Musing Mondays

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about tbr books.

TBR--for you non book bloggers is "To Be Read"

Where do you keep the books on the top of the tbr pile? Not the bunk of the mountain, but just the tip of the peak – the ‘almost up to’ books?

It's funny because my "tip of the peak" pile, my "almost up to" pile is just in my head.

I can count 3 book shelves in the family room, 2 in the living room, (plus two baskets of books), 3 in my bedroom, 1 in the red-room (not including my children's library shelves in the closet), 2 or 3 in the other bedroom. Some books are even in the garage, some on my bedside table... but the ones on top of my TBR pile are---in my head.
I have a couple of book club books always at the top of the pile, since we meet once a month to discuss those.
I know I always have those waiting to be read, then I have a mystery in my mind and also books from the library, which I know I need to get thru because of a "due date", and then a children's novel, and 1 or 2 that are "just because I want to" to be read.

And they are all my mind.

Now, I'll probably be obsessing about a place to put them. ~smiles~

Great post, I have 4 different books that I'm in the middle of reading and I just leave them all over the house, one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom, one in the living room, so what book I'm reading totally depends on where I am ;)

I keep my immediate to be reads in my bedroom away from my other books, for all the good it does my. I'm forever shifting them around.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one in the world with multiple places for books. for years I had my kids books in the linen closet. Great place for them. No bending down to look for titles., but then again the towels were in baskets in the bathroom. Isn't it wonderful that we can have so many.
