So many books are piled up and they're just waiting for me... To my dear books: You are not forgotten! ❤ Sincerely, JulietBooks
I bought this bookish necklace from www.zulily.com It‘s so cool. I also saw some earrings on there that say this too. I‘m going to buy them to match this necklace. This necklace says,”So many books, so little time”. This was my first purchase from this website. They have so many things on this website. I got this necklace at a low price too and they gave me a jewelry bag to keep the necklace in.
I think I've got all my categories for my TBR via RNG.
Lately, reading has felt like a chore. I blame the pevelance of reading challenges and trackers and myself for acquiring too many books 🤣. I'm working on a strategy that will help me plan my reading but will also feel like reading at whim. I'm making a numbered list of categories and each month I'll use a RNG to choose 4-5 categories. Then I'll read books I already own to fit the categories. Do the #littens have any category suggestions?
#30junebooks #bookwormproblems @howjessreads So...I may constantly take out more books from the library than I possibly have time to read...here is my current stack. I probably pay more overdue fines than I‘d like to admit 😮
Another BookCon for me, another wonderful, exhausting day!! I spent so much time talking to publishing people and new friends, I unfortunately didn‘t make it over to where the Littens were! I hope that everyone who went had a fabulous time, and if you‘re going today, that you snag more books!
I‘m joining in at the last minute, and here‘s my stack for #14Books14Weeks
These are mostly from my ever growing tbr and one has actually been on my shelves for 14 yrs. Three of these books are bought this year, but two of them are nonfiction and I don‘t read as much nonfiction as I would like.
Here‘s my stack for #14books14weeks - 5 will count toward prompts for the library summer reading program, 2 for #HPbuddyread, 4 with the kiddo for #NancyDrewchallenge, 1 for family Jane Austen book club. We‘ll see how this goes!
Ok, I‘m in, here‘s my stack! A few I knew I was going to read this summer anyway, and the rest a mix of both new and shiny and books that have been on my shelf way too long and keep getting back-burnered by new releases and library holds. I also tried to mix up the more serious, with a few shorter reads. May the odds be ever in your favor.
Last year I posted the 13 books in 13 weeks challenge. This year there are 14 weeks between memorial day & labor day so this year's challenge will be 14 books in 14 weeks. Who's in with me this year? These are the 14 I chose off my TBR stack. I only chose books off my actual stack, not my Kindle because I like the visual representation & these take up a lot more room than the hundreds waiting to be read in my Kindle lol 😂 #14Books14weeks. Share..
I feel like we can all relate to this 😂
Reorganizing my various shelves today to (hopefully) have them done by genre. Or at least as close as possible to genre while still working within my shelving space!
I found this secondhand book store today. Sadly, my husband who was with me was in an antsy mood and I didn‘t buy anything. ☹️
I like to re-read this one to start off my reading year.
2018 book hangover is a doozy. I‘ve just finished adding up how many books I bought this year(95%online,may have missed a couple bought in store) and the final total is-🥁- 265!!!😱Excuse me while I go make up a lovely story for the hubby (no sweetie, that bill is a hardware store not a bookstore) #BookHangover2018 #WhatsYourDamage2018
Edit:Forgot to add the ebooks & audiobooks I bought, plus 4 I bought in store at Dymocks, so new total is: 299!
“if it‘s simply that your book reading in no way keeps pace with your book buying, I have good news for you (and for me; I definitely fall into this category): Your overstuffed library isn‘t a sign of failure or ignorance, it‘s a badge of honor.”
This article is very validating to me and I thought some of you may feel the same
I‘m going to try to read all these by the end of November! Woot woot! Don‘t mind my scribble!
(And no, I don‘t want an e-reader! Just let me kvetch, ok?? 😜)
Uh-oh, best of 2018 lists are coming out! My TBR definitely grew with this one. Consider yourself warned. 😂
And then, I still have my heaps of books from BEA last spring. I have read many of the books from that glorious week but these are the remains #tbrmadness
Anyone else who can relate? I have a feeling I‘m not the only one... #booknerdproblems
The story of my life ! 🤯
Terry Fox used book sale today! Was feeling nostalgic and grabbed some of my fave Christopher Pike. Also, love that my teenager picked out as many books as I did!
#13Books13Weeks Final Countdown! How is everyone doing? I started number 13 this evening 😊 I'm actually approaching 30 books for the 13 weeks but to be able to clear 13 off my to be read stack is a great feeling! I can only hope I haven't added more than 13 to the stack during that same time lol 😂😂😂 Either way, I'm going to plan on doing something similar to this again... Goals! And accountability LOL 😉📚📚📚
About yesterday, when I discovered a newfound Goodwill thrift store, went in to browse, not expecting to find anything...My whole new house needs to be a library, or maybe I‘m a book hoarder, or who knows? It makes me happy!
After a few hours sleep, I‘m catching up on the Hr18 #24in48 #readathon Challenge “Whats On Your Nightstand”I don‘t have much of a nightstand,what space I have is taken up with remotes,tissues,water bottles etc & most of my reading is done in my library coz the light in my bedroom is atrocious. What books I have are usually in bed with me(hubby hates it!)or in a tote bag next to my bed where I can reach them. This is the current stack on my bed.
Return one & take out six... Just couldn‘t help myself... 😮😜😬

It‘s that time of the month again....
the time when I look at the pile of books I have started and think, how many of these could I wrap up and finish before the end of the month.
This is a new bookish problem for me, that only started after I joined Litsy and started doing monthly statistics.
Does anyone else do that?🤓
And with that, only 101 more books until I meet my goal!!🎉🎉 This summer I have a few concrete plans other than to Rest, ReEnergize, and READ to my heart‘s content... that goal is as good as completed !!🙌🏻
Ohhhhh, nooooo..... and I was doing so well reading my own books and not buying more! Actually, no. That‘s completely untrue. I fell off the wagon with that library book sale a couple weekends ago. Who am I kidding? Booookssss...booookssss forever...📚📚📚
Found out I got approved for 6 #NetGalley #ARCs this morning!!! My tbr pile is getting out of control & I failed my #NetGalleyTBRAttack miserably 😓 Have to make it my goal to finish them next month! Focus is the key! 😔

And bookshelves. I need more bookshelves.
Do you read one book at a time or several at once? :P
How many of you identify with this kid I saw at the store? 😂🙋♀️
They say a cluttered desk is not a good way to work. Well, I say when it‘s cluttered with books, nothing could be more perfect. 😆 and yes...this is real. 😫#SLUGradStudies #Theology
@MrBook are library desks twice as worse? 😱
