TBR List

This is my To-Be-Read list. This is a list of books that I’ve discovered and want to read. There are 4 categories:

1) On My Shelf – pretty simple, these are books that I currently have in my possession that I never got around to reading.

2) On My Mind – these are books that I’ve seen online or in the book store that caught my attention, but I haven’t purchased it/checked it out yet.

3) On the Edge – these are books that I’m nervous to read, for one reason or another, but I feel like I should.

4) On Repeat – these are books that I’ve read in the past, most likely from my school years, that I haven’t read in a long time and I want to read them again.

So, let’s see how big this list gets. I’m not going to delete any of the books I eventually read. I’m just going to cross them out like so. This way I get to see how much of my TBR list actually gets read. Have any suggestions? I’ll check them out, just leave me a comment. No Harry Potter or Twilight (or vampires in general), ok… I’m just not into it.

  1. Interesting! I have some of the same kinds of lists… but they’re named differently. My “Friday Finds” event is basically my “on my mind” list… they’re mostly books I’ve found out about but don’t yet own, or haven’t yet read (but want to read!). And, my “Stretch Yourself” personal (and perpetual/ongoing) challenge is my “on the edge” list… full of books that are “challenging” to me, or scare me a little. ;)

    And, of course, there’s my ever-growing TBR list…which my Friday Finds adds to, every week, making it definitely impossible to ever get all of the books on that list read in my lifetime! :P

    Thanks for the link over to your blog — I’ll be bookmarking it so I can poke back in from time to time. Seems we share some common interests! :D

    Yeah, my TBR definitely keeps growing, and to be honest I haven’t even updated as often as I should. I’ve participated in your Friday Finds (though I never have as many as you do… wow!), Teaser Tuesdays, and I’ve done a couple of Musing Mondays. I’ve noticed from your Friday Finds that we have some similar interests. I’ve added some of your Friday Finds to my TBR in the past.

    Thanks for stopping by!
