Booking Through Thursday: TBR

I missed BTT last week but here's my answer to this weeks question:

Do you keep all your unread books together, like books in a waiting room? Or are they scattered throughout your shelves, mingling like party-goers waiting for the host to come along?

I am very particular about this, all of my TBR books are kept separately on the top shelf of my favourite bookcase. I like to see what I have to choose from and as this bookcase is at the top of my stairs, I tend to pass it several times a day, so this gives me plenty of time to choose which book will be next. I think that if I didn't put all of my TBR books in one place then I would forget what I had bought and then they would just be replaced by even more! What about you?

My bookshelves are filled to the brim so I'm now stacking my TBR books at a corner of our storage room, LOL.

I see my unread books several times a day too - well most times of the day as they're in most rooms of the house!

oops my comment went too quickly!

I do forget what I've got waiting to be read - so I have to keep looking at them -LOL. Oh and I keep buying more!

Dot said...

BookPlease- I have the same problem of buying more!!

I don't have a favourite bookcase - I only have the one! I generally shift the older TBR to the bookcase since I like the newer ones to be near me - one of the many strange behaviours of a bibliophile. :-)

I wish I could be so ordered, but sadly I'm not.

Scatter Books

:) That's neat! I select books you know and keep it on my desk... go through them and put the one's back that I am not going to read :)
I really like to focus on one book! but then end with 2-3 at one time :)

Thank for coming!
Happy Thursday!

Just thought I'd mention I've read 'The forgotten garden' and loved it!

Julia said...

Me too, I need to stack up mine together into pile or else I forget what books I buy. And if it scarring every-where I can't find the books I want to read than :)

Happy BTTs and weekend ahead!

ya same here, If I dont keep all my TBR at one place I kind of forget I even have them :) I have discover a few forgotten gems accidentally kept in my Read pile.

Dot said...

Violet- It's nice when that happens isn't it! Happy BTT!

Shari said...

I like to open my cupboard every day and review my TBR titles. They don't stay sorted for very long though!

Jo said...

Too mny books and not enough space to have them all on shelves! Read are shelved and unread are boxed. Just means I have to buy more boxes as I buy more books!

Schatzi said...

In an ideal world, my books would all be in one place, but I don't think I would ever separate the unreads from the reads.

Novroz said...

I tried hard not to add more unread books so that I can keep all the books in perfect order based on its writer and genre

That's funny how everyone is a little different. Mine are scattered in my bookcases.. here's my answer at The Burton Review

Nicole said...

I have more books that I haven't yet read than I do books that I have read, so this isn't a particular problem for me.

okbolover said...

you mean you only have that top shelf for your TBR pile? that's it? I wish I was that organized :)

JoAnn said...

Now that's a great system! Mine are all together....mostly.
