I have been struggling lately. I feel like I am drowning in books to read otherwise known as TBR. I find myself losing enthusiasm for reading because I have put myself on a schedule that I will read books in a certain order. I personally have to do this to some degree because as a book blogger – I make commitments to have certain books read by a certain time.
Yet what about the in-between? I find myself trying to put myself on a rigorous schedule, and it’s draining the life out of me. I am starting to recognize that I need a more organic approach to appease to my creative side. I realize I need to give myself a break! Reading needs to be fun. Turning it into a task, is just not going to work for me.
I am going to break free from my schedule and make more time to read what appeals to me just because – not because I have scheduled it. I am also seriously considering getting a TBR jar from Novel Heartbeat. I do have some books that I have received for giveaways that I need to read out of respect to the publishers that gave them to me. So there are lots of options to taming the TBR.
How do you tame yours?
