Shrinking the TBR Pile #3

Sorry that it's a little late in the day. *blushes*


Over time, my TBR pile has grown to epic proportions that I can just barely contain. It 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.

If you are participating, you don't need to pull 3 books. You can pull as many as you want: 1 book, 4 books. However many you like.

Last week I pulled the books Nightshade by Andrea Cremer, Gamer Girl by Mari Mancussi, and The Eternal Kiss by various authors. I'm still in the process of reading Nightshade, but Gamer Girl and The Eternal Kiss go back into my TBR pile and back into the drawing.

This week, the numbers I pulled are:
19, 55, and 76

The corresponding books are:
The Goblin Wood by Hilari Bell

The Last Days by Scott Westerfeld

Eragon by Christopher Paolini

What books did you guys pick? Link to them in the Linky!

  1. That's a good idea! For me, I get most of my books from the library and pick which to read next based on when I'm going to have to return them!

  2. Really loved Eragon Ashley! I hope you get a chance to read it. I bet Nightshade is going well, I've heard great things about it =)

  3. What a great idea. I'm sure lots of people have this problem (I know I do) and this is certainly one way of dealing with it. Good luck with the shrinking of your pile.

  4. This is a GREAT idea! I will probably start doing this in December or maybe make it part of my New Year's resolutions :)
