Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well! It’s Friday so it is time for another addition of Let’s Talk Bookish! Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion. This weeks topic is are big TBRs a result of abibliophobia.
I have to admit, that I did have to google what abibliophobia is, because I had no clue. The official definition of abibliophobia is:
The fear of running out of things to read!
I have learnt something new this week, and it is definitely something I will remember.
Do you have abibliophobia?
I don’t think that I suffer from abibliophobia, because I know there is always more out there to read, especially with my TBR. Because I read a wide variety of genres, there are always new books that I am discovering with elements that really excite me. I also like not to put too much stress into reading, as I think that takes away the fun of reading for me, so if I don’t have anything to read I try not to let it bother me.
Do you add books to your TBR to keep it big, or is it a place where you keep books that seem interesting?
My TBR is always a place for books that I find interesting, I don’t like to add books that I don’t think that I will ever get round to as then it would get out of hand. My TBR is already crazy at 182 books that I own but have not read yet, and that is way too big for my liking. All the books that I purchase are books that I actively want to read in the next couple of months rather than books that I would like to read but don’t have a passion for. I want to make my TBR smaller, but I don’t see that happening any time soon.
Do you have multiple TBRs?
I tend to have a couple of TBRs on the go at any one time as I find it an easy way to keep track of the books I am reading. Each month I have my main TBR, which I post each month which includes all the ARCs and book club books that I need to read each month. I also have a list of books that I would like to get to each month if it is possible. But I am not very strict with my TBR, so I do mood read if I feel myself going into a slump.
Do you think that you possibly suffer from abibliophobia? Do you use a TBR for your reading or are you more of a mood reader? Let me know in the comments below!
