State of my TBR and What’s On My Desk

July 22nd, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books

I was tagged last month by Ms. Bookish but my wireless was not working on my desktop so I couldn’t get my pictures off my camera.  Finally got it up and running today so here we go.  It’s a little (ok a lot) embarrassing after seeing how clean other people’s desks were.  It drives my husband crazy whenever he needs to use my desk for anything.  Thank goodness most of the time I’m working on my work laptop otherwise I’m sure my desk would drive me nuts too.

Grab a camera and take a photo of your desk! Or anywhere you stack your books/TBR pile. And no tidying!

Add this photo to your blog.

Tag at least 5 people!

Come back here and leave a link back to your photo in the comments section.

That’s it.

So I have piles of books all over the house so I’m only posting pictures of the biggest stacks. The shelves in my bedroom:



and my desk has the books I need to read and review as well as my library books:


I have to admit I have a new pile on the floor by my desk that I didn’t take a picture of but to be fair they came in recently so they weren’t there when I was first tagged :)

So here are the people I’m tagging:

    wow…that’s scary! lol. I can’t imagine having all of that. The height of the piles seem so daunting! good luck wading through those piles xD

    I know and my daughter always ends up knocking the piles over as she gets out of the bed. Need to start reading faster or relocate the books :)

    Ah, I love these posts because they make my book stacks seem ok, if maybe not quite normal. :O) Happy reading!

    I love looking at other peoples books, so thanks for sharing! I am in the midst of cleaning up my book shelves… I purged, too, which was very necessary! I might have to post pictures when I am done.

    Pam-lol, I hope I’m not the only one. My husband thinks I’m crazy.

    Kailana-you should do a before and after picture

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only one making piles and piles! Mine are on my desk, I’m completely building a wall of books to read! I posted about this a couple weeks ago, too! :)

  7. Jenn's Bookshelf

    HA! Ok, I’ll take a picture of my TBR piles and shelves this weekend. I get rid of books after I’ve read them, so I have about 4 shelves and several stacks containing TBR books!

  8. Kayla

    My goodness woman!!
    That looks like a miniature version of my room! Lmao.
    That is definitely a lot of books :D

  9. dsuzuki

    I know, I know. Hangs head in shame (not really but I tell my husband I’ll be good) :)

    I love it! This looks a lot like my house! The piles can be intimidating but books are so awesome. I do try to at least have a system, although probably no one else would understand it. :)

    I was tagged for this recently but hadn’t done it yet so I took my photos as soon as I got your comment on my blog. Thanks for including me too! It’s so interesting to see how other book lovers do things and I’m so glad I’m not alone with my stacks and shelves of books. I’ll get mine posted soon and put a link here too.

    I had to show this to The Hubs, because he says I leave books “all over the place”. He’ll never bother me again!! Thanks for sharing — love it.
    Have a great day. Happy reading.

    Wrighty-at least you have a system. Not me beyond books for review go on my desk and other books goes to the pile in the room :)

    Lorie-glad to be of help. LOL.

  13. Michelle

    Is it sad that I’m trying to see the titles of all your books to see what I might want to add to my pile? It’s an illness I tell you!

    I’ll be posting my pic this weekend, maybe even after I go for my weekly pilgrimage and add to my already burgeoning pile. :)

  14. dsuzuki

    Haha…Michelle I was doing the same with other people’s pictures!

    Ho-ly crap! First of all, I am insanely jealous of you owning The Black Parade. :) Ever since your review I’ve been dying for a copy. And, secondly:…wow. Lol, that’s a hell of a lot of books, girl! I probably own about that many…it took a lot of shelf organizing and careful stacking to make it look semi-OK.

  16. dsuzuki

    Jessica-you should buy at least the electronic copy of The Black Parade!
