The topic for this week introduced me to a term I had never heard of before, and that is abibliophobia, which is the fear of running out of reading material.
Do you have abibliophobia?
I would say that I don’t, and there is a level of privilege that comes with that. As you may have seen from previous posts, I have two TBR carts. I am also from Canada, so I have access to a library. There has never been a time where I worried that I couldn’t get my hands on a book, which is not the case for many people around the world. That is an entirely differently conversation, but I thought it was important to acknowledge.
Do you have multiple TBRs?
I do! My physical TBR is much different from the one I have on Goodreads. I put more thought into the books that I purchase, but I am constantly adding books to my Goodreads one. This is a great reminder that I have to continue my series where I remove books from my Goodreads “want to read” list. I also want to create a shelf on Goodreads of the books that are on my physical TBR, but that just seems extremely time-consuming!
Do you add books to your TBR to keep it big, or is it a place where you keep books that seem interesting?
I actually wish both of my TBRs were smaller! I am someone who can become overwhelmed when I have too many choices. Before I starting blogging, I never had more that 5-10 physical books on myTBR, but that has definitely changed. Most of the books that I own are ones I have researched before purchasing or I found them for a good price/for free.
My Goodreads TBR is a place where I add any book that piques my interest in the slightest. I come across so many new books in a day, so it is easy to just click that “Want to Read” button so I can refer to it later.
Do you have abibliophobia? How do you keep track of the books you want to read?
