Author Michelle Hauf has a blog post about TBR Piles, and it got me to thinking. I have somewhere around 2000 or more books in my TBR piles, they are everywhere. I have them on bookshelves, in totes(the hard ones not the cloth ones) although I have some in those as well. But they are everywhere. I have a LOT stored in a grain bin in totes and well also in suitcases because we moved and I ran out of totes and hate cardboard boxes so used suitcases/duffle bags. Some of these I’ve had for years, in fact a few I know I’ve had since 2001 and have never read. I’m not even sure I’d want to read them now, but then I’m a mood reader, so what doesn’t interest me today may interest me next week. So I hate to get rid of any of my unread books for just that reason. It’s also why I will keep a book I start but can’t get into, because I may like it more next week or the next.

And I add a LOT more than I read. I read as fast as I can but still I read a fewer books than I buy. Do you do this? What does your TBR pile look like? Do you read all the books you have before buying new?

I’d love to know what your piles look like.
