The Endless To-Be-Read Pile
(originally posted on My Really, Real Reality)
One of the blogs I follow recently asked the question: "How far along are you in your current read before you start thinking about what you’ll read next?" As I pondered my answer to that question I realized, I'm thinking about what I'll read, after I read the book I am going to read after the book I will read after the book I am currently reading!
Truth is - I never stop thinking about what I am going to read next. Or after that, or after that! My TBR (to be read) list is a mile long. And never seems to get any shorter.
I often find myself thinking about a book I want to read and have to remind myself that I have 2 or 3, or more!, books stacked up on the nightstand or waiting in my Nook which need attention before I can get to the book I was thinking about. So the TBR pile gets even bigger.
It's a self feeding, never ending, circle of a cycle. But I can't complain. I love to read. I have since I was a little kid. I actually can say I have a fear of suddenly having nothing to read - and I plan to make sure I never have to realize that nightmare. By keeping the endless TBR pile fed and growing.
And now I pose the question to you - "How far along are you in your current read before you start thinking about what you’ll read next?" Am I as strange as I think I am? Or do others think that far ahead in their reading lists?
