Reading Through My Bookshelf

Last Weeks Status: 95
Incoming Books: 4
Books Completed: 0
Current Status: 99

I've been reading a lot of ebooks lately, but I'm starting a long run of physical books as soon as I finish my current read to prevent myself from reaching the dreaded 100 and so I can actually decrease my TBR instead of increasing it every week!


  1. Ha ha ... don't worry, I'm ALWAYS increasing my physical book stash! Though, I'd like to try and get it down UNDER 200 ... that would be awesome.

    Good luck!

  2. I should really start keeping track of the books I have like you do...but to be honest, I'm kind of scared to! haha I'm sure the number is completely overwhelming! :P

    Also, I'm gonna reply to your comment on my blog here so that I know you can see it. :)

    The shipping actually was kind of expensive, but they only charge you once even if your stuff ships separately, which is awesome! And if you get a really big order ($99 or more), you get free shipping. And they did have Khal Drogo. :)

  3. Man, I wish I had less than 100 books TBR on my shelf! I work at the library, and I bring home so many books to read from there that I forget to read the ones I own. It's great to stick to a goal, but don't beat yourself up too much if you break 100 :)

  4. Good luck to you getting through midterm season! I always hated this time of year, so I can understand how you are so busy. I haven't heard of the two you got from Merit Press, but I did like your descriptions of them! I recall hearing good things about the first Monument 14 book, so I hope you like it and its sequel - I'm curious how you will like them. Congrats on not buying any books and keeping your tbr under 100... I've thought about counting the books I have on my shelf that I haven't read yet, but I'm scared what the number would be...
