I will also go on Netgalley and go on a bit of a requesting spree. Does anyone else do that? At first it was because I wasn't sure if I would be approved for everything I was requesting. The problem with this is that I was approved for the vast majority of them and then I found that all I was reading were e-galleys. Again, this makes me sound very ungrateful for an opportunity to read some amazing books before they are published. That is not how I want to come across but I was finding myself looking at my bookshelf and longing to read some of the books that had been sitting there for a long time. for a while I stopped requesting books on Netgalley but recently I started going a bit bananas again.
I have been requesting galleys and also putting holds on books at the library. This means that again I am only reading galleys and library books and my personal collection is not only being ignored but growing because I keep buying more books.
About a month ago I decided to reorganize my shelves into read and TBR and I was shocked to see how many books I had bought and I have yet to read. My shelf is set up so I can put books on both sides and one whole side plus a bit is all TBR. Here are some pictures of my MASSIVE TBR pile!
|This side is made up entirely of books that I haven't read yet.|
|This side is mostly read except for the first two top boxes.|
Does anyone else have this problem or am I just a little crazy? Also please let me know if a book shelf tour is something you'd like to see. I have film one and upload it if it's something that people are interested in.
