{Day 11} TBR Shelf: How Many?

I actually stopping marking TBR on Goodreads, it just got too out of control and it wasn’t like I was following it. I also now consider my TBR only books that I have in my possession and then of course their is the TBB (To Be Bought or Buy) Shelf, which are not in my possession.

But back to the TBR shelf.

Any math whizzes reading this. Let’s figure out this equation.

I have 9 sections of my bookshelf that have on them, books I have not read yet. Each section holds an average of 20 books across. But five of those sections have been “doubled.” Meaning there are two rows of books on each section. So, let’s figure this out together. 18 x 9 is about 180, but if 5 of those shelves are doubled that adds another 100 books. So on average I probably have about 250 books on my TBR shelf, give or take. I say this because some of the shelves aren’t doubled fully…whereas some even have books shoved on the tops. I need to organize better.

How many books are on your TBR Shelf?
