Writer Wednesdays- Show us your TBR pile!

Posted Jan 13 2016, 1:00 am in



Hi All,

Today for our Writer Wednesdays post we are showing our TBR (to be read) piles. Here is mine:





I read on both my Kindle Voyager and my iPad. However, this “stack” is deceptive. While very neat and organized, I just counted how many books I have brought from author friends and my auto-buy authors.  I have a staggering 88 books I have not read/ finished! That’s crazypants!  Can you imagine what that would look like if those were all printed books? I could make a fort out of that many stories.

I am going to add one thing to my New Year’s resolutions: No more 1-clicking books until I finish at least half of the ones on my Kindle!!! :0)


How about you? What does your TBR pile look like?


Check out what the other writers shared about holiday décor…

    I am so jealous. Look how neat and clean and organized your pile is while I sleep next to a pile I’m afraid will fall on me while I sleep! My DH is always threatening to dump all of my books because they’re a fire hazard. LOL. He’d love it if I went completely digital. But I’m a librarian. I’m just not ready to do that yet. 🙂

    • Sharon, it took a lot of effort, but because I too had a TBR pile that threatened physical harm, I took the plunge into digital and now I’m glad I did!
      Recently my 91 year old aunt, also a former librarian, came for a visit and when I showed her my kindle she shook her head and said, “Nope. I love your books Tammy, but I won’t read them unless I can hold, smell and feel them in my hands.” LOL So of course, she always gets one of the early copies my publisher sends. :0)

    I hesitated to mention my Nook and Kindle, but they’re on the bedside because my DH bought them so I could read at night with the lights off..lol. I love books in all shapes and sizes, color and textured pages and book covers. The explosion of images is wonderful. 🙂 So, while I have more than 1000 books, giving up any one is so difficult. Maybe, I’ll keep them and organize with Sharon’s help. 🙂

    • Yes, it seems people are either geared for digital or not. Growing up a military kid and having to donate so many toys and books each time we moved because our family had a weight limit, made it easier for me to go to digital. Giving away my cherished books a kid was painful. Now I get to keep them all in the cloud forever!

    Tammy, that photo is clear–you have 690 items in the cloud. If you only have 88 unread, you’re way ahead of me. BTW, I just bought a Voyage (replacing a five-year-old keyboard Kindle) and have about 350 items in the cloud. I’m not even going to hazard a guess as to how many are yet unread.

    • Kay, I had a Kindle the first year they came out and have had every version since because I am a technology freak. I have given all of my old kindles to family and friends. This Voyager was actually a gift from my publisher for participating in the Kindle First program. And I love it! (I should confess that I do have a bookcase filled with autographed books by my favorite authors. It started with my first Nora and grew from there. ;0)
