Book Tags #7: The To Be Read Tag

So you know how everybody and their dog has this seemingly endless list of books that they swear they’re going to get to someday? Yes, well, this TBR-tag is completely about that. I came across it on the Books in her Head blog. And because my TBR on Goodreads is currently basically ridiculous – I just couldn’t not do it!

the-tbr-to-be-read-tag

 

1. How do you keep track of your tbr pile?

Goodreads – obviously! Although I feel like the fact that I keep my TBR there, might also be why it’s that long! It’s so easy to just add a gazillion books because the resume sounds like it might just be fun. And then suddenly your TBR is over a thousand books and you have to get realy about removing some of them and it’s just utterly painful and…

Woops.

Sorry, I got a bit too involved there :p

2. Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

In an ideal world, it would be entirely print. In reality though, I’ve taken to reading the e-book first (because it’s so. much. cheaper.) and then, if I end up actually liking the book, I try to get it in print as well 🙂

3. A book that’s been on your TBR-list the longest?

I had to check my Goodreads for this one, but as I suspected, it’s Anne of Green Gables. I read and loved the first couple of books from that series, but somehow I never actually got much further than that!

(Also known as: the reason I now, finally, added them to my fall and winter-tbr 🙂 )

4. A book you recently added to your tbr?

Apparently, that would be Love and other Theories, by Alexis Bass.

Quite frankly, I don’t even remember actually adding this one to my TBR? What I said for the first question is definitely true here!

5. A book that is on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?

I don’t really have a reply for this one? I think because I know I’m always just going to read them as an e-book first (and as such, the cover doesn’t really matter that much) I’ve just sort of taken to not paying attention to it all that much 🙂

6. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?

As I already said, I did a huge purge of my TBR a while back, and I actually got rid of those books then.

Let’s be real, it might look really good that I’m totally planning on reading that one really difficult classic, but my TBR is long and scary enough without adding those books to it 🙂

7. An unpublished book on your TBR that you are excited for?

ALWAYS the newest Cathy Kelly or Jill Mansell – as I mentioned in my favourite chicklit-post: I love all of their work.

Other than that, probably just the sequel to The Next Together – although I’m not entirely sure whether it hasn’t come out already?

8. A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you?

Probably 1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell – now, I’m not saying that everybody has read these, but still…

A lot of people have, and I do really want to read them…

9. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?

I honestly can’t really think of one…

Usually, if a lot of people are recommending the same book to me, I make it a point to read it as quickly as possible 🙂

10. A book on your TBR that you are dying to read?

Again: the newest Cathy Kelly and Jill Mansell. Other than that – all the Christmas ones!

11. How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

As of my writing this post, 511. However, I did just purge it – and also, I might add like 100 tomorrow.

Too many, either way 🙂

So, there you have it, my replies to the TBR-tag! If you haven’t done this one yet, feel free to now consider yourself tagged!

(And be sure to let me know below if you have done it! I would love to read your replies!)
