TBR — a pet peeve of mine!
I have to laugh at a number of bloggers — yes, laugh at them, out loud and with gusto — when they talk about their TBR (to be read) pile. But what they are referring to is, in fact, a factious list they have on Goodreads or Netgalley. And not, I might add, a real, honest to goodness pile of books teetering like the leaning tower of Pisa, on their bedside table.
There is a big difference between a wish list of books you want to read (whether on Goodreads or not) and a pile of bought, borrowed, or
stolen books you’ve been sent to review. Having 139 books on your ‘Goodreads/Netgalley’ list doesn’t compare. I have 32 books stacked in my TBR pile, and that’s the smallest it’s been in years!
Please, people, stop talking about lists of books you have yet to beg/steal/buy or borrow as being a TBR pile. It’s not. It’s a wish list.
