The TBR Tag Edition

The TBR Tag Edition

I wasn't tagged in this but saw it going around wanting to join in (thanks to Whimpulsive.) It's a meme based on the TBR pile...and for me, mine always seems to be growing.

1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile? 

Goodreads is definitely my friend - and enabler. Every time I receive a book, I list it on Goodreads first, then stamp and sort to be put up when I'm in the mood. I made a post about this awhile ago

2. Is your TBR mostly print or eBook?

Definitely print. I have over 2,300 books to read waiting for me on my bookshelves. Less than a 100 digital, I don't like those to grow too out of control.

3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next? 

Much of it's by mood. Last year I created a section by month (on Goodreads) that I was planning to read, but this year I did sections by genre I planned to read this year, and move them from the order of the shelves when I finished them. 

4. A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest?
I have no way of knowing this.  There's been a lot of books I've had a long time on the shelves.

5. A book you recently added to your TBR? 

The newest book I added is:

6. A book on your TBR strictly because of it’s beautiful cover.

I'm not sure I have one picked out for cover art alone, but it definitely draws my attention first when browsing in the bookstore.

7. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading.

There's a lot of romance I need to sort through that I've been gifted, but will probably never read because I don't like the types (Harlequin suspense) or themes (cowboys, etc.) Need to sort through them someday. 

8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

Can't decide between both of these; the word excited is an understatement:

9. A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you.

Likely tons, but here's one that comes to mind -

10. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.

Everyone tells me to finish the Harry Potter series, which I completely plan on doing.

11. A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read. Right this second…

I'm reading several now I've really been wanting to read for awhile. One I'm currently reading is Lonesome Dove.

12. How many books are on your Goodreads or Librarything (etc...)TBR shelf?
Right now the TBR shelf is 1,896...hopefully I'll be able to read that eventually!

I'm not tagging anyone specifically - just throwing this out there to grab if you think it sounds fun to do.
