One Monday in March…

I spent last week out-of-town,  gathering with far-flung family–sharing morning coffee, antics in the kitchen, much laughter, many hugs, some tears, lots of great food, precious memories and abounding joy. There is a part of my soul that can be filled no other way.

Sitting down here to talk about books is a soothing, comforting way to ease my aches of missing the above mentioned family…distance is a heart breaker sometimes. However, life is so good…

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about tbr books.

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?

Oooh boy…the TBR(to-be-read) pile in my house begins at the big basket where I put my library stack–notice I say that’s where the pile begins… it becomes a trickle, then a trail about the house.

The books I am reading at the moment are usually found on the arm of the couch, on the coffee table, on the end table, on my bed, in my hand…and so it goes. I don’t really have my TBR pile organized as to what’s next in line, although I do try to get the 7 day or 14 day library books to the top of the heap.


Speaking of my TBR stack… I thought I’d list a few of them–in no particular order, as I’m excited about each of them–there’s not one book that looks ‘ho-hum’ in my stacks at the moment–whoot!

I am currently reading–about to finish– The Invisible Circus by Jennifer Egan. I recently read a short story called ‘Safari’ by this author–I’m not sure where, probably the Saturday Evening Post…wait, no…the  New Yorker, that’s where it was.  Anyway, I enjoyed it and went in search of more. So far, so good.

A few of those waiting nearby:

*The Camel Bookmobile by Masha  Hamilton— this one came into my stacks via my reading a review of another book by this author.(the title escapes me and it’s >>>in the other room)  After googling, I was intrigued, so I went amongst the library shelves to find said reviewed book and ended up with this one as well.

*Beach Trip by Cathy Holton–jumped off the shelf into my hands by merit of the title and cover art alone.  I’m up for it, yes I am.

*Have A Little Faith by Mitch Albom— I like Mitch. I really liked The Five People You Meet In Heaven.

*Rainwater by Sandra Brown— I can always depend on Ms. Brown for a good read.

This Monday in March is windy and rainy…while any time is a good time to read, such days really fit the bill!

  1. I agree that those library books have to rise to the top of the pile, or O would owe a fortune in fines.
    Now why I am going to the library, when I already have so many books unread is another question.

  2. My books aren’t really organized in any particular order either. Although I can see why library books have to go to the top. I loved The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Great book!
