Saar The Book owl | 1968 comments The Book Pledge Challenge is going good so far, but the rest of it...Not all of my books are listed yet.


Saar The Book owl | 1968 comments The Book Pledge Challenge is finished.

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7667 comments Congrats on finishing your pledge! Well done :)


Saar The Book owl | 1968 comments Thank you, Siobhan. Never thought that it would go so quick.


Saar The Book owl | 1968 comments Just added some titles. Not complete yet.


message 8: by Niki Hawkes, I made it past GOTM... barely (new)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7223 comments Mod
I'm eager to see what it'll look like when you're done putting it together.


Saar The Book owl | 1968 comments I think I will have a heart - attack of actualy seeing a list of so many books that I own and that I haven't read not that many of them. I keep going to the library and occasionally buying the books that I really want, but my TBR - list keeps on growing.


Saar The Book owl | 1968 comments No, I bought a pile of books today! I need to retire or clone myself to read them all!


message 11: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I just got a new shelf and organized most of my unread books together. It's scary to see them in rows like that! I only have around 100, but that's a lot.

Good luck getting through some of yours! I hope the ones you picked up today are good ones. :)


Saar The Book owl | 1968 comments I'm still counting them and I'm over 110 now. They keep on coming out of the moving boxes. We've moved almost 2 years ago to our new house, but still unpacking. That's the only moment that I muttered that I had to many books: when I was packing and unpacking :p
How do you organise your books? Do you have a system for it?
The ones from today were 6 books of Malazan of the Fallen, so that was a pretty good choice!


message 13: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments Yeah, moving with books is not the greatest. I don't have much of a system. It just depends on how I feel at any moment. Some of my unread books that are signed are on my main shelf, where I keep favorite books/authors. The rest are tossed on a separate shelf.


Saar The Book owl | 1968 comments I keep adding instead of reading more. I'm sure that's not the way it works, haha!

Oh, I think that's exactly the way it works 😂
Not the way it should work, but the way it mostly work out in the end!
