INTRODUCING THE TBR JAR & MY PLAN….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now that January 2017 has arrived, we can get down to the business of wiping out the TBR piles.  Or at least whittling down the numbers.

Some bloggers use a TBR Jar…and I’ve been studying the receptacles around my house.  I settled on the little red container above.  It isn’t exactly a jar, but I like it…and it will serve the purpose.  Plus…it is bright enough that I won’t forget to pull book titles from it.

I still have some unread books from 2014, if you can believe that!  I counted them tonight, and not counting the DNFs that are already gone from the list, there are 21 remaining unread books.

Let’s look at 2015.  Using the same criteria, I found 14 unread books there.

And the first half of 2016, the part that doesn’t count for my new Read the Books You Buy Challenge:  there are 22 books.

Fifty-seven dusty old TBR books….not polished enough to make the cut of the 2017 Challenge.  So into the jar those titles go…and I will try to draw from it each week.  At least one of the oldies should come out every week, right?

We’ll see how that goes.

Currently I am reading one of those old books from 2014:  Desolation Row, by Kay Kendall.  I’m enjoying it so far.  Why did I wait so long?

Today I finished a book that counts for the new Read the Books You Buy Challenge:

The Sleeping Beauty Murder (e-book), by Mary Higgins Clark/Alafair Burke (click for my review).  This was my First Book of 2017, already finished.

Do you have plans for your TBR pile this year?  Are you enthused and rarin’ to go?  Please share.

  1. I have seen bloggers do this. I would think it gives you a bit of a surprise. Like “Okay so it’s the time of this one, I hadn’t planned it”! Hope it works well for you. Will be fun to give it a go anyway. You are off to an excellent start.

    • Yes, I have to be in the mood for certain books…but maybe I can push myself toward a book, just to see if my mood will change. And it’s probably okay to put one of the titles back and try again, if I don’t like the feel of it..LOL. Thanks for stopping by, Kathy.
