Musing Monday - TBR Pile

It's been awhile since I participated in Musing Monday over at Just One More Page. But I am happy to say that I am participating again this week and will be trying to participate every Monday from now on. Anyway, here is this week's Musing:

How many books (roughly) are in your tbr pile? Is this in increasing number or does it stay stable? Do you ever experience tbr anxiety in the face of this pile?

Wow, my To Be Read pile is not as out of control as it use to be, but it is still in need of some serious taming. If you want to know how many actual books I have sitting at home waiting to be read, that number is probably around 200. Now I do need to go through those because some of them no longer interest me and can be weeded out.

Then you have the virtual To Be Read Pile. Those are the books that I want to read, but I haven't picked up yet. I don't have an actual list of these (something else for me to work on), but I would guess that number is somewhere closer to 100 and can easily grow any time I set foot in a bookstore or library.

The only anxiety this question brings up in me is the worry that my books are getting out of control and I'll never be able to read them all. Considering the size of my pile and the rate at which I add books, that is a legitimate concern.

This question reminds me that I really need to clean my bookshelves off and at least get my wish list of books to read written up. Ah yes, more tasks that need to be completed.

To see more answers to these questions, head over to Musing Mondays at Just One More Page.

more time working on projects about your books is just less time to read!
