Musing Monday, December 16, 2013

Musing Mondays is sponsored by Should Be Reading and asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
 • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
 • What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
 • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

How many of you just keep adding to your TBR pile.  I keep saying that I will not order any more books until I have read all from my previous order.  It just does not work for me.  My latest order arrived last Friday and I still had two books unread from my previous order.  Most of the books on any of my orders are pre-orders and are placed as much as a month ahead of release.  I still keep adding to the pile.  Part of the problem are the books I get for review.  I read them first and put of the others on hold.  I do think this is a minor problem in a world with some very big problems that need to be solved.


  1. I keep adding to my tbr pile. the good thing about it is I don't have money to buy books, but I do got a couple of books from the library and I keep putting more on hold.

  2. I thought that if I wasn't buying them, it wouldn't be a problem...(review books). Ha-ha!

    And I also preorder a lot of books...for my Kindle, which I have convinced myself isn't a shelving problem.

    I think bookaholics will find a way to add books!


  3. Oh yes, I don't even know how I'm going to get through my TBR pile...

  4. I've convinced myself that having a never ending TBR pile is a good problem to have! I'd much rather have lots to choose from, rather than have nothing to read next.

  5. I think lots of us share your problem but I say there isn't a better problem to have ;-)
