Booking Through Thursday...Unread

An idea I got from The Toddled Dredge (via K for Kat). Here’s what she said:

“So here today I present to you an Unread Books Challenge. Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf – the books you have not read, but keep meaning to. The books that begin to weigh on your mind. The books that make you cover your ears in conversation and say, ‘No! Don’t give me another book to read! I can’t finish the ones I have!’ “





Ok, I have so many unread books, probably over 1,000, that there is no way I could provide a list. Even my LibraryThing TBR tag is incomplete. Instead, I'll show you my unread books. All 3 bookcases of them!

Well, 2 pictures anyways. The third bookshelf is buried as we are repainting one of our bedrooms and I didn't feel like unearthing it. All 3 of my bookshelves are all unread books, and all of the shelves are double, if not triple stacked. I rarely keep books after I'ver read them, they usually get swaped or donated.
What does you unread pile look like?

Wow, that was a lot of unread books! I have perhaps about 40 unread books and I thought that was a lot(and more coming my way) :)

Monique said...

That is a whole lot of unread books. I have read about 4 that I could see. Are those all unread or a combination of the read and unread?
My BTT is here.

Jules said...

Wow! I'm so jelous of your collection. I clearly dont have enough books yet!

Finally, somebody who owned more unread books than I do! (I think I'm hovering somewhere around 600.) Though your unread books are much better organized than mine and you read faster!

lol your pile is as big as mine!!! lol. You and I have a lot to go through :) it's fun though isn't it?

I've already some of your reviews. I think I'm going to do some more book shopping soon. :)

Now that is a lot of books! My collection actually looks puny compared to yours!

Yvonne said...

Your books look so neat! Mine are stacked all haphazardly. LOL

Sandy Nawrot said...

Mine is pretty ugly. You have alot, but at least they look somewhat organized! Mine are falling all over the place, and would definitely take too long to make a list. Not long ago, I made a small list of ones that are screaming at me (almost distracting), demanding attention.

Diane said...

I thought I was bad LOL; they do have a way of multiplying (books are lake rabbits).

Ali said...

Wow, what a pretty book collection; I am drooling! I try to organize mine like that, but they soon morph into stacks all over the house :)

Miss Cindy said...

My TBR pile is pretty small because I can usually stop myself from buying too many books, but wow! Your TBR pile is HUGE! Three whole bookshelves? That's like a whole library there :)

infiniteshelf said...

Ok, I feel a little bit better about my TBR pile now; it's just a little less huge than yours (but still gigantic!)I really should try to get a bookshelf for mines too, instead of having them invading my desk! And I recognized soo many titles of your books, titles I have or want to read.

Lenore said...

Ok, I guess you've got me beat!

Tracie said...

I think that you've helped me out. Next time that my husband complains about money that I'm spending on books...I'm going to show him your shelf :)

Jeane said...

That's a lot of books! I recognized some. You should read Moo, it's very funny.

Tara said...

Wow! Now I don't feel so bad, I have about as many!

farmlanebooks said...

That looks very similar to my pile! Yours look a bit tidier than mine though!

Melanie said...

Ok, you win! If you're ever trapped at home you'll be set for entertainment for sure!

I'm not as organized as you are. I have a stack sitting on my night-stand, which is what you saw on my blog. They are most likely to be perused soon. The rest is scattered around the room on the floor.
