I’ve been so MIA these days. For essentially the last three weeks, my house has been invaded by painters, tile guys, and carpenters. Of course there were delays, and things took far longer than expected, and for a while it looked as though the carpenters would be having Thanksgiving dinner with us. But finish they did, at 4pm the day before Thanksgiving. Phew. Not like we were cutting it close or anything, ending a fairly major remodeling project a mere 20 hours before we had 21 guests over for dinner.
That being said, the carpenters did a beautiful job. One of the things we added to our living room was a bookcase–my new favorite spot in the house.
What’s great is that I was finally able clear off some of my other shelves (which were two and three rows deep with books). So now I have not just a TBR pile, but an entire TBR bookcase.
That’s got to be at least fifty books there. . . I love how one of the TBR books is 1-2-3 Magic, Effective Discipline for Children 2-12. Given the state of my two year-old these days, I’m thinking I might want to break that out sooner rather than later. And yes, that is Twilight over there in the upper right corner. I keep picking it up but never seem to be in the right frame of mind to start it. And a couple of these books I received for free at the RWA conference, and sometimes those end up being the best surprises. No expectations, I can just dive in without any idea of what they’re about.
How about you? What’s the state of your TBR pile these days? Got anything good in there I should know about?
