HA! No, I don’t have fifty thousand books on my physical TBR pile, but I do have around 110, which is you know, a shitload of books.
See, I’m a fifteen year old high school girl with no job. My parents do pay for my books since I don’t get allowance. I have around 300+ physical books total (a mix of paperbacks and hardbacks), so that means I read 2 out of every 3 physical books that I purchase. (Don’t even get me started on my eBooks.)
Normally, that number would seem pretty decent, but lately I’ve been thinking about how it seems like such a waste of good money if I don’t read (or even touch) some of my physical books! They look gorgeous on my shelf and all, but these books were made to be read, and not to be just on display.
This summer (March-May), I plan to do two things:
- Tackle my TBR pile. I want to read at least FIFTEEN books from my physical TBR pile in those three months. I already have a list of physical books I have to read then, including some titles I DNFed but wanted to give another shot to, like Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Of course I’ll read more during the rest of the year.
- Sell/give away the books I don’t want to read. I have a few titles (some popular ones and others not so much) that I would love to find new homes for! I might post them here if you guys are interested. (PH only, most likely. And my mom will most likely suggest that I sell them.)
Any other tips you can share? How are your physical TBR piles looking?
