If you have been reading Girl Who Reads for a while you know for the last year and a half I have been trying to make a dent in my print editions review pile. Some of those books have been in the pile since around the time I start blogging in 2011.
I keep them in neat stacks under the coffee table in the living room as a daily reminder that I need to read them and for the most part it has really helped. It keeps me from wandering to the bookcases in other rooms when I need something to read.
I wish I had taken a picture of the pile when I started to really make a concerted effort to read through the print copies. I didn't, but I can tell you it is probably about half the size it was. I have been careful in the past year and half in accepting more print copies for review which has helped with the reduction.
I wish I could say that by the end of the year I would be through all of those books, but it will probably be another year. Some of the books in the pile were unsolicited review copies (they were just sent to me because I agreed to to do a tour or something) and a few more are books that I won.
I feel good about getting through these review copies, albeit slowly. I wish there was a better way to organize the ebooks that I have on my Nook for review. Because I'm pretty sure if I never agreed to review another book I have enough to keep me reading for at least a couple of years.
What is in your to be read pile? How do you keep it from toppling over? (Or do you just let it?)
I would love to see pictures of your TBR pile. Use the hashtag #TBRpile and I also have a thread started on our Facebook page.
