TBR Stacks - 2TBR Stacks - 3

 

 

 

October 22, 2009:  This blog was created.

Making progress on my huge TBR stacks is the purpose of this blog.  Beginning today, I intend to document this progress, in words and in photos.

Documentation will include reviews, discussions, ranting, raving, whatever!

It all began a few years ago, when I started passionately collecting books.  If I saw a book that I wanted, in the bookstores or on Amazon, I would buy it.  I bought them faster than I could read them.

When I moved to my current residence in 2007, I had so many that I had them boxed separately than my other books, marked “TBR.”  I didn’t want them to get mixed up with the books I had read.

I started reviewing books on Amazon around 2008, and then when I started blogging, I began reviewing in earnest.  This motivated me to get through these stacks.

But I kept adding to them.

So my first step toward making progress was to inventory them; I created a document for them on my computer.  Then I started this blog, just for the purpose of tracking this journey.

Since that day, I’ve made some significant progress; however, I’ve kept adding to the stacks.  Nevertheless, I feel more in control, just knowing that I have a way to document this journey.  I’m hoping that it will be a productive one.

Wish me luck!

  1. That top photo is quite the story of my life, stuffed animal included, x3 You have a book by Joyce Carol Oates! I keep squinting at the spine, but I can’t make out the title – and how I wish I could! I read a collection of Gothic literature edited by Oates, once, and I’m curious about her work. Sadly, it’s the kind of curiosity that so far has not translates into action. But I intend to read something by her!

    • Oh,Entish,the JCO book is called Black Girl, White Girl. I still haven’t read that one! I couldn’t make out the title from the photo, so I had to go into my room and see the actual book! lol

      Some of her books I’ve enjoyed more than others.
