TBR Pile--A Dangerous Thing

In the last few months my TBR pile has grown in leaps and bounds. I used to keep about 10-15 books on hand at any given time. It now totals close to 100 which is absolutely outrageous, at least for me. I know some people have hundreds that go back for years, but I've never been this way.

I spent time this morning updating my sidebar to include books I'm planning on reading next. Oh well, more books showed up this afternoon and once again the sidebar is wrong and I'm now reading Meg Cabot's Every Boy's Got One, notice it's not on the sidebar.

A while ago I cleaned out my bookcase next to the bed and filled it with the TBR pile, those books now seem to lost in TBR Neverneverland as I don't even bother to open the doors, I just stack the new books on top and read them. LIFO seems to be inventory control method of choice.

I need to get under control and need to work on this pile. I'm heading over to RT and pledge something for this months TBR challenge, maybe I'll actually stick to the darned TBR pile.

Have a good night, happy reading.

Er.. 100 books is not outrageous to me. I call that barely comfortable :)

My TBR pile would be much more manageable, but I keep adding to it! Good luck getting through your challenge, Tara Marie.

I'm cleaning out my bookshelves with the firm intention of getting rid of half my books.

Well, I'm going to try.

Renee--I know that some readers have huge TBR piles, I've never been one to keep a lot of books on hand, but since I started blogging I keep finding more books "I need to read."

Mary--exactly, your problem is the same as mine--LOL, we're bookaholics.

Sam--I've already gotten rid of 1000 books since the beginning of September--isn't that frightening-LOL!!!
