Tell Me Something Tuesday: Cutting Back that TBR Pile


Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where Rainy discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. 

Have you found a way to cut back significantly on your TBR pile?

Oooo the dreaded TBR pile. So many books....so little time. 

I still have a LOT on my TBR pile, but I have been able to keep it lower than in the past. How? A couple of good reasons:

- If something has sat for sooooo long and I don't own the book, I remove it from the pile. 
- Make a point and case to read at least 1 book a month that has been collecting dust on the pile
- DNFing some of those eh books I've tried more than once
- Not adding more. Simple enough, but when I only have a slight interest...don't add it. 

These are just some tips that have helped me.

Ah yeah. Taking the ones off the list you don't actually own helps a lot. I have a TON of those currently. Oy!

Me too! I should go through again.
