No Book Buying Challenge 2015 – January update: Post/share a picture or list of your TBR pile(s).
As you know, we are co-hosting the Show Your Shelves Some Love a No Book Buying Challenge. You can also review the details of the post on the “No Book Buying Challenge” page from the menu above. Now the challenge has officially kicked off and we are sharing our TBR piles, lists, shelves, rooms, you know wherever you store your books.
I have piles of unread books in my library and in my bedroom. In fact, in my bedroom, I have some unread books stuffed inside of my ottoman, (so that my dog does not bother them) I also have a small media shelf with unread books in the closet, and there are various unread books mixed in with all of my other books in my home library. I would like to arrange the books by unread, and read, but right now, mine are mostly arranged by genre. That being said, I have challenged myself to read 30 books for 2015. I am working full time and teaching full time for this spring and I really do not have a lot of time on my hands, so I am cutting back the reading goal. I started a shelf on goodreads for the books I plan to read for this challenge. I have two shelves: TBR Shelf Love and a READ Shelf Love.
I can’t say that I really have a specific shelf in my library for unread books, since I have it organized by genre and author, so I can’t quite share a photo. There are so many books I haven’t read, but only recently I started a shelf on Goodreads to track new book purchases and those books that I own and really need to read soon. My Goodreads “to read soon” bookshelf has hundreds of books on it!!!!It is really quite dangerous. But hopefully with this challenge I’ll at least make a dent in it.
I set up a new Goodreads shelf for this challenge:
This shelf has all of my To Be Read books that I own. And I would like to say, I found it really helpful to set this shelf up. While I was reviewing all of my ebooks, I found a bunch that I had purchased, but had no recollection of actually owning. And, the shelf has stopped me from buying books I already own more than once in the past month. I’ve also added a shelf for completed books. I’ll be able to track the books I’ve read more easily in one shelf.
