My Physical TBR as of July 1, 2021

Good Morning,

One of my goals this year was to get my physical TBR down to 100 books. I am really happy to say that as of July 1, 2021 I have lowered my physical TBR to 91 books. I have decided that I want to try to keep a “smaller” physical TBR. There was many factors that has helped me come to this conclusion. Just to name a few 1) a smaller TBR will mean less anxiety for me when it comes to the books on my shelves; 2) I can continue finished series without pushing reading sequels out sometimes for years; and 3) I can read books that I buy without guilt from the older books on my TBR.

What books are on your TBR? Should I push any of these books to the top of mine?

  1. Wow, only 100 books. That’s great! I have so many books I need to read…probably almost 200. I think it would be cool if you updated this list as you read them. Also, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins are two of my favorites! But so many of these on your list look great.
