I understand. I have a list of TBR that sits next to me and I don't have on my Goodreads TBR. It is smaller. It is my not sure, need to look at reviews list or just found out about. I sometimes feel that same "book that is not already there and I don't really want to do that." so I understand 100% what you are saying. Thing is, this site has me adding things to both list all the time so I don't feel it as often as much, a list added to anytime, any day is still a list.

So if you read it and love it, I will most likely add it to my list. I love stories of journeys.
