Okay, it's blog hopping time! Woohoo!
This week, the good people over at Crazy-for-Books are hosting this great hop with a really fun and ridiculous question:
“How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”
Seriously?!?! Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! How do I even begin to answer this one? Legends have been told about the great pile that is my TBR pile. It haunts my dreams the magnitude of this stack. And yet I keep adding to it! Every single day! There are just too many books.
The most accurate count of my TBR pile is probably on Shelfari where the approximate number is 183. But even that is pure rubbish. I carry around a little notepad in my purse in which I am constantly jotting down books I want to read one day and those don’t normally make it to the website. Then there are all the books on the shelves of my parents’ house. So many books! Basically all of those are in my eventual-TBR, it’s just a matter of time before I
steal borrow them.
I try to tell myself I’ll stop adding to my TBR list. One day I’ll just cut myself off. Like someone with a serious drug habit or something. I need to see someone about this problem. Do they have some sort of rehab facility I could check myself into? I’ve seriously said to myself “okay, I’m not going to add anything else to my TBR for this whole summer.” And lo and behold, the next day there are 5 shiny new books in the pile. It’s like I blacked out and it just happened! I don’t even know how!
So really let’s just round up to a nice even number…1,000. No no. That’s too small. 3,000. That sounds more accurate. Oh, just found another one to add. 3,001.
