TBR Shelf Management - Book Blogger Hop (June 17th)

After tirelessly scanning the various Friday memes this morning, we’ve decided to partake in The Book Blogger Hop over at Crazy-for-Books!!!
Question: How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) pile?
Answer: Right now we have 379.7589 books on our TBR shelf.  However, it should be noted that his number changes daily.  As a general rule we work off compilations generated from the BBC Big Read, Time, Modern Library, and some obscure Facebook prove-your-literacy-strength list.  We also welcome recommendations from the Book Blogosphere.  With so many books vying for our attention it’s often difficult to decide on our next book.  Currently, the winners are: 
1.       A Small Fortune
2.       Capote
3.       Guards! Guards!
4.       Northanger Abby
5.       Radical
6.       The Help
Obviously, the above choices could change without notice or explanation...  Can't wait to find out how everyone else is managing their piles!!! 


  1. And I thought 100 was a lot! The few books you listed sound wonderful. Capote and Northanger Abbey are on my tbr as well.

  2. Hopping through! Just started following you.

  3. Hopping through...your list of to-reads looks intriguing. I'm curious about Radical. Loved The Help.


  4. Old follower hopping by.

    I used to take suggestions, but then I found that I still had a lot of books at home to read. The pile was getting out of hand, so I had to stop. Now I keep a list of books on my laptop, and choose one using a random number generator when I finish with the last.

    How did you end up with a decimal?

  5. My goodreads TBR list has hit over 350 and that is mostly just books that I have seen on blogs that I wish to read. I am having a challenge with a friend to see who can read the most books off the BBC list, so far I think she is winning!

  9. I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

    Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

    Stressful, right?


    Hop on over to my blog - and find out why.

  10. I just wanted to let you know that I'm following your blog after seeing it listed among Gabriel Reads' recommendations.

    I hope you guys are having a nice weekend.

  11. 379.7589?!? Am I reading a period for a comma? If so, wow. Have a great weekend :)

  12. I enjoyed Northanger Abbey - very witty with some mean characters. I always read something different to what I've just read, unless it's a series.

  13. I loved Guards! Guards!! It deserves as many exclamation marks as it can get!
