Rhonda | 278 comments Rhonda's Over a Year TBR List:

** COMPLETE**

Note: I completely reorganized my shelves last year (around March, I think), so the date added is not necessarily accurate for how long it's been on my TBR.

1. Watership Down by Richard Adams - on TBR since 2014
2. The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson - on since TBR since 2016
3. The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery - on TBR since 2014
4. The Jane Austen Handbook by Margaret Sullivan (purchased April 2017, read May 2018)
5. My Own Miraculous by Joshilyn Jackson (I've owned this for years, bought on my Nook, which I haven't used for at least 2 years.)

Hi Sam, you have Stranger in a Strange Land under Sci-Fi, too. Which one do you want to use?

Rebecca Douglass (rdouglass) | 379 comments Does my mental TBR list count? I've been working on finishing some series I started years ago, but I never added the books.

Actually, I see I added the book I'm thinking of on Feb. 23 last year. And finished it on Feb. 20 this year. So I guess that doesn't count, though I read the first in the series in 2013 :(

Lol, I don't have time to be so critical! If you added it last Feb and read it this Feb, count it. We trust you, Rebecca!

Thanks! I don't always add books that I KNOW I want to read--I don't need a list for those :)

I know that I have some of my TBR books listed on Goodreads but some are on a list on paper and others are sitting in a stack on my table.

Oh snap, sorry about that! I’ll move it up and delete the second comment. Thanks for pointing it out :)

Jell-O Shots I’ve just joined Goodreads so I don’t have anything on my TBR list that’s been on there for over year. Is it alright if I add books that have been on my mental TBR list?

Hi Jello, welcome! We'll make an exception for new GR members for this. We trust that you're going to be honest. Enjoy!


message 27: by Connie (new)

Connie Cote | 438 comments For us "old" GR members, can we use books even if they aren't on the GR Want to Read list? I have a written list in my reading journal and don't always add them to GR. Sometimes I am still "old school"!

We'll have to trust each other on this one. If you say you've had it on your personal TBR, wherever you may keep it, we'll allow it.
