    Default TBR Piles - So close and yet so far away...

    So, with my original 12 books in the TBR challenge I'm doing awesome - - just 3 left and am currently almost halfway through one of those. Woo-hoo!

    On the other hand, my actual current To Be Read pile may be getting away from me. If I count just books I currently have in my possession waiting for me to read, including the two I am reading, there are 28! And eight of those are from the library, some of which have already been renewed once. And I have 4 more I have placed a hold on and am waiting my turn. Luckily I'm anywhere from 4th to 12th in line for those, so I should have some time. I thought I was smart placing holds on a buch of popular books, since it takes a while for my turn. But they came up faster than I expected. Whoops!

    I have banned myself from further holds until I catch up. I loove the feeling of having lots to read. But this might be a bit much! Lol... Anyone else finding themselves biting off a bit more than they can chew too?

    awesome job on the challenge!

    My challenge pile is looking pretty good. I only have 4 left to hit the 12 books. I also have an outrageous TBR pile left. There are so many free ebooks out there. I have approx 170 of those plus a few paper books that I haven't read yet.
    There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. ~ The Thirteenth Tale

    Kelly, there's still loads of time. I just turned into the reading monster this year, I don't think I've read so many books so quickly since I was a kid.

    Way to go Laura! I think I need to stay away from ebooks, my obsession is bad enough with paper books, lol.
