It's unstoppable. This week alone, I've probably added close to thirty just from the great reviews I've found on BL.

Yes, yes, it is a constant struggle.

That's what it boils down to, isn't it? That is it in one simple equation. They should put that as a disclaimer somewhere.

I can't buy one book. I swear I can hear it screaming in fear!

Same thing is happening with me, I get rid of one and add three.

...yes, and it's a mystery how it happens. It's almost like like it's an unconscious act of adding them, and you don't realise until later.

I can't seem to get my digital TBR down past 198 these days. And that's just ebooks I own. And that's not counting the physical books piled around me. But I don't have a problem. Nope, no problems here, unless you count the deplorable lack of serviceable bookcases (hence the piles).

Only 198?
Amateur.
We won't discuss the size of my digital TBR.

My physical is ( I think ) 3.
But that's because MIL left one the last time she was here.

Yeah, I know, it's a sad, underachieving number, but I've sworn off freebies by living/unknown (to me)/self-pub authors and I can't afford to go pro. ;)

I'm not even looking at my ebooks. Way too scared. I prefer this state of denial until I've worked on the piles of physical books.

Actually, I think getting through the TBR is a fantasy.
It's just not gonna happen.

...and back to the Kafkaesque nightmare. I'll still keep trying. In a way it's a bookish experiment for this year to see if monthly pics will act as motivation.

Did you blunder into a huge book flea market or did it grow slowly? My TBR is at the moment at 234 an it is physically cause I don't read eBooks :o maybe I will never read them all till I die :D

It looks like a single book haul in a second hand shop, doesn't it? But no, earlier last month I took action to reduce my unread physical books and (com)piled a selection of books that I would tackle this year. If I read one that is on the shelf but not on the pile, I get to move one off the pile and onto the shelf. Any new acquisitions are going on the pile.

Don't give up hope of reading all your TBRs!

I can actually hear you say that - with the appropriate voice, of course. ;)

Thank you! I like them too.
