Spelling Out the Blog with the TBR

For the uninitiated, TBR means – To Be Read. It’s a list that readers have of the books sitting on our shelves, on our bedside tables, or in piles all over the house which we are yet to read. My TBR is a work in progress –never ending, always growing.

As a reader, I like to read book reviews. It helps me discover new gems and new authors that I may not have come across before. It also adds considerably to my TBR. Currently there is a meme going around which involves spelling out the name of your blog using book titles from your TBR. Straight away I thought, how cool. This will be fun.

So here is the name of my blog, spelled out in book titles from my TBR. All of these books are currently sitting on one of my bookshelves, waiting patiently to be read. The words “the” and “a” at the beginning of a title don’t count.  I thought that V might be a challenge, but it turned out that I had two titles to choose from. Of course, there are plenty more books sitting on my TBR, but I have tried to select from a range of authors. Who knows, I might get to some of these books this year, or maybe they will still be on the TBR this time next year.
