The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer at Crazy For Books in March 2010 and ended in December 2012. Billy at Rambling of a Coffee Addicted Writer didn’t want it to end and took over in February 2013, lucky for us. The hop starts every Friday and ends on Thursdays the following week with weekly prompts. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
For This Week:
“Do you think you will ever read every book in your TBR (to-be-read) stack?”
I’d like to hope so but I won’t give myself a hard time if I don’t. I have 639 books in my to-read shelf on Goodreads and I’ve only started adding to my pile in March 2013. To some people I know, that’s nothing compared to their TBR stack, but for casual readers, that might be quite overwhelming.
I’ve added more than 800 books in total to my Gooreads bookshelf just in the past year and I’ve only read just a bit over 140. Let’s say I only add 500 more books to my to-read pile this year and my goal in 2014 for books to read is 150, I’ll still add more books to my to-read pile than the total books I’ll read this year…and I don’t see book publishing slowing down anytime soon so I’ll just keep on adding more and more new books I want to read.
If you look at your TBR stack more as a list-that-you-turn-to-when-you-don’t-know-what-to-read-next than as a list-of-book-i-have-to-read, then it’s really not overwhelming anymore and it actually helps you decide what to read next when you’re stuck.
For The Readers: How overwhelming is your TBR stack? Do you think you will ever read every book on there? Post the link to your own Book Blogger Hop for this week or just share your thoughts below.
