Book Blogger Hop 6/17-6/20

Book Blogger Hop

The blog hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books

This week's question...

“How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”

My answer...

I always hate this question because it's so embarrassing for me. I have 10,000+ physical books and now I'm even hoarding books on my Nook. I have 1200 on my Nook to read. I'm a certified book hoarder...bookaholic...whatever you want to call me.

The Nook books are so much because most of them are freebies. As soon as I see something I'm interested in is free, I get it. They might not always be free, so you have to get them while you can. The physical books got out of hand when I joined the online world in the early 1990's. I'd hear so many great recommendations and then I "met" so many great authors online, I just kept adding to my TBR. I know I won't get around to reading them all in my lifetime, but I do so love collecting. I guess there are worse addictions to have in this life than being addicted to books :)

What does your TBR look like?

  1. Wow, 10,000 books? Really? And those are all unread? I mean, I have a TON of books. Ok maybe not because I want to build a library in my house. But I have a lot. I can't imagine having 10,000 unread books hehe. Or read and unread. I'm jealous of your books! haha.

  2. I think a book addiction is a positive thing, but then again, I am biased, I have one too :) Wow, 10,000 books, I am jealous! I have had to force myself to only keep the books I think I will reread multiple times. The local library makes this hard by selling used books at cheap prices and do they ever pile up and multiply... Free books are virtually irresistible!

  4. OMG! I cannot even physically imagine this! I thought mine were bad at 166 (when I started my "journey through the TBRs blog").

    And you've been in the online community since the 1990s? I could learn a lot from you! the pop-up cats!


  5. Hello! Stopping by from the Hop. 10 000 physical books?? And none of them have been read? How is that embarrassing?! :D New follower on the blog and Twitter. My HOP is here!

  6. I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

    Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

    Stressful, right?


    Hop on over to my blog - and find out why.

  7. Your TBR pile intimidates me! I, too, tend to hoard books and download interesting freebies just because they are free. There is nothing wrong with having a bountiful book collection. And you are right, there are definitely worse things to hoard or spend your money on! Happy reading!
