Tackling the TBR | Week 2 | Jan 8 - Jan 14, 2024


Here we go!

This is year FIVE of Tackling the TBR and I finally have things sort-of under control. My ultimate goal is to get under 500 books, but I also have to be realistic - just think of all the books not even written yet that I will want to read. When I started this mess  I was at well over 5,000 books on the TBR, so to be where I am now is pretty incredible.

I will post on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and last day of the month.

Prevous Week's TBR Total: 2,136

Currently Reading

I'm posting all my ARCs in the hope it will shame me publicly so I stop getting books from the library and read these instead. Odds are 50/50 that it will actually work.

  1. Every time I get mine down a little bit I add more books, LOL! I am staying around 750 just on the want to read shelf, not to mention my own to read, kindle own to read etc., but, progress is being made. I did not/am not doing ANY reading challenges this year in the hopes I will read more of what I own. It hasn't worked so well (YET) because I have been reading the books I had out of the library, but all the books from the library were on my TBR before 2024, so I am making it go down a little, it all balances, right?! Good luck with keeping your focus on these books, I feel your pain!

    1. I created a special secret sub-TBR on my phone because CK ( is always bringing books to my attention because we have such similar non-fiction interests. Basically I request those books from my library before putting them on my TBR and then they don't count, lol. I just want to get these ARCs done first, and then focus on my TBR. Ugh! But we can do it!


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