Tackling the TBR Week 42: Nov 8 - Nov 14, 2019

Basically, I have a huge TBR and often end up reading new books that are not even on my list, instead of trying to whittle down the list that continues to balloon on Goodreads. I am going to make a real effort to get those books read instead of always grabbing new ones and thus never making a dent in the physical and digital stacks I already have. It will also gives me a chance to take a good look at my list and see if there are ones I'm no longer interested in. I will be posting on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and the last day of the month.

Previous Week's TBR Total: 3,222

Currently Reading: 3

Books Added to TBR: 4

Books Removed from TBR: 8

Books Read: 2

Books DNF-ed: 0

Duplicates Removed: 0

New TBR Total: 3,216

I've decided I am no longer going to count the books I am reading with Eleanor or my students in my 'Currently Reading' amount, because they are not books that were on my TBR.

Happy Reading!


  1. hope you can pare it down a bit; that seems like a pretty substantial burden to be carrying around...

    1. it is utterly EXHAUSTING not only thinking about this list, but just imagine all the books out there that have not even been PUBLISHED yet that I will want to read when they are!

  2. Wow! That's a long TBR! I have like 500 or 600, but that's only the owned ones (mostly on the Kindle). I try, but it just keeps growing xD

    1. I finally got everything organized and onto my Goodreads shelf. It took a while to get both the Kindle books and the physical ones up, but it was worth it just to have an accurate count.

  3. I have read two from the TBR this week so far. I have not added any but the week is not over yet!

    1. You've one day left in the week, you can resist! But you have 6 days until the next post goes up, so...


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
