I hope you’re all having wonderful days as you read this post & if not, I hope your day get’s better.
Now, books. We all love them. Owning books? most of us love doing that too. But there’s always that healthy debate of what is too big of a TBR. And I personally think it’s a very personal thing, so to some, my TBR might seem tiny, but to me it is overflowing and pushing at the seams!
I have a whopping, 152 books on my TBR shelf. Now for you visual folk, that is the smaller two shelves in this below photo of my pretty shelves (this was taken when they were in full colour order, now the two small shelves are my TBR and the two taller ones my read shelves)
If you promise not to judge me, I’ll give you a close up of those beautiful but messy shelves.
Now you can see, that it is ALOT of books. In 2017 I read around 130 books. This year? As of the 19th of December, I have read 85 books. I’m hoping, at the very least to read 52 books next year as I am out of the country on holiday for a whole month & should hopefully be starting full time work.
This means, by my calcultions, ( a.k.a guessing ) I should at the very least be able to knock out 30-40 books off my TBR! ( Let’s be real here, that doesn’t sound amazing, the whole 52 would be perfect but it’s better to set achievable tasks and smash them! )
So anyway, what I’m trying to say is, here are the books I already own, and hope to read in 2019. I’m going to try to follow the one in one out rule, when I purchase the books myself. Just to cull them a little.
HERE, is my goodreads ‘beat the backlist 2019’ shelf for you guys to get a better look at, and why not add me over there while you’re at it?
How many physical books are on your TBR?
