Ellese (FaithfulUmbrella) | 54 comments Alright ya'll, I need help. I have wayyy too many books that have GOT to be read soon. I included ARCs because they are in the TBR pile as well.

What I need from you is encouragement! Tell me about your TBR pile, what all have you got in there? Anything you bought and were so excited about it but never got around to reading it?? Do you just need to vent about the ever-growing stack of the literary bane of your existence? Ready, set, discuss!!!

I have hundreds on my TBR pile. Although, if some of yours are ARCs, I suggest reading those first.

message 3: by Ellese (new)

Ellese (FaithfulUmbrella) | 54 comments Yes...the problem is I have hundreds of books in my room that will most likely never get read...the ARCs I got from my bookstore so there is no hurry on them, but still annoying lol

My biggest problem is that I buy books witout reading them first, and then I think that I don't have to rush to read them because I own them. So they get stashed on my shelf and get all dusty:(

I will put an end to this!! I need to get around to reading all of my books.

Martha  (theshortone08) I've got ARRs and some ARCs plus library books plus about a thousand kindle books plus books I've won and haven't gotten around to reading yet.
No worries Ellese you're not the only one with a massive TBR list :)

ARC stands for Advanced Reading Copy.

Martha can answer what an ARR is, because I don't know myself:P

message 7: by Martha (new)

Martha  (theshortone08) ARR is Author Reader Requests. they don't have to be ARCs but they can be.
Basically is just an author asking for people read and review their books. :)
does that make sense?

message 8: by Ellese (new)

Ellese (FaithfulUmbrella) | 54 comments Oh I have never even heard of an ARR lol but that would be awesome! Martha, it is good to know I am not alone!

I dont have quite 400, maybe over a hundred just in my room but as for virtual ones I want to read? There are literally hundreds that I want to read soooo bad!! I will never get around to them all but I can give it a heroic try!

message 9: by Martha (new)

Agreed! I get so busy reading, working, and doing everything else that I even forget about goodreads! *gasp* I know...I'm working on it! Good luck with your TBR pile, I just started one today so hopefully it will be full steam ahead!
