Grab a piece of scratch paper and see how you stack up when it comes to your to-be-read (TBR) books!
Scoring: For each “a” answer, you get 3 points. Each “b” is 1 point, and each “c” 2 points.
4 Points or Less: Meg from Little Women
TBR the old-fashioned way has a certain charm. But before your spouse/roommate/cat gets fed up that your TBR piles have spread to the bed/bathroom floor/window ledge, and leaves your sorry, old-fashioned butt, maybe you oughta buy one more bookshelf to house your TBRness.
5–7 Points: Goldilocks
Most of the time, your TBR setup is juuust right. Sure, your dog might chew up your list every now and then, and you might have 17 different lists strewn about the house. But overall, you have a healthy, laidback relationship with your TBR. So just get back to reading, already.
8 Points or More: Hermione Granger
If TBR tracking were an Olympic sport, you would so totally medal. Just don’t admit to any of your bookish friends that sometimes, it’s more fun thinking about what you want to read than it is doing the actual reading.
I love writing book reviews. They help me:
