Shrinking the TBR Pile #1


Over time, my TBR pile has grown to epic proportions that I can just barely contain. (Luckily, I just got a new bookshelf that gives me so much more room to put everything.) My TBR pile has many amazing books that I would love to read, but since they’re all so great, I find it so hard to decide.

Soooo.

I have decided to number each book, then put pieces of paper with numbers on them in a bag, and every Sunday, I will pull out 3 numbers and those will be the books that I read that week. Hopefully. Of course, I won’t be confined to those 3 books, I could read more, in which case I would simply pull another number from the bag, and so on.

For this week, the numbers I pull are:
9, 23, and 95!

The corresponding books are:
9-Switch by Carol Snow
23-Awakening by Cate Tiernan
95-Old Magic by Marianne Curley





I can’t wait to read these books!
I’m really hoping this method will help me read more books and shrink my massive TBR pile. :)

If you would like to join in on this activity, leave the link in the Mr. Linky! I would very much appreciate it if you also linked back to me as the host of the meme. Have fun picking your books!

  1. I like your technique. Right now, I'm just grabbing the book that looks the most interesting to me at the moment I need a good book to read. I just wish I had more time to read all the wonderful books on my stacks.

  2. I think this is a great meme! I've done something similar in the past by myself, but I like your way better.

    I probably won't participate this week since I have six library books to read that I want to get done, but definitely next week I'll start.

    Thanks for the great meme!

  4. Good luck with Old Magic. I started it weeks ago and haven't been able to get through it haha. But Switch looks interesting.
