The TBR List

I saw someone on a blog the other day refer to her TBR list (TBR stands for, To Be Read). I like that. I am always keeping a running list of books I would like to read. I am constantly stacking and restacking the pile of books on the nightstand beside my bed-- moving some back to the shelf, some to the car to go back to the library, or some to the "never mind" section. Some just get slated for "later" according to my mood. Ie, I am not in the mood to read heavy nonfiction tonight, just give me something fun and mindless!

So, just for fun, I thought that today I would share my TBR list with you. Because I keep such an extensive list, I have divided them into categories. (No comments please about my OCD or anal tendencies-- I already know.) I will star the ones that I have already started, but haven't finished yet!

I got given When God Whispers Your Name for my birthday. It is a really awesome book, I highly recommend it! I am currently re-reading the Dee Henderson O'Malley series as well. I'm still feeling around for which Christian authors I really like and hope to add onto my TBR list soon!!

Sounds like a wonderful list. I've seen that Animal, Vegetable one around and thought I may check into it. Great list! Thanks for sharing!
