Another year, another Mt. TBR. I started this yearly project back in 2008 and thought it was fun to recreate every year as books were added. The only problem was that at some point it just got to be too many books. In 2015 I was up to 876 books. That’s 876 books in my house that I have not read! I try to declutter and always have a giveaway box going in the house for old clothes, toys, etc., but until this last year I haven’t done such a great job with the books.
Last year was the first year I actually had my number go down! I had 827 books. The physical act of moving all of these books to one spot every year really puts those numbers in perspective. I was exhausted last year and went on a donation spree, read 31 and had a Bookish Wine Party where a few more found their way to good homes, but I also added 49. So, after all that I was looking forward to my new Mt. TBR. I wasn’t disappointed.
Still looks a little unmanageable right? But I went from 827 last year to 734 this year! Yay! That’s 2 years in a row that my book wall has gone down by considerable numbers. Maybe next year I can get into the 600s 🙂
