Monday #1


Yesterday was another beautiful spring day here in New England.  I noticed that there wasn't much traffic around the blogosphere and thinking many might have been enjoying the weather.  If you have time today, it would be appreciated if you could read yesterday's Slapdash Sunday meme's posting and maybe even leaving a comment.  After reading a comment from Sheila from One Persons Journey Through A World of Books, I thought I would post a little note about it again.  Thank you.

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about tbr books. (for those that are new to book blogging, and I was one just a few short months ago and had no idea what tbr meant...I wanted to pay it is short for To Be Read)
Where do you keep the books on the top of the tbr pile? Not the bunk of the mountain, but just the tip of the peak – the ‘almost up to’ books?
  I have 3 piles.  On one side of a double floor to ceiling book case, I keep my new books (6 months),  along with those I have won with post it notes on covers with dates purchased/won in one pile.  The other side is for my old (books I purchased over the years and haven't read yet!!).  Those are just shoved in and are in no particular order.  I have a different pile in another room of "review books" with post-it notes as to the order they were received and need to be read.  Since I started reviewing in December, I haven't read any of my personal TBR books, only my Review TBR books.

Photobucket in the fun. You don't need a blog to comment, but if you do and want to join in, links provided for each and all memes.

I keep my immediate TBR pile in the bedroom and the rest of my books in my computer room.

You sound quite organized...I really should go through all my books...I might be surprised as to what I have and forgotten about.

actually, my piles are sort of like that.
except that along with ARC and review books, I now make it a point to work in some books I just want to read.
if it ain't fun, what is the point.

ARC's and Early Reviewer copies are kept separate so I don't forget my promise to read and review asap but otherwise everything is all together on my bookshelves and I just 'know' what I've read or haven't yet.
