TGIF (2): To Be Read

TGIF at GReads is a feature by the fabulous Ginger, who asks us a fun question to answer every week. It's always a joy to be a part of this, and I think everyone certainly should try it out!

How big is your pile? Which book keeps getting pushed down the stack, but you keep meaning to read it?

I've always been a bit of a bookaholic; I have this habit of picking up way too many books.  So it's probably not surprising that, honestly, my pile of books to be read is INSANE. I keep telling myself that I can't/shouldn't/won't pick up any more books, but it's so difficult not to when (1) I visit bookstores quite often and there's always a pretty cover that grabs my attention and (2) I have way too many devices to read on aside from my actual books - my Kindle and my iPad.

  3. I read on my iPad too and I'm always switching from one app to the other to read all my ebooks. It's insane!

  4. I have 5 apps on the iPad that I switch between *lol* And the bulk of my TBR pile is there, so I couldn't really do a picture either.

  6. I completely understand "insane" TBR piles. I am a librarian so think about all the books that end up on my virtual "pile" plus every day new ones jump on. Ha!

    1. Oh my goodness. I bet you have a ton of books on your TBR! I think I'd be borrowing obsessively if I were a librarian.

  7. You are so right! I always yell at myself every time I enter a bookstore but afterwards I try and tell myself it is okay because the books I bought were OBVIOUSLY dying for me to pick them up!

    1. YES. I always justify it by saying that I'm supporting an author or the publishing industry!

  8. I think insane is the best way to describe our To-Be-Read piles. Honestly, if someone ever proved that reading too many books was harmful, we would all get thrown into some rehab for books program.

    1. I bet that would be an interesting place, though just thinking about it has me horrified at the idea we'd be limited when it comes to reading material!
