My TBR list is too large. Titanic sized. Tremendously big.
At present, my TBR pile has about 70 books. This includes the books on my kindle, a few ARCs and a couple of books from the library.
The ARCs have to take precedence, of course . (Sadly, I started a book not from the ARC list yesterday. I am bad.)
70 books is overwhelmingly large. Before I got my kindle, my TBR list did not get this large. In fact, it was as large as the number of books I could fit into one library bag or on top of my table. Half the table; I need space for the computer and notebooks and speakers and various other stuff.
Having a kindle means I have more unread books now than ever before. Once, I tried to decrease it by reading only from the TBR list. I pretended I didn’t have a library card, pretended the kindle had no way to download books with one click (maybe two clicks).
It worked, but not for long. I only managed to decrease the TBR list by a handful of books. Now it’s back and bigger than ever.
It’s a little intimidating. Also, joyful. ;)
