My Worst Nightmare

Or in my case, "It's tragic. She only had 50 books left in her TBR pile." Oh who am I kidding? Like I'm ever going to be able to whittle down my book collection that much....

*wheezing* Oh man, oh man!!!! *giggling*

Amy said...

LOL

Yeah, that's what I was thinking -- only 50 books??

I've made the executive decision to clear make some space on my TBR some time next week, probably the weekend. John and I are going down to the nearby storage rental place (climate controlled, thankyouverymuch), and I'm going to get a small one for my TBR.

Pray for me...

Um... amy? is that picture your actual, honest to goodness TBR pile?




*is scared*

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Yeah, having only fifty would be nice.

Amy said...

Yes, it is. I'm a book addict. Embarassing, eh? Of course, I live in an apartment, so space is very limited, even though, by apartment standards, it's a good-sized place.

Oh, and I'm horrible at housekeeping.

Fifty books in my TBR would be an awesome accomplishment. So not going to happen. Just when I think I've got a grip on things, reality steps in and slaps me.
And I must, must, must stop going to Goodwill and the Thrift Store. Is there medication for this problem? Is it called Prozac?

CindyS said...

Sorry, Nikki, Prozac won't help ;)

I would have a panic attack if I only had 50 books in my TBR pile and would immediately liquidate all my assets and BUY!!!

Amy - can you be away from your books? When we moved I had to box mine all up and they were stored in a walk in closet for about 6 months. I get very antsy if I can't walk up to my books and look through them whenever I want.

Might want to make sure you have access 24/7 ;)

Cuffs...get to it...whats with this 50 book shite?

Amy said...

LOL Cindy, that will be the first question I ask -- can I get into my place any time I want. I'm also thinking of other options with bookshelves and using wall space for mounted bookshelves on the walls and such.

If I ever get to the point where my TBR pile is under 50 books, I will be in a dark depression. My pile keeps me going.

azteclady said...

And to think that until this year (I blame lisabea) my TBR pile was under twenty books...

Oh - that is SO us isn't it!!! Thanks for the belly laugh!

Wendy,

I am so there - I'll never get through my TBR pile. I just start making a dent and I hit a bookstore and add another tower. *Sigh* Oh, well! I shall strive to carry on... :0)

I agree - worst nightmare ever. LOL

Wasn't there a Twilight Zone where this guy survived the apocalypse next to the NY library but his glasses broke? That's scary stuff right there. LOL
