It’s once again time for my favorite feature: Tackling the TBR! There’s nothing I love more than picking out which books to read next, and this slightly organized method of reading has really amped my enjoyment to the next level. 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 the system 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:
TBR Tackler Shelf:
I am thrilled to read all of these titles – some of which are second books in series I’ve started within last year and really enjoyed. There’s a lot of urban fantasy in this line up and I have to say, I don’t hate it.
What I did last month:
Of the 10 titles I selected last month, I actually read 8 of them! What’s more, not a single one of them was lower than 4 stars. This year is starting off with a bang!
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?
