Feature & Follow Friday (5)

Hello, book lovers! This is our fifth Follow My Book Blog Friday, hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

If you still haven't joined this party, you should. The rules for participating are actually very simple. Click on the image to learn more.



This week's question:
Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

Hah, you'd be surprised! If I order a book, I always read it as soon as it gets here because I simply can't resist, which means that I only have 6 - the ones that arrived just yesterday.
I do have quite a few e-arcs waiting to be read and reviewed, but I'd really rather not count them. I'll read them soon enough, I always do. ;)

Thanks for stopping by, lovelies. We both love spending fridays with all of you.
See you next week!
Maja

  2. Wow! Only 6! I wish I had your ability to read straight after getting the book. Of course, it would help if I didn't get so many each month.

    Hope you enjoy them.
    Here's my Follow Friday

  3. Wow that is brilliant I wish I was so disciplined. One of my new years resolutions is to try and clear some of my tbr shelf.

  4. I agree, I can not imagine getting a book and not reading it.. honestly and once I start a book I have to finish it, love it or hate it, doesn't matter. For me it's not how many books I have that are unread in my house it's how many books I can refrain from getting.. *grins* thanks for following

  7. Wow! That's pretty good! Not having a lot on the TBR pile says a lot! My TBR pile used to be small, than Borders closed and broke my heart and my wallet.

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  10. 6 is a good number. Be glad you aren't buried under a pile of books.

  26. I think that's a good way to handle a TBR pile :D Kudos! Old follow. :D

  27. I'm glad to find someone else with an itty bitty book shelf. I too read the books as fast as I get them although I'm sure if I was fortunate enough to get ARC's I'd be further behind! Thanks for hopping by! New Follower!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lucky you! I was up to date but then got nearly 30 new ones for my birthday/Xmas last month - plus I grabbed a few from NetGalley recently....so now I have around 30 to get through!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm the same way. I think that I held on to my Bloodlines book until just recently and then I caved and read it. I typically only buy books that I REALLY want. In which case, I read then within a day.

  30. That is fantastic! You have a lot of discipline! :)

  31. I have an ebook hoarding problem, which is why I have so many ebooks. My physical book pile jumped recently with Christmas and some ARCs, otherwise it's always been manageable.

  36. I wish I could read the books as soon as I get them, but I tend to overload with books. *Sigh*
    Great job though on keeping up with your reading. 6 books isn't that bad at all. I hope to be like that one day.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
