My TBR pile is getting out of control. At the moment I would estimate my tbr pile to be 300+ books and this is not counting the amount of books I have downloaded onto my kindle.
I find it impossible to go into a bookshop and buy just one book, this means if I do set foot in a bookshop it would not be unusual for me to walk back out with five or six books. The last month at my job has been very stressful (we are currently going through a change of management), this has meant that I have found myself spending more time in bookshops than what I would normally do. There is just something calming about being surrounded by books and people who appreciate them.
I have a fear that I am going to run out of books to read, I know that this would be impossible there is no way I could read 300+ books in a single day but to me this fear is real.
I love the fact that I practically have my own library and I have a wide genre range to choose from, however this is also negative as sometimes I can find myself spending hours trying to choose between books.
My bookshelves are bulging and my recent purchases are sitting on the floor as there is just no more room on my bookshelves, I love being surrounded by books but I think it is time for a tbr pile cull.
Do I really need to be hanging onto books that have been on my tbr pile for 2+years? Especially if I can never see myself actually reading them.
It is going to hard as I don’t like to let go off books, especially after I have finished reading them but the only way I am going to be able to bring new books in and discover new authors is through making room on my shelves.
I will keep you all updated on my progress, the tbr pile cull starts today!
