Musing Mondays

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about tbr books.

Where do you keep the books on the top of the tbr pile? Not the bulk of the mountain, but just the tip of the peak – the ‘almost up to’ books?

Well, almost all of the books in my house are TBRs (I try to get rid of most books once I've read them, with notable exceptions) so I get to look at them a lot. For some inexplicable reason the second shelf from the top on my right-hand bookcase seems to get the majority of the most recent and most tempting TBRs, but there's no real thinking behind that. I also try to keep them kind of organized on my Goodreads TBR page. But for the most part, what I decide to read next is mostly based on my mood and whim, so even a book at the "top" of my TBR list could go unread for years. (Exceptions: book club, having borrowed a book.) I've tried before to keep a more organized top of the TBR pile, but it hasn't really meant that I've read in an any more organized fashion.

I don't have a TBR pile. Here's my Monday Musing.

I have many TBR piles...many. and yes, a book could be on top and go unread as I am easily distracted by the newest acquired shiny book.
