Book Guilt

I have a bit of a problem, I keep acquiring more books in mount TBR but I feel like I’m not making much of a dent in it at all. I feel guilty that I’m not reading them quickly enough and yet they still keep multiplying.

Mount TBR

What am I to do?  The picture is of the physical books, I am not sure I even know how many unread books there are on the kindle. I use Goodreads in order to record what I have read, but how to make a real and lasting dent in the backlog? What are your hints and tips? Let’s make this a positive experience and not something else that will cause me anxiety.  At least this is manageable anxiety and pretty small in the scheme of things.

Talk to me, how do you deal with your to be read piles? How do you manage your reading time? Do you set yourself targets?

I’m feeling judged by my tiny unicorn buddies.
