Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday -My TR List and My Favorite Genre

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books. It's a great way to meet other bloggers and learn more about the ones you already follow.

Book Blogger Hop


This week's question is:

“How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”

According to my Goodreads profile, I currently have 59 books on my To Read list. I try to keep it somewhat realistic and only include the books that I plan on reading in the near future.  There are many books that I know I will read eventually, such as some classics, but I don't include those on there.

How long is your TR pile?

Another weekly meme that I participate in regularly is Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee.

 
This week's question is:
 
Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

I read books of all genres, but my favorite has always been mystery. It all started with The Nancy Drew Series when I was younger, and I eventually started reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, and some Raymond Chandler.

What's your favorite genre? Any other mystery authors I should know about?
Love and (a book) light,

~Dorothy

  1. Goodreads is pretty handy, that's how I keep track of my tbr. Although, it's mingled with books I'd like to own too. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I don't think I could come up with a definate number. I add books onto Goodreads that I find online, but I have a tonne of books in my bookshelves at home that aren't on that list. Too many, let's leave it at that!

  3. Hi there new follower here, love your blog! :)

    Mystery is a great genre, and Nancy Drew is the best.

  4. Hopping by from the Hop!

    My list is disgustingly long! But my pile is little! I just replenish it after I read a few.

  8. My TBR list has gotten a little out of hand. I think that I'm going to need to cull it and make a list of books that I plan on reading this year - because as it stands I have enough books to get me through a few years!

    I'm your newest follower from the hop! Have a great weekend.

  11. I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

    Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

    Stressful, right?

    Wrong!

    Hop on over to my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net and find out why.
