  2. Yikes! Be careful Wendy! You pull a book from there, it just might fall and hurt you!

  3. I want your books and the shelf, Wendy!!!

  4. Oh - it may look untidy to you, but it looks like a slice of heaven to me. Great picture :)

  5. Wonderful to have so many great words nearby!

  6. I call it entertainment storage. What if something happened to the TV and computer. At least you'd have your books. At least, that's my rationalization.

  7. OMG....yet i can relate totally...LOL

  8. Wow. This is the last time I complain about my TBR pile! Good luck with all that.

  9. Yikes! My shelf of concentrated TBR is much smaller, thank goodness. This isn't to say there aren't books all over the house waiting to be read, but the most obvious location isn't quite so scary.

  10. Your TBR "pile" looks fantastic! This should last you at least a little while! It's always nice to see other bloggers with piles of books invading the house like this ;)

  11. Thanks for this! You've made me feel better about my TBR pile.

  12. That's a great picture. I haven't dedicated an entire bookcase to my TBR stack, but I'm very close. I think I my stack is about 70% the size of yours. ;-)

  13. Wowsers!! That is a huge TBR pile! I love taking a peak at other people's bookshelves and books :D

    Thanks for sharing!

  14. Thanks for the TBR sampler - but don't you have a whole ROOM full of those things :-D? I like the desk and hutch, and it looks like you've got plenty there to keep you busy!

  15. On the plus side, if the Zombie Apocalypse comes and we all have to barricade ourselves, you won't run out of reading material :P

  16. This reminds me how we just bought a new bookshelf recently and it's already been filled up! I'm having to stack on top and do double layers again. Ah, sigh, at least we know we're not alone in our book-love.

  17. It may be untidy but it sure looks like a lot of great reading ahead of you.

  18. Holy cow, Wendy! Such a lovely stockpile of books! I hope there are no kitties hiding under any of those stacks! lol I am impressed that your books are neatly piled. My cats would never let them stay that way! One would poke the books until they fell over, another would sit on them, another would jump on and off them and thereby knock them over...!

    Happy Reading!

  19. OH MY!! But this is also why I refuse to put them all in one place. Spread out in several different places in the house makes them seem less . . . well . . . like they might attack.

  20. Oh My Heavenly Stars! I only thought my stack/shelves were getting bad. I did not really have a TBR shelf/stacks until I started book reviewing a few years ago. :)

  21. Can't you just hear them whispering, "Weeeeeennnndddyyyyyyy...reeeeeeeaaaad me."

    ;-)

  22. I beg to differ with your caption - this looks VERY tidy. Everything neatly piled!

    except for that part, my office could compete. Enjoy!

  23. I love to see other people's bookshelves! I am happy that for now all my books fit in the shelves and the floor is empty.

    ReplyDelete
  24. lol-Boy oh boy does that ever look familiar!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm trying to see if I can recognize any of the books by their spines...not so far! Your TBR piles looks heavenly to me...

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love looking at pictures of books! And at least your TBR titles are on shelves (well, some of them, anyway) - mine are in stacks on the floor beside my bed!

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is awesome! And I thought I had tons of TBR books waiting at home.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ha! Not as untidy as my pile. But quite impressive :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Tee hee!!!!
    I think we all can sympathize. An ironic image to say the least.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love it!!! My tbr books are currently tidy as I just got the bug to re-do the shelves but usually they are far worse than this.

  31. Thank you for dropping and and commenting! I won't be running out of reading material anytime soon. All the books in the photo are ones I bought, got in trade or what have you. My review books are kept in a separate location.

    Florinda - Shh! Don't give away my secret. ;-) I didn't want to overwhelm everyone with the magnitude of my TBR collection all at once. I don't think it's obvious from the photos but the top two shelves are double shelved and the desk portion is triple shelved.

    Amy (7 Tails) - My cats and dog aren't allowed in the TBR room too often. Fortunately, they aren't tempted to climb the mountains of books when they do sneak in. The dog, now he's a different story. No obstacle will get in his way of getting where he wants to go. LOL

  32. You have more than I do! I don't feel so guilty anymore!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, then! I'm feeling much better about my TBR books. Perhaps I should quite calling mine Mt. TBR because you win!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You make me smile. That is much what my bookshelf looks like. And I have 4 boxes of books in the basement, too! I need a bigger bookshelf!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Unread and untidy....I feel so much better now! :)

  36. LOL I love this!! Also I just learned about that Ning Social Network Book Bloggers from your blog - I was roaming all over trying to catch up. I signed up and my profile is pending approval.

    Most of my books are all still packed and that makes me so sad. The problem is finding space for them all so my entire apartment looks soooooooo similar to your corner. Isn't it awesome to be surrounding by books?

  37. Thank you all for your comments. :-) I love looking at other people's TBR shelves, stacks and piles too.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's a great picture! I don't even want to think about rounding up all of my TBR books - last count, I was nearing 200. I'd need a wide-angle lens!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lisa - I'd probably need one to show you the other side of the room. :-)
