Mysteriously, several piles of unread books have appeared here - conservation of unread book piles?

Very likely! :D

Someone should do some research on that and formulate a law about it.

Hey, it is shrinking! A phenomenon I have never seen!
BrokenTune 5 months ago
Me neither, actually. I'm still shocked.

You're making the rest of us look bad here - how dare your TBR shrink? ;-)

Seriously though, impressive results!

Thanks. I guess I have found a system that it working for me.

WOW! I'm impressed. My pile just gets bigger even though I've cut back on buying (only 2 books this month) and I've donated about 10 books this month.

Wow. You only bought 2? My physical TBR is getting smaller, but I still have the kindle to despair over.

2 paperbacks. The stuff on the e-reader is something else.

You are the Mount TBR slayer! Well done.

Haha. Slayer. Never heard that in connection with Mt. TBR before.

The pile on the left is quite a bit shorter! Well done!

Yeah, they all are really but the one on the left is the most drastic visually.
The pile on the right seems to be tipping over...careful. Don't damage the spines!

It's all safe. It only looks that way in the original January picture, really, but even then the pile was carefully supported by the wall. There has been some engineering effort in this stacking. ;)
That's some impressive shrinkage ...

Thanks. With the bingo, I only really have August, November, and maybe half of December (before the Christmas reads start) to try and finish these.
Another 35 books or so to go? (Maybe you can work some of them into the bingo?)

Mythos will get amnestied because I want to finish Holmes before starting another Fry read/narration and we're scheduled to finish Holmes by the end end of the year (Dec 21st).

Of the ones left on Mt. TBR, only The Blank Wall, Magic and Mystery in Tibet, and potentially Fatal Passage (that is, if being trapped in ice qualifies as "shipwrecked") would work for the bingo.

But... I'm going to substitute one book in the pile for another bingo book on my shelf, potentially take off the last King book (Green Grass, Running Water), Die Aula is a re-read (so I could take that one off) and I have to see if I want to learn more about Cole Porter after finishing the combined Cole/Noel bio.

So, there are some options here.
Good! I'd have thought "Mythos" would work for the bingo as well (e.g., "Cryptozoologist") -- but I can totally see the reasoning behind quarantaining it.
