Overcoming the TBR pile

I'm pretty sure I have more books unread than read in my house now. Very sad and I'm not sure I should mention that to my husband. I think he might decide I don't need to buy any more books. So as Màili mentions that she's tackling her tbr pile, I decide that I need a plan for mine. Yes, a plan. For one thing, I have so many Harlequin Blazes and Intrigues. They take up a lot of space. Each is overflowing its shelf. So...I think I want to try to read at least one of each every week. They aren't terribly long, so it might work. I think. Eh, I can at least try. Maybe one a week. Something. They need to go and I can't make myself do that until I read them.

I also have to read Marriage Most Scandalous by Johanna Lindsey since I checked it out from the library. I'm sure there are other holds after me, so gotta read it. I also have to pick up Enchanted, Inc. by Shanna Swendson as it just came in and I think Beyond the Pale by Savannah Russe might come in later today. Gotta love the library. Need to return Sofie Metropolis by Tori Carrington, If You Just Say Yes by Reon Laudat, and Strange Attractions by Emma Holly. Didn't finish Strange Attractions, but I tried to start it. I might try again later. It just didn't grab me and honestly the beginning is rather boring. But I didn't get too far in, so I'll definitely try to read it again.

Not going to start my category tbr pile reading until next week since I still have a few review ARCs to read and review. Hopefully I can finish those up by this weekend.

Why not do Keishon's TBR challenge? I think this month is Romantic Suspense. Worth considering?

I'll be interested to see if you can get into Strange Attractions. I can't seem to get past the premise, but maybe I'll give it another shot.

Well, actually I did read a romantic suspense that was on my tbr pile. Was a Barbara Freethy one that's now on its way to Wendy.

I promised myself I would dig into my TBR pile this summer. So far, I just keep buying new books, sigh ...

And then Sybil was evil enough to mention that Sins of the Night was out at Wal-mart, so naturally I HAVE to check it out at mine, just in case.

I must get my tbr pile under control! I must! We need buttons!

My TBR pile is irrevocably out of control!!

Jill said...

I have more books in my TBR pile than I'd like, but the thing is, the pile NEVER seems to go down ... And still I buy new books.

You know, my TBR was manageable before sybil and the trade group... :P
