Follow My Book Blog Friday (22)


This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!

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

Answer: 171 I know, I couldn't believe it either. At first I was like...


But then, really 171 is not that bad because you know what? I LOVE BOOKS! So having that many books that I haven't read is perfectly okay with me because I know I'll always have something to read at home. And honestly, I can't help from buying books even though I know I have 171 sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. I'll read them eventually...I promise! That's why I joined the TBR challenge this year, to try to make a dent in my TBR pile. Hopefully I can get through a bunch this year!

  1. I'm the same way, if I want a book I'll buy it or get from the library even though I have plenty of books to read already.

  3. woah, over a hundred. i use to be there but i took one year off and did not purchase a book and it put a nice dent in my pile. plus i can't have books piled on my stand, i like to see them transfer over to the finale resting shelves. lol
    thanks for stopping by and happy reading to you always.

  5. That's my excuse for having so many books. I just love them so much!! And the pile grows and grows and I ALWAYS have a hard time picking which to read next. Then something new and shiny comes out and it jumps straight to the top of the pile. It's a never ending cycle O.O

  18. YAY PASCAL!!! Love it!! Although I say he was my second fave in that movie! Maximus was my fave character! I'm a total Disney geek!

    Nearly 200 books!? That's insane! Seeing a lot of insane numbers today though. Envying the people who have less than my 50+. I miss the days when I would run out of new reads!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  28. The good thing about a lot of unread books is that you're never sitting there thinking, "I don't have any books to read!"

    Good luck with reading all of those!

  29. Whoever doesn't like to read, they should be wacked on a head with a great book until they start reading it, and then they are converted! Yep :) Here's to hoping that the TBR challenge gets a lot of books read, so that there's room for more :) Happy reading!

  30. Sorry for the late FF visit. I was surprised by the number of unread books I had as well. But, I completely agree about the compulsion to keep buying book!

    Thanks for visiting! Old follower.
