TBR Tuesday – Introduction

03 Mar

TBR Tuesday

I don’t know about everyone out there in bloglandia, but when I bought my first kindle in 2008 (yes, I’ve had one since almost inception), I went mad one-clicking on freebies (which I still do to an extent) and buying lots of books. Fast forward to 2015 (7.5ish years later) and I have a virtual TBR pile that likely resembles Mt Everest. At last count, my amazon account teetered somewhere in the 5000 book range (and that isn’t including books I bought from other ebook retailers etc).

I realized the severity of this problem when an author friend on Facebook posted an advertisement for a new book by an author she likes and in my digging I realized that I had not 1 but 2 books by her that I had bought back in 2012 and never read. So I need to do something about my “problem”.

The goal of TBR Tuesday will be to post short reviews of books that have been on my TBR pile for more than a year. This year date will be rolling (so for March 2015, any book purchased prior to March 1, 2014 will be game; for April, any book purchased prior to April 1, 2014 will be game etc).

My goal for 2015 is to clear off at least 20 books from the pile (but hopefully more). I hope others with similar piles join in 😉

    Count me in! I too have the same issue – old books from the beginning of my Kindle use (2009) – I have enough old sports books that I can do that as well. I am setting a goal of 20 as well – 10 sports books for the blog and 10 others just to clear them out. Awesome post and idea – thank you!
