Follow Friday (20)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read. It is a great way for bloggers to make new friends and find new blogs to follow. Go to either blog, follow ALL the instructions and then add you link to the list. It’s just that easy!

This week’s question:

Question of the Week: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

I opted to count not only my physical books, but my Kindle books as well.  Since getting my Kindle over the summer, I have been getting books like crazy! So, I have 36 on my Kindle, plus about 25 on my shelves (under the bed, stacked on the floor, on my coffee table), which makes my total 61 unread books. Phew, that is way more than I thought! I really need to work my through my TBR pile this year. I'm actually scared to look at my "to-read" list on Goodreads (ok, I looked, it's 178 books, ugh)!

How many books do you have waiting to be read? Leave a link to your Follow Friday post in the comment section and I will check it out. 


  1. Following! I need to start using the "T-R" feature on GR. I always feel like I forget about a book before I have a chance to read it. Looking forward to your posts.

  2. Hopping through. 61 is a decent number. Relatively manageable. I bet you can get through a lot of those.

  11. Old follower, hopping through. :)

    178 books on Goodreads is a lot better than mine! I think I am in the 400's now - didn't include that in my answer though! :P

  16. Wow! A Marching band mom who reads a lot?! Can't get much better than that. ;-)

    I was in the marching band when I was in high school, and my mother was always around taking care of all of us. I hope your kids love you being around as much as I loved her being around!

    Good luck with your reading goals this year. You can get through those unread books in no time!
