Help. I’ve fallen into the trap of adding too many books to my TBR pile. It’s looming above me, it’s sky high, it feels so unattainable. How can anyone ever keep their TBR under control? Seriously, I need some ideas!
At the moment, all I do to try and control it is a great weekly/bi-weekly meme made by Lia @ Lost in a Story which helps me sift through some of the older books on my Goodreads tbr shelf to decide whether reading them still appeals to me or not. While it seems to be working, I’m removing around 5 books a week, it still doesn’t feel enough because my list probably grows by 5 books a week too!
My Goodreads tbr shelf is currently on 600+! I have around 30 books on my Netgalley account that need to be read, 25 on my Kindle and another 50, or so, on my bookshelf at home… how did it get to this?!
I’ve tried no buy weeks, and I’m pretty good at them tbh. I can go a whole week without buying a book, sure. I can go a whole two weeks without buying a book. I’ve also tried to stop requesting books on Netgalley, it’s not the end of the world if I don’t get to read a book before it’s out, I can always buy, but free is just so appealing!
Do you guys have any tips on how I can reduce my tbr pile significantly, or ways to keep it at a steady number, for now?
p.s. I hate myself for that image I went out of my way to make…
