Books, books and more books

The TBR Bookcase

I will share with you my not-so-secret addiction. It is, of course, books. I like gardening books, history books, poetry books, fiction, children's books, books, books and books. At the last count we had approximately a squillion books in this house. The Prof has the same problem. Maybe we should form a support group.

After Christmas, taking into account books I received as presents and ones I already owned, there were 26 books on my To Be Read shelf. I vowed not to buy any more books until I had read them all.

Guess how many To Be Reads I have now? A quick scan of the bookcase makes it 30. Not bad going considering I have read eleven books so far this year. so 26 minus eleven equals....uh, think I may just possibly have accidentally bought a few more books. Actually, I think my initial count at Christmas excluded some books that I had read a little of, so if I am totally honest we are not looking at a TBR pile, rather a TBR bookcase.

  1. Oh, I so sympathise with this problem - I posted only this week on a similar subject!! I have around 60 TBR. And yesterday, I had some Amazon vouchers, so I ordered five more - what WAS I thinking? I blame it on the fact I can't buy any make up or beauty products due to my 43 things ban! Caroline x
