TBR Pile Reading Challenge
The only kind of shopping I really like these days is book shopping (and handbags, but only when I'm travelling), and as a result, piles of books in my house have increased to scary proportions. Since I keep all my books, that means they all get to stay in one, cosy, happy, crammed place.
So I've set myself a challenge to read at least 100 print books from my TBR pile before I buy any more books. (well this is not written in stone, because I might have to buy some books, otherwise I really could suffer from withdrawal symptoms). As the intention is to make sure I read volumes I have, the rule is one book = one volume. So for example, an omnibus edition with three books, only counts as one for this purpose. Since I do love keeping my book lists, I will keep my TBR Pile Reading Challenge list somewhere too, so you can see what print books I'm reading.
How big are your TBR piles? Do they get out of control? And when they do, what do you do about it?
