Book Blogger Hop #2

August 13 - 16, 2010
hosted by Crazy Jenniferwww.crazy-for-books.com
 It's that time again to do the HOP so here's this week's question :

How many books are on your "to be read" shelf?

When I read that this was the question of the week, I found myself staring at my computer screen laughing (you'll see why in a minute) A second later and mid snort the hysteria past and I found myself in a blind panic. I think the next few photos will explain my reactions :
(click on title for more)


Exhibit A - My bedside dresser

Although it isn't the 6 stacked piles that it has been, it doesn't look too bad does it? There have been times where my hubby and I were fearful for our lives because this pile grew so out of control, each time we passed it or even breathed, we worried we would get buried alive if it tumbled. This is pretty mild and looks pretty easy to count and keep track of.



But wait, there's more...

Exhibit B - the two double sided video racks of books in what I fondly call the Obsession Room.

This is where things get crazy and where those reactions came from. Would you believe that I still have 4 other filled bookshelves and another just started? Now not all the books in this photos are on my TBR shelf but I would say the majority are. I laughed because there are just so many. I lost count a long time ago and much to the confusion of my hubby, keep adding to it. My thought is that I never know what I'm in the mood to read so it's always good to have a selection. Again I laugh because hello??? If I can't find something to read from this pile, something is seriously wrong. The blind panic came from "Crap, I'm going to have to count all these so I can give an honest answer" I started but after losing count and having to restart a few times, I decided that this was my answer for the week...

I have ALOT !!!

Hope everyone enjoys their weekends and happy reading :D
