Let’s Talk with Smash and Kt – Oh, Dear… Those Shelves!

Let's Talk with Smash and Kt

“Let’s Talk with Smash and Kt” is a weekly discussion meme that happens every Friday.  Having been started by Melissa at I Swim for oceans, it’s been passed on to Smash from Smash Attack Reads and Kt at A Book Obsession.  Every week there’s a different discussion question that’s been posted weeks in advance HERE.  To participate, write, hook up, visit and discuss!!!

This week’s question: “How many books do you own (keepers) and how many are in your to-be-read pile? Feel free to include pictures! (Thank you, Doville!)”


I’m actually not doing too poorly!  My Goodreads inventory is a mess so that’s one task I need to sit down and do.  But here are my various book “piles” scattered around the house.


My first hardcovers – the Harrisons are signed.












 My Read shelves… nothing exciting!!

 My poor TBR pile.  This is why I’ll be slowing down on the review copies next year… hopefully!

Between my hubs and I, we have 270 ebooks on the Kindle.  I can’t tell you more than that because I need to organize my butt!!!

What do your shelves look like?  Do you know your “numbers”?  Let me know, I’m really curious!!!


About Kristin

Kristin has to ensure she gets her minimal requirement of "happily ever after" books in between those books that contain cliffhangers and never-ending story arcs. It's for her family's sake. When not reading, she's homeshooling her 10-year old son, watching cartoons on TV, or taking a nap.

  1. Not bad at all!! I totally need to organize my kindle because I may have thousands in my cloud..oops.. obsession, maybe? Umm, yep, just a little! BUT, I only own about 250 physical books and that’s a rough guess it maybe a lot less, cause I tend to donate, or send them to you 😉 lol

  2. I haven’t the foggiest how many books I own, although, surprisingly enough, not many. If I had to throw a number out there, I would go with fifty, not counting Kindle and Nook. I did just get rid of a lot since Christmas is coming and that is always a motivation for me. I am pretty good about giving books away if I can honestly say that I wouldn’t read them again and the only signed copies that I will not part with are by authors who I am a big fan girl of. It is harder for me to part with hardcovers, but I do.
    Kindle and Nook. I am not so good about deleting them after reading them. They are too easy to store. I will archive them every once in awhile though.

    Wow! It must smell wonderful near your bookshelves. Nothing beats the smell of books! 🙂

    Love those piles! It also makes me feel a bit better about my TBR pile… though I’m not far behind 😉
