Top Ten Tuesday – Books on my TBR the Longest

Posted February 6, 2018 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 16 Comments

I’ve had books on my TBR for years. YEARS. But, since I’m all about particulars, it must be said, that I’m going off of Goodreads stats alone and these are all from 2011 since that’s when I first joined Goodreads. If I’m being honest though, these books have been on my “shelf” for far longer, but let’s just stick to the facts, shall we?

What books have gathered dust bunnies on your shelves?

  1. The only one of these I’ve read are Watership Down and The Thirteenth Tale. Master & Margarita and In Cold Blood have been on my TBR for years too. I haven’t heard of the rest, but they sound interesting.

    I totally know what you mean about having books on your Goodreads TBR, but also having an even older list of mental TBR books.

  2. Ha! I wrote a post like this a couple of years ago – the book that had been gathering dust had been on my shelf for 14 years. Guess what? It’s still on the shelf! 16 years and counting… (although of the other nine books I listed, I have managed to read three).
