What's a TBR pile, you ask? It's a to-be-read pile, as in I need to read them soon. And boy do I have a lot of books that need to be read. This is only one bookshelf. They are stacked in double rows. The weight is so heavy that the shelves are bowed (if you look closely you can see that.) I also have books on my night stand (about ten more), at my office, on my dresser, stacked on a chair, on the coffee table, in the bathroom, etc.
Here is an up-close view. So if one of your books is in the stack, I will read it, eventually. I just have to do what I can. If a book doesn't enthrall me it tends to get set aside for awhile. I have to be motivated to finish a book and that means it has to draw me...a lot. If it takes me months to finish a book it was still good enough for me to finish, right? So if you're an author, please hang in there. I have so many authors I love and it's so hard to say NO. Help me, Lord?
