TBR List

Back on Blogger, I kept a TBR list for a while. Then the size of it began to depress me and I stopped (that’s also why I took everything off the “to read” shelf at Goodreads). But one of the useful aspect of the list was that, when I couldn’t pick what to read, everything was neatly numbered and I could pick a random number to pick a book.

I’ve been struggling to choose something to read lately, so I’ve decided to rebuild a TBR list to have if I need to resort to the random number generator. I don’t know if I’ll use it; I don’t know if I’ll keep it up to date. But it feels like something worth having at the moment.
