TMST: Have you found a way to cut back significantly on your TBR pile?

Have you found a way to cut back significantly on your TBR pile?

(Do excuse me while I try not to die laughing over here...)

Cut back on my TBR pile? Cut back?!!! I lost my mind earlier this year and COUNTED how many books I actually had on my TBR pile - physical, audio and ebook - and it was over 1400 books. 
Since then, I've added... More. So many more. 
(Ebook sales! They're the devil, I tell ya!)

Then I went to RARE London and added even more books...

And I have RARE Florence in September... Don't be mistaken in thinking that the plane ride and baggage limitations will stop me! 
At this point, I don't think anything can... I have an addiction. 

Suffice to say, I have no way to cut back on the TBR pile. 

Well, that's not entirely true... I could stop acquiring books and spend the next 10-12 years just reading books I own but let's be realistic... That ain't going to happen!

So... How about you? Any tips/tricks for cutting back on the TBR pile? 👀



  1. I don't keep track of my books for this very reason. I would hate to know the exact number of books I may never read. In all fairness, I don't really buy many books any more. I use the library a LOT. Rare in the fall too. Look at you!

  2. I am always amazed at the people who have a literal TBR shelf (like for physical books) and say things like, Oh I have 32 unread books. Um, who are those people? LOL I will say that I am pretty discerning when it comes to adding books to my TBR (like on Goodreads). I don't just add every random book that sounds interesting. I only add upcoming books by favorite authors or a small handful that I genuinely want to read. Even so, between the unread books on my shelves, on my Kindle, and my TBR... yeah, I'm set for life. LOL
