So this week, I am curious about those gigantic TBR piles which readers tend to accumulate. Please share with us your habits, tendencies or obsessions when it comes to hoarding behavior.
- Post a photo (or two or three) of your books to-be-read
- Share your buying or book accumulating habits – how bad of a problem do YOU have?!?!?
- Do you keep all the books you’ve read, or do you give them away or sell them?
- Can you walk past a bookstore and not go in? If you go in, do you impulsively purchase?
Don’t let these questions restrict you…tell us all about your hoarding issues, if only to make the rest of us feel better!
I don’t think I have a problem. I know, everybody says that they are alright, but when it comes to hoarding books, I’m good. Sort of. Just a bit erratic and random.
I buy books when I see them and like them, planning to read them soon and then I don’t. On the other hand I buy books and read them right away. It all depends on the book and my mood.
I have no TBR pile, some books are next to my bed, some are on one book shelf, some are on another one. I’m not that organized when it comes to books, I’m afraid. Sometimes I want to read a book and can’t find it. So, maybe I do have a problem after all.
When I see a book store I usually go in. Just to have a look around, not necessarily to buy something.
I used to keep all the books I’ve read, but recently we started to have a severe problem with space. So, now I only keep fiction books I know I might want to re-read again. Others I swap. This month I also started to give away books here on the blog, which I want to keep doing regularly. I have two moving boxes full of books I want to get rid of right now and there are more to come. Somehow though our shelves look just as crowded as they did before. I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me, it seems.
