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!
