Ye Olde TBR Files –

I now have several books on my systems (Kindle, Audible on Mac and iPad) which have been sitting there for awhile (more than 3 months) and I’d like to get them gone. I’d like to get rid of 1 book a month. Mostly they’re long books but I have started them all. These are the books and the order I’d read them going from most to least anticipated. They’re about 1/2 and 1/2, fiction and nonfiction and they are all Audible except for 3 for which I also have Kindle versions. Meanwhile I’ll keep up with my regular reading but one of my 12 or so books will be an old one from the TBR file.

The Transformation of Virginia by Rhys Isaac (K & PB) – currently reading slowly
A Strangeness in My Mind by Orhan Pamuk (K & A)
Russka by Edward Rutherford (K & A)
The Dying Grass by William Vollmann (K & A)
The Frontiersmen by Allan W. Eckert (A)
Histories by Herodotus (A)
Crashes and Crises by Connel Fullenkamp (A)
The Great Train Robbery by Michael Crichton (A)
All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque(A)

I’ve had a TBR pile since Amazon did free shipping for 5 books (before Kindles) – I’d buy extras. Then, after I got started on Kindle and Audible, I didn’t have a TBR file for a long time because I bought as I read. Then came the sales and I was good for awhile but the last year or so it’s caught up with me and now – voila – me too. (Note – I still have about 85 books in my old hard cover and paperback TBR pile – they just sit over there and collect dust. I don’t count them as a TBR pile because I know I won’t read them – they’re DNGT (Did Not Get To).
