It’s been 6 months since my first edition of Tackling My TBR Pile. Here and there…and everywhere I have considerably added to the pile, and added and added and I feel I have made no progress at all of reading the books that are STILL gathering dust at the bottom of the pile.
I seem to be buying more and more books and not reading enough of what I already have laying on the shelf. It doesn’t help that once a month I go to a book club and also have my reading in heels subscription so I keep reading new novels instead of what I already own, but hopefully this post inspires me to read what I have before delving into new novels! From my original post I read 6/6 books HORRAY so maybe not so bad after all.
Books I have ticked off the list.
YAY I have achieved something!
1. Starter for 10 by David Nicholls
2. Funny Girl by Nick Hornby

4. The Gilded Cage by Vic James
5. Humble Pie by Gordon Ramsey
6. Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote

I think my issue is I love the new, I enjoy a fresh book and I am also addicted to buying books. I started off well 6/6 books are read that were on my shelf for ages! My next goal is to read the 10 books that I’ve been banging on about reading for MONTHS! Hoping I get through many of them before I post the next addition and not add too many to the never ending pile.
How do you control your TBR pile? How do you stop yourselves from buying a new book instead of reading something you already have? Let me know I need some tips!. Katie x
