This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl is a freebie and I’ve decided to address the books that have been on my TBR pile the longest.
My To-Be-Read (TBR) pile is extensive! I could do a quick calculation of how many books I own that I have not yet read but I would be too embarrassed to share the number. Sometimes I feel guilty but otherwise I try to tell myself that book reading and book buying are two separate hobbies!
These are the books I have been hanging onto the longest without reading them. Not included are a few I no longer have any intention of reading. Also excluded are a number of books I have scheduled to read in the next year or two. Instead, this is a list of the books that at the time of writing have fallen through the cracks – I have owned them for years, still hope to read them, but have no immediate plans to.
