This post is going up a LOT later than I would’ve liked, but I’m honestly thrilled it’s going up at all. You see, I’ve been dealing with the painful eye-strain injury for the last couple of months that has taken from me everything I love to do – blogging and reading at the top of that list. Luckily, I finally seem to be on the upswing of it… fingers crossed.
Because of these issues, I was only able to enjoy 3 TBR books last month, but all is not lost. You see, I discovered just how much I LOVE integrating this feature into my daily reading life. When I was confined to reading only a few pages a day, I knew exactly which novels got top priority and that somehow made my plight seem not so dire. I took comfort in the knowledge that I was reading the best books first. Bring on the mantras!
Read the best books first.
Life is too short to read books you’re not enjoying.
However you put together your TBR for the next month, the goal is to reduce the amount of obligation in reading and increase the fun.
Here’s a look at how this feature works:
1. Identify the titles that take top priority in your TBR.
2. Combine them all in your own Tackling the TBR post.
3. Throughout the month pick from that pile as the mood strikes you.
Here’s what mine looks like:
September 2015 TBR Tackler Shelf:
I really hope all have the ability to read most of these this month. I am incredibly excited for Soundless by Richelle Mead and will be dropping everything to devour that one first. I’m pretty sure every author on this list has made one of my Top Ten Tuesday posts one time or another – that bodes well.
Now, I can tell you from experience that this Tackling the TBR experiment is so much more fun and rewarding when there’s more than one person (me) participating. Does anybody want to play along?
Even if you don’t specifically use my system, feel free to share your versions of how you manage your TBR pile (and the links to your posts if applicable) in the comments!
Maybe we can help make each other’s systems even better. :)
What books are you Tackling this month?
