Follow My Book Blog Friday(FF3) vs. Book Blogger Hop(BBH 2): HOP TO THE DEATH

Agh!!!!!  I live in California--It's not Friday yet!!!!  But somehow the hops have already started!!!

Wow...when they say quick like a bunny, I guess they mean it!!!
So, before I get hopping, I think I should mention how absolutely
I was that ParaJunkee asked me to be her Friday Follow Feature Blogger!!!!!!!!

Follow Friday is a weekly meet and greet meme hosted by ParaJunkee, where all us awesome bloggers can hop around, introduce ourselves, and meet each other.

And there are a lot of us, so I better hop to it!!!
I can't wait to meet you all!!!!!!

Book Blogger HopBut first....

This is my second time 'round the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books...
And I'm saying it again, last week was more like a marathon than a hop--But I want to try and visit as many blogs as I can, because I have been absolutely amazed by everybody out there!!!!

This week's Blogger Hop question:  How many books are on your TBR shelf?

I actually had no idea how many books I've put on my TBR list, so I went over to check.  Don't judge me; ok?

  • My goodreads "To Read" shelf = 204 books
  • Barnes&Noble ebook wishlist =153
  • Barnes&Noble regular wishlist (ie. books that I wish were ebooks) =36
  • My Nook?  Give or take 600 books.
  • Netgalley = 12 books?
  • Actual books on my desk, right now, that I haven't read???= 8

When I do the math, this comes out to somewhere around, 1,000 books...which might be ambitious, but I don't think is completely unrealistic (for a lifetime).

It's also probably a smidge on the high side.  I definitely know that some of my goodreads and BN books have some overlap.  As for my Nook, I have A LOT of classics on there that I've never gotten around to, along with some overlap with the other lists.  But I must admit that my list has been growing exponentially ever since I discovered book bloggers--I've never felt more current, up-to-date, and behind on my reading and books as I have lately.  Isn't it exhilarating????

All I can say is, good thing I'm a quick reader!!!!

How about you guys?  Or am I just crazy for wanting to read everything?

Thanks for hopping by, everybody!!!!  Hope you all have a great hop and a fantabulous weekend!!!!  Oh, and Happy Friday, of course!!!!!  ;)

Congrats on being the featured blogger of the week! I'm a new follower :)

A thousand books is a LOT to read, but why not, right? ;) I wish to read over a thousand books in my lifetime as well :) Just think of all the knowledge you'll pick up from all of them!

Have a great weekend!

Thanks everyone for stopping by!!!

@Erica --Good luck to both of us!!! I don't think I'm too far off, I know, as a kid, I picked up hundreds of SWEET VALLEY alone--not to mention stealing my mom's and sister's romance books--coming from a family of avid readers, I think I've got a good start...It just there's always more I want to read *sigh* ;)

Hi, I'm just stopping by for the blog hop. To answer your question I also feel like I have to read everything and with new books coming out I'm never going to be able to read everything.:)

Hi! Thanks so much for visiting my blog earlier. Your TBR pile sounds like it's a huge one! It's good to have a supply of books, though. But I'm sure it can get overwhelming!

Have a great weekend.

Just stopping by for the hop! Thanks for visiting my site! I agree that on my actual list, its really low 63 compared to others, but in reality its probably ten times more than that. But I also read fast, so hopefully I will be able to get ahead, maybe...it might take alot of time but I am sure it is possible. lol

Have a great weekend!

Jenn said...

Alissa said...

Grats on being the featured blogger this week! :D

I'm actually sort of glad that I don't have a Nook or Kindle, because it prevents me from getting backed up on reading e-books too. I can only imagine the long list I'd have, then!

Steph said...

Hi, I started following you a few weeks ago. I wanted to congratulate you on being featured. It really turned the tide for my blog when I was featured.

My tbr pile would be much bigger also if I included all the books I want rather then just all the book I have. Alas I want way to many lol.

Happy weekend!

The1stdaughter said...

Wow! I'm really thinking I am a huge slacker when it comes to my TBR pile with only around 75-100. But of course, for me, that only includes the books actually on my physical shelves. Thank goodness! Or I'd probably be right up there with you! :o)

Congrats on your feature with Parajunkee! And thanks so much for stopping by my site earlier!
