So, once again I was tagged by the wonderful Cait from Paper Fury (back when she was The Notebook Sisters), and this time, I’m talking about my TBR pile…

The metaphorical pile, not the literal one. Because I don’t have a literal one.

Question 1: How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Two ways-

Ok, I am ridiculously good at keeping track of books in my head. Like, seriously, it scares me sometimes. At the beginning of this year, I could give you a list of all the books I wanted that were going to be released this year, in the order of their release. I could have also given you exact (US) release dates for most of them.

2. On Goodreads
Because goodreads is an amazing website that lets you order shelves 🙂

Question 2: Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

Hard to say, given that it’s mostly virtual (aka goodreads). Also, chances of me ever actually getting around to all the free ebooks I’ve downloaded…well, let’s just say that the only TBR pile that really counts is my physical books.

Question 3: How do you determine which from your TBR pile to read next?Read Next

I’m a mood reader. If I’m not in the mood for it, I don’t read it. (Unless I get one of those library notifications that say “if you don’t return this book soon, we’ll make you pay money”…that usually convinces me to read certain books).

Question 4: A book that has been on your TBR pile for the longest?

Hard to say…they’ve all been there for so long. Seriously, I have no idea.

Question 5: A book you recently added to your TBR pile?

Recently? Oh, man, this is just as hard as question 4. THESE QUESTIONS ARE TOO HARD! WHY AM I PUTTING MYSELF THROUGH THIS!?

Question 6: A book in your TBR pile strictly because of its beautiful cover?

20141017-145319.jpgThere used to be quite a few of these…but they’ve all been read…and I was disappointed by most of them.
However, recently, A Thousand Pieces of You has caught my attention…

Seriously, it’s SO PRETTY!!

Question 7: A book in your TBR pile that you never plan on reading?

I’ll probably never get around to reading most of the ebooks on my ipad. I binge-downloaded most of them while I was bored (and they were free), and because I can’t see them, judging me for not reading them, I’ll probably not get around to reading them.

Question 8: An unpublished book in your TBR that you’re excited for?


But seriously, the wait for The Ruby Circle is killing me.

Question 9: A book in your TBR that everyone recommends to you?

tumblr_mxys7tf1LV1qzelrxo3_250I always hate questions like this, because I’m the only book nerd I know, with the exception of my sister, but I recommend her books. It rarely happens the other way around. My life is basically me throwing books at people, and those people not reading them. However, I still haven’t read We Were Liars yet. (It’s on reserve at the library).

The Stats

Virtual: 309

Physical: 34

ebook: 50 (estimate only)

Note: the ebooks TBR pile is purely made up of freebies from iBooks. Most of them are classics.

And now, the tagging!

I’m pretty lazy, and as such, I’m basically tagging anyone who wants to do this.

Also, I’m asking the question: Is your TBR pile a literal pile? Or do you just remember which books you have to read? Or is Goodreads the most amazing website ever?
