Show Us Your TBR Pile

Today we’d like you to join us in revealing your TBR piles. Now, for those who don’t know, TBR is To Be Read. All of us write and read, but sometimes the reading stack grows…and grows…and grows…


Here are the books in my office…Books4

My basement has wall-to-wall shelves with books. I started sorting one day then had to replace them in a hurry for carpet cleaning. Yes, my shelves are upside down. My TBR books are now mixed in but the fun is closing my eyes and picking one. It’s an adventure….Books1

Then my research books are stacked by current project, and there are always more books to reference and read….Books2

And I’ll end with a section of favorite books that my cats knocked off the shelves to find a hiding spot. They are now a merry mix…but always an adventure when I open the pages and begin reading.Books3

Now take a moment and show me your TBR piles. Add your photo to the comment section below. And then visit Sharon WrayKay Hudson, Tamra Baumann, and Priscilla Oliveras who will share their TBR piles as well. Enjoy! šŸ™‚

  1. Good luck with the move Jean! I hope your new house will have lots of bookshelves for you to fill! (I see many of my favorites on your shelves, We have similar taste in books!)

  2. I know the feeling, Jean–I have bookshelves in every room but the kitchen (not much of a cook). Fortunately my cat is a couch potato, and I don’t catch her in the bookshelves very often.

  3. I was wondering if your cats had gotten into your books! What an impressive pile of books you have, Jean. I am very jealous! How long do you think it will take you to read them all?

    1. Sharon, I’ve read 80% of my books, some twice. My nonfiction I use as handy references. I’ve lived places without libraries :(, so buying books was the only way to research. šŸ™‚ As for reading my TBRs which are spread all over between nightstand, office and basement, only the wind knows. šŸ™‚ My cats had to pick the shelf I’d just organized, of course. It was the one time I chased them out and closed the door leaving them on the other side. Now it’s time to sort for a move and give up some of my collection.
