E (ewillse) | 41 comments Hi all!
I finished the Pike's Peak Challenge of 12 books, so I'm setting my sights higher.
I'll be reading both paper and Kindle books to try to scale my TBR.
My TBR is currently at 223, down from 260.

(In addition to reading books from my TBR, both library books and owned books, I've been working to trim and delete books from my GR list that I don't think I'll read anytime soon.)

My goal is to read 12 more books from my TBR, and to get my TBR down to an even 200.
Although a big book conference is scheduled for the end of the month, and that's likely to boost my TBR exponentially. Whee!

The good news is that I got my TBR down to 215 by being ruthless about books I don't think I'll really read.

The bad news is that my TBR's about to double in size- three days at a librarians' conference full of galleys that sound all enticing.
Somebody save me from myself....

message 7: by E (new)

E (ewillse) | 41 comments As predicted, the librarian conference ballooned my Goodreads TBR up to something like 270! Eek!
On the plus side, still chugging away at previously owned books and/or books that have been on the Goodreads TBR for ages:
14.Sourdough
15. Gunslinger Girl
And currently reading Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend which is a library book, but has been on my TBR for eons.

E (ewillse) | 41 comments 20. Baby's in Black: Astrid Kirchherr, Stuart Sutcliffe, and The Beatles has been sitting on my shelf for ages.
I need more graphic novel nonfiction/memoir in my life.
