|why yes, I do believe I'll hop!|
I always look forward to the Hop, even if it means I spend a bit too much time noodling around online. I think it's great that Jennifer always hosts -- and it's her 5-year anniversary today, so stop on over and leave her a nice little message, okay?
This weekend might not have as much hopping for me -- I'm working tomorrow, and have family plans for Sunday ..... but I'm still going to go around and visit as much as I can.
This week's question is: "How many books are currently in your TBR (to-be-read) pile?" Um.... maybe I should just count what's physically in the library bag right now, which is 8. I used to keep an Excel spreadsheet of what I wanted to read and it got to about 2000 books before I stopped adding to it. Now, I just try to manage things through my library account, putting things on hold for myself and making a few notes. I will say this --- being a librarian is both a blessing and a curse if you're a book addict like myself. I manage certain parts of the collection (meaning -- I order books) and that means I'm always looking at Publisher's Weekly, Booklist, Library Journal, and a ton of other review sources. Which means .... I am always seeing what shiny, new books are coming out. Add to that all of the great books I hear about from book bloggers and it's easy to see how my TBR list could get completely overgrown and out of control. I just try to stay on top of it.
Have a great weekend, everyone!!!
