBR Pile: January 2017

I cleaned off my TBR piles this past week, getting rid of a bunch that I figure if I haven’t read by now, I’m probably not going to read. So, I thought, just for the record, I’d let you all know about all my different piles. Just to be different.

This pile is on my nightstand, and is generally what I go to first when I need something new to read. It’s generally a mix of backlist and front list and ones that are coming out soon. Sometimes there are even library books on there.

This pile is books I’m hoping to at least look at before the deadline for the Spring Kids Next List.

These are sequels that I REALLY want to get to sooner rather than later.

These are the ARCs that I’ve gotten that I’d like to read. Sometime. Hopefully. This is the pile that I culled a LOT from. It’s also a go-to place when the girls are looking for something new to read.

And these are books I’ve bought or been given that I don’t want to toss, but I haven’t read yet so can’t go on the shelves downstairs. Also, adult ARCs that I really should read. Eventually. Someday.

What do your piles look like?

  1. I did a huge purge last week and my bookshelves look so neat and orderly! (It won’t last…) Now, on to some actual reading. I made a list of all the books that entered my house last year, it scared me, so now I am working on read the bunch I never got to last year. First up is Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood. I started that this morning. I suck at book lists and projects, so we will see how this goes! lol

    I also do different piles!! I have a pile that I need to read right now, and one right next to it out of which I need to pluck a book from should the main read become a DNF. I just restructured a pile of books I already own, trying to sneak them in one by one into current TBR one instead, because otherwise I would NEVER get to read those if they are just in a pile together. And there are some books that I really want to! I also started this slightly weird way of reading big volumes (like H.P.Lovecraft “Tales of Terror” at 600 pages I kept staring at, or full Arthur Conan Doyle at about same page count or any really really big book), so I read just one story/novel in between my main readings out of those and that’s the only way I was able to make any progress with it.
    I also had “Quiet” by Susan Cain in my TBR pile FOREVER; seeing it in yours inspired me to actually go for it as my next read. šŸ˜Š
