Musing Mondays - May 4

Musing Mondays (BIG) Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about your tbr pile…

How many books (roughly) are in your tbr pile? Is this in increasing number or does it stay stable? Do you ever experience tbr anxiety in the face of this pile? (question courtesy of Wendy)

I counted the books on my spreadsheet and I think the number is up to roughly 165 books. These are books that I either own or have in my possession. Yes, it's pitiful. I don't necessarily have anxiety about not getting everything read. I probably never will. The anxiety I feel is if the TBR pile gets low!

I love having the variety and the amount of choice. It's great to be able to look at my stacks and shelves and know how many possibilities there are. As for the numbers staying about the same. . . No way! I go to library book sales and usually come home with a dozen books. I am not reading them that fast so my pile just keeps increasing. I love it when I can take a book off of the spreadsheet though!

About 45 in my pile. Hundreds on the list. I would probably experience reading block anxiety more than a TBR one.
