Q: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

A: TOO FREAK MANY. I looked on my Nook for my ebook count and then counted my paper books (bought and borrowed). Total 705. I need more time to read!

I decided that I'm only doing Follow Friday once a month for 2012. I thought I would take a look at the question each week and when one grabbed me I would choose that week.

This one really got me to thinking so I had to pick this one. See this is why I've been on a buying band for about 4 months now. I don't need to buy any more books until I read the ones I already have.

It also shows that I may the right decision to not take on any new review requests. I've got to get my TBR pile down.

So how high is your pile?


  1. LOL. I wish I could say no. I only counted my print books sweetie. I didn't include my Nook books, Net Galleys, and everything else. Sometimes it's just too hard to keep track of. Great idea. I may have to start saying no to review requests.


  2. Wow. I can't imagine having that many books at all!! Good luck with getting down that TBR pile!

  12. Alison's comment made me laugh! I, too, wish I could have more books. I wish I had a house big enough for a room just for books, my own library if you will. Hell, I wish I had my own library!
