Tackling the TBR Week 10: Match 8-March 14, 2019

Each week I will be keeping track of books that I have read from my TBR. I have a huge backlog of books 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 up on Goodreads. Chuckles had the idea first, and we are going to use this as a chance to encourage each other to get those books read instead of always grabbing new ones and thus never making a dent in the physical and digital stacks we already have. It will also give us a chance to take a good look at our lists and see if there are ones we are no longer interested in. We will be posting on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and the last day of the month.

Previous Week's TBR Total: 3,825

Books Added to TBR This Week: 13

Books Removed from TBR This Week: 161

Currently Reading:

Books Finished This Week: 7

Books DNF-ed This Week: 1

Duplicates Removed: 0


New TBR Total: My calculation says 3,653. Goodreads says 3,668

This discrepancy is the biggest I have had since starting this challenge and I am unsure of which total to go with at this point. I will probably stick with the Goodreads number for the time being, only because I would hate to go with the lower number and then find out later that it was do to me forgetting that I added X number of books to my TBR or something stupid like that.

Is your TBR under control, or a hot mess like mine?

Happy Reading!


  1. 161 removed this week? that seems like a pretty good cleaning house. :)

    1. Yes!! I have started putting my settings on Goodreads to 'random' and finding books to delete that way. It is hard sometimes, but I know there are so many books I have added that I am just not interested in reading anymore. Sometimes I end up adding the book back to the TBR, but I am really trying to curb that also.

  2. My numbers finally match Goodreads but from now on I'll be sticking with my own counting! It's not as easy for you to do that with such a big difference in the totals though. Well done on another very productive week!

    1. Thank you, and good plan sticking to your numbers! I am seriously stumped as to how the gap is so huge this week. I have gone back over my numbers and can't find where there might be a mistake. I have a doc on my phone where I keep track of the data when am away from my laptop; otherwise I enter the info immediately on the draft for the upcoming post.

  3. I just added all novels by Marguerite Duras to my TBR. I am doomed.


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