So I did a little count of all my unread books yesterday and got to 60 before I got bored and gave up counting. Because I have such a large number I’ve decided to go back to using a TBR jar to pick what book I’m going to read next. I used this method last autumn and found it was a really fun way of picking what book I’m going to read next. It also meant I read some books that had been sitting on my shelves for years without being read.
The TBR jar is super simple to make. All you need is a list of your unread books and something to keep it in. And if you don’t want to make a physical TBR jar I’ve found a way of randomly picking a book using Goodreads. All you need to do is make a shelf with all your unread books, then view it as a list. Goodreads will number the books in the list so you can use a random number generator to randomly pick a book. I use this method if I can’t decide what book I want to buy next. Though its safe to say I won’t be buying any more books for a while.
I know that some people will donate a book if they pull its name out and they don’t want to read it. I’ve decided not to do this simply because I don’t want to donate a book I might enjoy just because I didn’t feel like reading it at the time.
And the book I will be reading next is…
