This week's question feature is from
Jennifer from Book Den

Q: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

My Answer: I already listed most of mine on here under the 'TBR pile' tab, this list shows I have 107 books to read, but I have also got 5 in my cupboard at work and the 7 I got for Christmas that I haven't written on yet so that comes to approximately:

119 books!!! Oh Dear, I'd better get reading. :D

This Friday's Question:
Reading Resolutions: What are some of your reading goals for the new year?

My Answer:


-To at least half my TBR pile, get it below 50 books. (can't see this happening as everytime I finish one I add 3 more. :D)

- To try some different genres/styles at least one or two to broaden my horizons.

- Read 200 books this year, I was just under last year.

Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!! Happy New Year. :D

There's no shame in that number. Books are too easy to buy and the numbers just pile up way too quickly! My new years resolution is read more too!

Awesome goals! I am so with you on trying different genres - I have my favorites, but there are times when I'm a little burned out on the same type of books.

I love your reading resolutions this year. I never thought to incorporate new genres as a resolution. I may have to try that myself.

I'm doing the same thing and trying to work through my TBR pile. I know the amount is somewhere in the 300s but I refuse to check - I'm taking it a day at a time. Hopefully, I make some progress.

Kristan - I know, it's so easy to add to the pile!!!

Sophie - glad I'm not the only one.

Tanya - Thanks! I know what you mean, there is only so much you can take of one thing without a change.

yalootbag - Great, hope you find some great new books.

Kristin - good luck, hope you get through your book pile.

Jessica - I couldn't believe how many I had! *must read*

Alexa - wow that's a big amount. Hope you can get through some of them,

Michael- true, but sometime too much choice can be a problem, I have to decide which book to pick up and they all call to me.

Hopping through. 119 seems to be a pretty common number. I'm not too far below it. I'm hoping to get the number down soon.
