See? Told ya. But I digress. So last night as I was going over the list of the physical books I own, I saw that I still haven’t read a few – okay, a lot – of them (and counting), a few of which I bought years ago. Let’s not include my TBR e-books in this topic; it’ll take time.
What is a TBR Jar?
I did not put all unread titles inside. I already planned on reading those I recently got anyway, particularly the ones I received for review so I should focus on those that have already – or would likely – gather dust (figuratively speaking, of course; I’m very careful when it comes to my books). Others are spin-offs of series I haven’t finished yet so they’re out. And, get this, I have a few ones that are the second or third installment and such in a series I haven’t started nor own a physical copy of the first book (don’t ask). In the end, I put 20! That’s a good number, right?

There they are! Handwritten by yours truly.
As expected, there will always be new books that I will most definitely add in my shelf but I will not include them in my TBR jar unless I have already emptied the first batch. That way, I can ensure that I’ve read all of them before I move on to new ones. Poor babies will think I don’t love them enough because I don’t pay them too much attention.
