Today’s topic is inspired by an old October 2019 Let’s Talk Bookish prompt hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion! Since I was not a blogger around this time so I decided that I would take a stab at it today!
Hope you enjoy this discussion!
Let me start by saying that you do not need a TBR to be a reader. Whether you use one or not is up to you! No one else can tell you whether or not to use one! I use TBRs, and I enjoy using them a lot!
What are TBRs?
TBRs stand for To be Read. TBRs are a list of books that you want to read in the future.
You can have TBRs that stick to a time limit. For example, I do monthly TBRs, but sometimes I do get off schedule just a bit.
You can also have one big TBR list that contains all the books you want to read without a time limit.
- Help you keep track of books that you are interested in
- Gives you a variety of books to choose from
- Helps you to pick out books for tags or TBR posts or books for challenges you are participating in
- Helps you plan out what books you want to get done when
It’s like a book checklist where you check off books when you finish them and plan dates when you want certain books read by.
- Can add too many books to the TBR and end up not getting to most of them
- Can be discouraging and stop reaching readers to hitting their goals
- Can easily get off your schedule and get behind
- The books can easily rack up and if you have a book tours or arcs that have to be read by a certain date, you may end up never getting to them
