Musing Mondays (April 6)

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about your to be read list…

As a follow up to last week's question, Joseph asked how you keep track of your tbr list. Do you have a paper list or on your computer? Do you take it with you when you go shopping? How do you decide what gets added to it?


PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.





My tbr list is mostly made up of books I've read reviews for on various blogs, and it lives on a sheet of the excel spreadsheet I talked about last week.
I don't print it out or anything, but I do have a copy of it on my phone (I love my phone) so I can take it with me that way.
I suppose the biggest way I track my tbr is, when I get some built up, I look them up on the library catalogue (both the public and uni library) and then sort them that way so I know where to go to find them. Plus, if I'm running in the library and don't have time to browse, then I've got a ready list of books to grab.

Becca congrats your new well-deserved awards. My musing is here and it sparked a question for future MM. Does anyone else suffer from TBR anxiety? I think it should be right up there wih PMS and PTS!

Here is my answer.

And my quick answer to Wendy's question above is - Yes, Yes, Yes.
