It’s mid-November, which means it’s about time to get into another book tag. Here is the original post, created by two people, and the moment I saw it, I knew I had to do it. Especially considering how long my TBR is!
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I’m old-fashioned, I know, but I keep a literal notebook filled with my TBR books. I also have my unofficial books that I want to read, but haven’t added to my TBR (those are all still up in my head). I used to keep a Goodreads TBR shelf, but I found the books get mixed into those I’ve already read. I just prefer to have an actual notebook.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
Print. I rarely read ebooks. I do get some ebooks from the library, but I rarely buy them.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I’m a major mood reader, so usually I just glance through my TBR notebook unto my eye lands on something that I feel like reading.
A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest
I’m not quite sure about this answer, since I’ve transferred my TBR a few times, but I’ll go according to my most recent TBR notebook. I got this from the library once, but I never ended up reading it. So on my TBR it still sits.
A book recently added to your TBR
One of the blogs I follow (I don’t remember which, sorry) reviewed this book and it looked interesting. It’s about a young British woman who goes to teach the Qur’an to children in Ethiopia after her parents are murdered. I don’t know much more about it.
A book in your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover
I don’t usually put a book on my TBR just because of a cover. I’ve gotten books from the library on impulse because of the cover, but never putting a book on my TBR.
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading
This book analyses women and inequality. I put it on my TBR because it was recommended as one of the most groundbreaking feminine philosophy books. But, to be honest, I’ll probably never read it, because I’m not a fan of most feminist philosophers.
An Unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for
This book is coming out 2020 and is kind of a retelling of Persuasion.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone’s read but you
Most people I know have read and loved this book, and I have yet to read it. Someday!
A book on your TBR everyone recommends to you
Pretty much anything by Brandon Sanderson I get recommended all the time! I will eventually read him, but his books tend to be really long.
A book on your TBR you’re dying to read
I don’t die to read any book. There’s no book on my TBR I’m really anxious to read currently. If I was, I would be reading it already.
How many books are on your Goodread TBR shelf?
None, because I don’t have a Goodread TBR shelf. However, in my notebook TBR I have currently 910 books.
This is such a fun tag, especially since I often don’t think about my TBR. As always, I wan’t tagged and I’m not tagging anyone, but I’d love to hear your answers if you do this tag. Let me know your thoughts about TBRs in the comments, follow my blog for more musings and, as always,
Best wishes in your life full of adventure,
