I am so sorry, i am late again, real life this year keeps getting in the way of these threads, I am still here and I am with you in spirit, so thank you for your patience.

So anyway, how is the mountain of TBR looking.

1 February 17: 34 printed + 14 Kindle = 48, having read 19 books in January
1 March 17: 25 printed + 13 Kindle = 38, having read 26 books in February
1 April 17: 27 printed + 16 Kindle = 43, having read a ridiculous 29 books in March!

1 June 17: 19 printed + 16 Kindle = 35, having read 30 books in May
1 July 17: 19 printed + 18 Kindle = 37, having read 20 books in June
1 August 17: 22 printed + 19 Kindle = 41, having read 23 books in July
1 September 17: 20 printed + 20 Kindle = 40, having read only 17 books in August
1 October 17: 32 printed + 19 Kindle = 51, having read only 13 books in September, the lowest number all year!

The 'problem' with September was a touring holiday that included red telephone boxes and charity shops and relatives with books to pass on and such like, leading to my acquiring 14 en route - and then I had a birthday!!!!
So I'm up but not much above the 50 maximum that I'm trying to restrict myself to. That represents a couple of months worth of reading, more or less, an acceptable cushion, I believe :-) I wouldn't want to run out of reading matter . . . .

This is down from 563 only last week! Not that I read 5 books since then, but I did count them and cull some.

Culling helps my #s too. Sometimes I pull the ones I bought and wonder - what was I thinking???!!!

The rest of my TBRs are extremely long and dense. (I'm reading Emerson's Essays right now. So erudite I can only get through 5 -10 pages a day.)
