Do your TBR piles look like this? At a loss as to how to get your stacks more managable? I found this article on wikiHow. A lot of the info seems so simple. I think I may try some of this for 2010.
For me, I do not enjoy reading Mass Market paperbacks for some reason, yet I own plenty of them, so the titles I really want to read, I'll save (for the beach), and the rest will get donated---I know I won't miss them a bit. Last week I updated my TBR spreadsheet, and I had just over 650 unread books to read (in April that number was under 550). So even though I read about 15-18 books a month, somehow I am acquiring way more books than I'm reading. I'll keep you posted, but if I never write about this subject again, you can assume I failed miserably:(
If this article helps just (1) of you then I did my job ...LOL
