I was checking out my TBR pile and noticed it was HUGE!!!! I think it's impossible to actually finish reading all the books I have in that pile (especially when I keep adding books to that giant pile). I know a lot of readers can relate to that. My TBR pile is probably much less than the normal, but it's huge to me because I'm a person that likes to finish things and cross things off lists. I'm not good at leaving things unfinished.
I actually took the time to view each one of the books on my TBR pile...and OMG!!!
Imagine my surprise when I found out that I didn't even want to read all those books in the first place. Yeah, maybe at some point I actually wanted to read them, but that time has definitely passed.
I mean, there were books that I didn't even know how they got on there? What was I thinking? This sounds horrible? How did this book even get here?
Then there were books that I sorta-kinda wanted to read somewhere in the long future, eventually. I quickly got rid of those along with the books I didn't want to read.
I mean these books didn't really interest me that much. I just thought I'd read them cause....I don't know. Just for the sake of reading of them, I guess...
I feel like my TBR pile should be one filled with books that I'm SUPER excited to read, books that I'm anxious waiting for them, books that make me feel like 5 stars is a definite possibility!
All my hard work went to waste because I think I added atleast twice as much books as I removed at the end of the day, but atleast now I feel like I definitely want to read ALL those books. I feel so good about it that I don't even mind the fact that I now have more books in my TBR pile than ever!
So from now on, I'm going to check out my TBR pile once every six months just to see if I still want to read all those books. It'll be a long process, but I'll do it anyway. The TBR pile will be defeated! I will conquer it!
