TAG: The TBR Book Tag

tbr tag

This tag originally came from Rachel at A Perfection Called Books and Dana at Dana Square over a year ago but I’ve seen it floating around again lately and it looked like a fun one.

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Goodreads! I have two exclusive shelves “tbr wishlist” and “tbr owned” and that’s where I add all of my tbr books.  The “to read” shelf is mostly graphic novels (which I never purchase) to keep them separate from my wishlist books.

Here’s how I keep my shelves organized:

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

I don’t have an ereader (I read ebooks on my phone), so I usually only buy print books unless I’m reading something from NetGalley or I bought an ebook at a great price.  I have been considering purchasing an ereader more and more lately. If you have one, let me know what kind and if you like it! I’ve realized that I really dislike the e-ink readers, which is annoying since they’re so much cheaper :/   I wish I hadn’t given my old iPad to my mom because I LOVE that it scrolls in iBooks, and no other ereader has that capability as far as I know.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

I have a smallish bookcase next to my bed that doubles as a nightstand and I cycle out the books on it every month or two based on what I’m in the mood for.  I am a huge mood reader! I also keep a stack of books on top of that bookcase that is my more immediate TBR.   I am always reading way too many books at once, so when I get tired of something, I just pick up another book on my stack.

Here’s what is on my nightstand at the moment. The left stack is mostly books from my Secret Sister that I want to read ASAP, and the right stack is my TBR for the Anti Bullying Readathon next week.

A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover


Trial by Fire and Firewalker by Josephine Angelini

I had taken these off my TBR after seeing all the lackluster reviews, but as soon as I saw these beautiful UK covers I had to have them. I ordered them both and put the series back on my TBR.

A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading


Under the Dome by Stephen King

I received this in a trade last spring, and I had been planning to read it at the time. Since then, a friend has told me some really gory details about it, and since I’m not typically into horror, I’m not going to read it now.

These questions were a lot of fun. I’d love to see your answers if you do the tag!
