How big is your TBR?

Just curious because I have ... a lot I want to read and surely I'm not alone!  :D

I currently have:
* 29 books I've either received or bought in my shelf/on my desk/on my bed in booksleeves
* a number of review e-copies (I review books for two blogs - my own (and associated bookstagram lol) and a big one called The Nerd Daily!)
* 8 physical library books
* 3 borrowed from my step-grandma
* a fair few unread on my kindle
* over 100 on my reading lists across the eLibrary apps

Fair to say I may be ... overbooked (badum tss) 😂

I'm kind of ashamed at how many books I have to read..... That's why i'm now on a book buying ban....

I have around 58 books on my shelf to read. About half of them I got from second hand book sales that recently came up in my area and I went kind of crazy on the books. I also have 4 books from the library to read, and around 20 on my kindle.

I don't even want to count. For one thing, it would take too long.

Hmm, perhaps 21?

Week 1 Readings, Subject 1
Week 1 Readings, Subject 2
Week 1 Readings, Subject 3
Week 2 Readings, Subject 1

And it kind of continues like that.

Beyond that, I did happen to realise I have no books I'm currently trying to read, as I seemed to have finished them all then stopped finding more so thanks to this thread for pushing me to read a bit more! From that I started looking for books to keep me going, and I have now have three in my TBR:

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari (I froth non-fiction)
The Jungle by Upton Sinclair (I'm ready to be sad)
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (not normally my type but it was recommended to be in 2015, it's perhaps about time I fulfill my promise to read it)

I buy a book -> I read it before buying another one

so I guess my tbr is 0?

there are books I'm interested in but I don't have a list for future buys/borrows
