4/12/2022 What book has been sitting on your TBR pile the longest?



Some do define tbr in different ways, I will only think of it as those books I own. Oh and I do not count kindle freebies, those are old as hell.




But like years ago Karen at For what it's worth went through her books and I decided to do the same. I had over 200 unread ones, I dnfed a LOT. I gave away a lot. I read a lot. It was years of focusing on my old books.




Looking at my shelves it seems The black jewels trilogy by Anne Bishop is my oldest. I tried it like a page years ago, gave up and meant to try again. One day! And it seems I have some books from 2016. Work in progress.






4/19/2022 How did you choose your blogging platform?


4/26/2022 Do you still own any books/comics/toys/memorabilia from when you were a kid?

5/31/2022 Do you request ARCs? Why or why not?

  1. I also only count books I own towards my TBR. There are dozens of books I mark "want to read," because someone recommended or I liked the cover, etc. But unless I own it, it doesn't count.

    1. How can they count when you do not have them, exactly. So no I do not count that book from 20 years ago

  2. There's a whole bunch! I think I would have to go to Goodreads to check...

  3. I have had some books on my Kindle since I bought the device. It's pretty common for me to buy books years before I get around to reading them.

  4. You did great purging your shelves a little while back. I'm doing better at reading my older books, but not nearly what I need to be. I'm pretty sure a freebie is my oldest TBR book, too.

  6. Oh man, I'm not sure. I have that Anne Bishop series on my TBR, but I haven't bought yet. I was just on Jen's page where she mentioned Naomi Novik, I have that series on my list too. I think it might be the oldest (or at least one of the oldest) audiobooks on my phone that I haven't listened to yet. One day.

  7. Yeah when answering this question I was thinking of the books I own too. I have want to read books that I don't own, but for me it really counts as TBR once I've actually committed to it so much that I purchased it/obtained it in some way. 2016 is pretty good really! Mine was from 2011!
