Throwback Thursday 2011 Summary

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while which looks at those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves that we haven't got round to reading yet. I've spent quite a few Thursdays looking at books I own but haven't read and I thought it would be fun to look back over those books I've highlighted and see how good I've been at actually reading them!

So to summarise 35 books highlighted and only 2 read in that time. That's useless! I really need to raid my TBR pile more often...luckily one of the challenges I've signed up for this year is the 2012 TBR pile Reading Challenge so all these can go into the list of ones to read in the coming year.

What books have you had on your TBR pile for far too long? :-)


  1. Lol, ok this made me laugh a bit ;) Better luck next year. The TBR will hopefully help me too

  2. You haven't read Mind Games yet!?
    Go read it now! It's awesome!

    I still have Book of Moons by Rosemary Edghill in my TBR-pile. Really should read that one or give it away as I've had it for years and years.

  3. According to goodreads, my TBR is 500+ books, it's awful. I'm thinking of setting myself a personal challenge to reduce it a bit.
