An idea I got from The Toddled Dredge (via K for Kat). Here’s what she said:

“So here today I present to you an Unread Books Challenge. Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf – the books you have not read, but keep meaning to. The books that begin to weigh on your mind. The books that make you cover your ears in conversation and say, ‘No! Don’t give me another book to read! I can’t finish the ones I have!’ “

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  5. Lovely idea – here’s my post about *some* of my unread books – oh for more time to read!.

  6. These are just some of the books I have waiting for my attention. My Booking Through Thursday post at Reading Upside Down. I’m looking forward to comparing my stack(s) of books with others.

    Why are there only 24 hours in a day and why can’t I spend more of them reading?

  23. This task clearly demonstrates my commitment phobic tendencies when picking out a book to read:


  24. I tend to collect books that I’d like to read someday. Here are some of them:

  25. Hi!
    This is a great subject to discuss. Mine is posted at my place, Just Books. Have a great day!


  26. Here’s my stack of unread books!

  27. I hope I can someday read everything in my TBR pile (1200+ books). In the meantime, here’s my post:


  28. I listed all the books on my bookshelf and it is a pretty short list. I guess I should be happy that I don’t have that much space or otherwise I would have way more books. are my books

  29. I’ll eventually come around to reading these books listed here: http://okbolover.wordpress.com/2009/07/09/booking-through-thursday-3/

  32. I have a happy and fulfilling relationship with my to-be-read shelf – both the shelf itself and its contents. My entry is over here.

  33. mines up, click on my name it’ll take you to my post

  34. This is the first time I have ever put up pictures of my TBR book shelf. It looks scarier in pictures!


  35. I am so late! I was putting off this post, just as I am putting off reading my books! Here’s my post.

  36. The stack in the picture is just a tip of the iceberg.
    Full answer is up. Happy BTT everyone. 🙂

  37. Sorry I am all late with this one. I could in no way list all of the books, but I did list 20 that seem to keep just out of my reach for some reason…


  38. Yep. I have a bit of a list here!

  39. The pics give you an idea of what’s happening with my unread books now that I’ve run out a place to put them all: http://www.whosabiblioaddict.com/?p=942

    Haven’t participated in a long time, so its nice to get back into this. I’ve been rather lax for a long time. Sorry for the weird font, I hope you can read it. Blogger wigged out on me and I couldn’t get it to change to normal.

  43. Hi Everyone (Deb)!

    I hope you are having a great day/weekend ahead! Sorry for posting mine late!

    Here Mine!

  44. This one hit home, so I had to post on it–even though I’m so late! Here’s mine:


  45. I’m late too but I’ve been meaning to get a TBR list done for ages so this was a good opportunity. My BTT is here

  51. My post will appear on Gnoe’s Graasland on Monday 13th! (Mondays the 13th are much worse than Friday the 13th, don’t you think?! Better have a nice post to read then 😉

  52. […] The Booking Through Thursday question this week was to show pictures of our TBR piles.  Mine is out of control, to say the least, but I braved it and took a few pictures to share.  I have one TBR bookcase (I refuse to buy a second) but it’s double-stacked and crammed as full as possible.  My TBR review books are completely separate.  Here are some pictures of my TBR situation… […]

  56. I’m late to the table on this topic – so I bring donuts with me! Here is my list:



  57. ” When I write or share something about one of my friends in a posting, I always make sure I send them a copy of it, so they know what was said about them. Today I included information about you and your blog site in my posting, so I thought I should let you know about it as well.”

    The above paragraph is the first paragraph in an email I sent out today, to all of the owners of blogs whom host “theme days”, that I could find email addresses for. {But I could not find an email address on your blog.} I have decided that from now on the only ones I will do such for, are any new “theme day(s)” hosts I find, whom I can not find an email address for. Contacting so-o many of you this way just takes w-a-y to much time!!! If you wish to again be notified that I am including you in a list, then PLEASE send me your email address via – pinkbunnies (at) sbcglobal (dot) com. I hereby promise I will NOT be giving it out. Also, please put something about “theme days” in the subject line. Thanks!!

    The rest of the email is what I posted today on our blog. Go to: http://www.xanga.com/thehousethatlovebuilt to read it for yourself.

    Hopefully, it will then clarify of all of this for you ;-}
