This week, Crazy For Books asks “How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”
Well, the number of books in my house is very few, maybe 20 to 30. I wanted to free up space in my home a few years ago, so I sold most of my books and donated the rest to a woman’s prison program. Instead I decided to just keep a list of the books I am interested in reading and buying them as needed or checking them out from the library. This is must easier on the wallet as well. And when I do buy a book, I buy it on my kindle so there is still no piles of books to contend with.
So I keep my TO READ list on Good Reads.com – whenever I see a book I want to read I simply add it to my every growing TO READ list! I love that my list is accessible from any computer. If I need a name of a book…I can access it from my smart phone or the library computer. Easy enough and no piles of books over taking my house. Currently I have 320 books in my TO READ list at Good Reads. I can sort them how I want on the list and I like to use random number generator such as random.org to select a number and read that book. I always struggle on what should I read next???? Eliminates that problem.
