Top Ten Tuesday: TBR Since Before Blogging
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic. I’m a huge fan of lists, so this meme is right up my alley!
This week’s topic is Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet. I started The Overstuffed Bookcase on January 14, 2012, and I thought there would be plenty of books on my physical shelves from before then that I still haven’t read, but I only found 10! Then I looked on my Goodreads To Read shelf and there are more than 250 books on there that I added before I started blogging. So I decided to just list the 10 on my physical shelves.
The Compound by S.A. Bodeen
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
Life As We Knew It, The Dead and the Gone, and This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
Writing this list has reminded me of three things: 1) I really need to read these books, 2) I need to cull my Goodreads shelves, and 3) The bookish/blogging community is the direct cause of my Goodreads shelves becoming 8 times the size of what they were before I started blogging. Yeah, I definitely need to cull my Goodreads shelves. And probably my physical shelves, too.
So what books do you still have sitting on your shelf, waiting to be read, from before you started blogging?Let me know, or leave a link to your TTT in the comments, and I’ll try to stop by your blog!
