This week's question is: How many books do you have on your 'to be read shelf’?
If I buy a book, I read it - usually within hours of getting it into my clutches. So, I don't actually have a literal shelf with TBR books on it. I do have lists, though, of books to-be-read, books to-be-bought, books-to-give-as-presents, etc. They are partially on my Amazon wishlist, partially on a list of favorite authors on an old Palm M130 that I use as an e-reader, and mostly in my head. I don't know how many there are. There are many, many pages on my Amazon wishlist. My main wishlist currently stands at 158, my kids' books list currently stands at only 39. Then there are my wishlists for writing books, gardening books, books on home canning (huge hobby of mine), and the list I keep to direct my husband to for birthdays and other gift-giving days. I currently have a couple dozen favorite writers that I buy whenever they have a new book out. And then there's all the series that I want to complete (like Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone books or Lee Martin's Deb Ralston collection). I would have to say that I want to buy, nearly as many books as I already own, which is already more books than will fit on my shelves. (And I seriously want the library room my sister showed in her "Bliss" post. *sigh* Wouldn't that be great?)
Books: Kinsey Millhone, Sue Grafton
