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:
March 2020 TBR Tackler Shelf:
Here’s a miracle: I actually finished all the books on my TBR Tackler Shelf for February! I’m not sure what exactly shifted, but I all of the sudden found myself back in the glorious reading groove I’ve been missing the last couple of years. I’m planning to enjoy it as long as possible. This month my ambitions include a couple of continuations, a book I’ve been rainy-day saving for a long time (Inda), and two review copies. If I have a chance, I’ll also be continuing with my reread of the Licanius books. My first inclination is to add more books to my shelf, but I don’t want to discourage future me with too many ambitions. :)
Have a great month in reading!
