Follow Friday (10)


Question of the Week: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

I wish my books were sitting neatly on a shelf.  They are in piles and in boxes.  But if I had to make a guess, I would say that I have at least 100 books.

This is a big part of the reason I have set the TBR Intervention as one of my big new years resolutions for 2012.  I want to get some of the books I have on hand cleared out (maybe then I can justify buying more books?)

I would also like to finally finish some of the series that I have started, that I liked, but that I have not been able finish:







Do you have any series that you started and liked but have not finished the books that are out?  If you have read the series above, which one would you recommend I finish first?

  2. I have started a ton of series, and some of them I am three to four books behind. I always feel like they are sitting around going, 'what about me?'

  7. I have a lot of boxed up books, too, so I can definitely relate. I have a few series I have started, and I've gotten behind on as well.

  8. @Lynsey You are right...it is bad enough for an intervention!

    @Beth Exactly...they are all calling to me saying "why not me?"

    @Sidne I am so jealous that you only have 23 books on your shelf! That is my TBR intervention dream!

    @Jessica I feel such a sense of accomplishment when I finish one book on my TBR pile. :)

    @Melliane I know--and the library is not helping!

    @Kary thank you for following!

    @Jennifer I really want to get caught up on the series!

  10. My TBR pile is not that big, but I have a lot of series I need to finish up. These days I'm thrilled to find a standalone book!

  11. I am with you on reading the books I have this year!

  12. @aLmYbNeNr Join us in our intervention. You will feel so much better once you do!

    @Jen I love standalone books...or even better books like Sarah Dessen where the characters may intertwine but if you haven't read the books before you aren't missing big aspects of the story!

  13. @Rebecca It has been great because I figured out why I got the books--usually because someone told me it was awesome and they were right!

  16. @Alison It would be more accurate to say start Vampire Academy. I am that far behind! :)

    @Kah I am so glad to know I am not alone in needing to read these series. :)

  19. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I plan on focusing more on my already owned books this year too, but I can't seem to stop buying new ones. I need to join a book buyers anonymous!

  20. @Pawing Through Books: I am sure book buyers anonymous would have a lot of members in a very short period of time. :)
