|Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
So as a newbie, I've been amply warned about this forum and the bad influences here, hehe. I'm not sceered though. BUT, just for fun I thought I'd put out all of my 2010 end-of-the-year numbers, to see what the numbers at the end of the year will look like.
WL: 74 total - but only 50 are unique titles
RL: 153 (some of these could be WL, but I haven't moved them yet)
and the ugly truth...Mt.TBR: 264 (140 tbr + 10 ebooks + 114 series books)
Be gentle with me, ladies and gents. My bookshelves are overflowing! LOL!
eta: I meant to welcome you all to post your 2010 ending numbers, so we can all laugh at ourselves and our good intentions next New Years.

My wishlist is always just under 200, my reminder list is at 448, but isn't up to date--I could purge some of those. My TBR--I don't use PBS (or any list) for my TBR but I'm thinking about starting. I just don't know if it's possible to input all those books though (lets just say the number would have 4 digits...).
Okay, my WL is at 42, my RL is at 133, and my TBR pile listed here is 260, but I know I have more books that are not listed. And it doesn't count the books I have stashed on my Kindle.
Now...let's do some math! Between reading paper books, ebooks, and listening to audio books, I read 135 books in 2010.
Nevermind, let's not do math...
My WL hovers just under 200, but probably around 180 unique titles. I don't use the RL. I just cleaned up my TBR and it stands at 140.
In 2010, I read 74 books. I didn't keep track of the audio books. I don't know ... probably a dozen of those.
Okay, this topic made me curious so I took an inventory:
WL -48 with about 19 uniques titles
RL- 111 - many of which I can find at the library
TBR -100 !!!! (but more are on the way!)
BIR - looks like 93
Kindle - 10 definitely to read plus many free downloads of books I'd like to re-read.
Alright, this is what I ended the year with:
WL: 200 (but over 25 are not released yet)
TBR: PBS says 124, but I know there is probably about 100-150 more just sitting on my shelf....these numbers do not include my DD YA books I get for her.
RL: 94 (again...some not released)
I have an EXTENDED WL: 41
I only read 96 books in 2010 (down from 2009).
If I put my numbers here, you'd all sign me up for that "Hoarders" tv show. No way! :-D
I've always had a ridiculous amount of books and titles on wishlists and I don't think that will ever change. I've never been a huge keeper of books though; before PBS, I swapped them at the used book store and donated them to my library.
I will give you just a glimpse into my bookish insanity...I have a wishlist here that is always full, an overflow wishlist here, 2 typed wishlists stored in my pc, two different Amazon wishlists, one at BCO, one at the library, and one at the UBS. I think that is all. No, I forgot the one stored in my Blackberry that I use for books that are heavily posted here and likely to be found at the thrift store. I really think that is the last one.
