Some of them are in funky categories, but hey. Do I look like a bookstore?

I think that's all of them. I'm not sure. The pile is just over 3 ft tall at 33.5 inches. I've had some of them for nearly a year and I haven't read them. I don't know where to start.

So -- what's in your TBR pile? No re-reads, only books you've never read before.

LOL, actually, doll, you kinda DO look like a bookstore, lol. But that's okay, so do I. I have to compile my list still. It's not going to be pretty. But I got my tacked down a bit. Probably only about half of yours. ;)

Not allowed to really read until I finish Damn Book--that's it new name, btw. :)

Smooches,
Dee

I couldn't possibly list them all. I have over 90 books on three shelves waiting to be read and I probably add to that pile at the rate of 5 - 10 a month.

Thank God I'm not the only one with insane piles like that.

I can't wait to read Wicked and I so want 1776. I have more beets on my pile. Beets- classics I should have read, but didn't but am trying to now. Like the Aenid. That's on my Beet pile. The Makers of Rome.

Oh, Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card came today! So did The Unaborted Socrates, by Peter Kreeft. But those are fun.

I have too many.

My girlfriend doesn't have a TV time being and she is polishing them off like crazy. But I don't watch TV, and have 7 kids and she has none, so I allow myself some grace there. lol

One of my favorite books is a collection of short stories by Dorothy Parker. That woman had genius. She's not comfortable, but she's amazing.
Also, "1776" is a good book. I loved it. I'm in the middle of re-reading "March Of Folly" by Barbara Tuchman. I actually read that stuff for enjoyment. I finished "A Distant Mirror" last month.
And yes I am bragging. Have you seen that book? It could injure someone just if they try to carry it!
Great TBR list. I wrote some of them down.

Are you MAD, woman? Read Good Omens! READ GOOD OMENS NOW!!!

Then read the Cherryh.

So there.

OMG! I'm glad I'm not the only one, to tell the truth, I have a three-shelf bookcase with books to read. ;-) Yep. Better believe it, I'm a class-A book addict. Some get read quickly, others linger, it depends on my mood and, how much I'm personally writing.

So relieved to see others with good sized tbr piles. I can't even remember what's all in mine but at last count it was about 22 and there's about 10 more coming in the next two weeks to join in.

It's not categorized by genre, and a few aren't released yet (Harrison, Woodworth, Ward, and Armstrong are all releasing new titles this year that I am eagerly anticipating), but should give you an idea of what's on the list.
