Let’s take a look at my #TBR pile, shall we?
Technically, this is both my and my husband’s TBR pile. Please note that my pile is only the first shelf. The other three are the husband’s. I have a MUCH higher turnover rate.
A sizeable portion of these I got from work. One of the many benefits of working in a building that comes with a cheap-books section. When they’re only $2 each, there’s so little holding me back I’m only surprised I haven’t picked up more of them.
A few were also picked up on my honeymoon to Great Britain, during which we stopped at Hay, the famous book town in Wales. We brought an extra duffel bag just to carry the books we would pick up there. It was very heavy and full at the end of the trip.
I think the rest are mostly books I picked up at random places around town, as well as a few birthday presents.
So, on to an account of what I haven’t gotten around to reading yet.
