Feature & Follow Friday (5)

Hello, book lovers! This is our fifth Follow My Book Blog Friday, hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

If you still haven't joined this party, you should. The rules for participating are actually very simple. Click on the image to learn more.

This week's question:
Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

Hah, you'd be surprised! If I order a book, I always read it as soon as it gets here because I simply can't resist, which means that I only have 6 - the ones that arrived just yesterday.
I do have quite a few e-arcs waiting to be read and reviewed, but I'd really rather not count them. I'll read them soon enough, I always do. ;)

Thanks for stopping by, lovelies. We both love spending fridays with all of you.
See you next week!


  1. I wish I had that! No I have still 200 books I still have to read. And I want this number down.
    Kim's Bookish Place

  2. Wow! Only 6! I wish I had your ability to read straight after getting the book. Of course, it would help if I didn't get so many each month.

    Hope you enjoy them.
    Here's my Follow Friday

  3. Wow that is brilliant I wish I was so disciplined. One of my new years resolutions is to try and clear some of my tbr shelf.

    Thanks for stopping by I'm a new follower too.

  4. I agree, I can not imagine getting a book and not reading it.. honestly and once I start a book I have to finish it, love it or hate it, doesn't matter. For me it's not how many books I have that are unread in my house it's how many books I can refrain from getting.. *grins* thanks for following


  5. 6 is like... honorable. ;) Good job not geting suffocated by pile of books. ;D

    New Follower! Come see my Friday as well! FF & TGIF Numbers & Goals Edition!

  6. Wow, you're like right on those books. Good for you for keeping up. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Old follower. Happy FF.


  7. Wow! That's pretty good! Not having a lot on the TBR pile says a lot! My TBR pile used to be small, than Borders closed and broke my heart and my wallet.

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  8. Wow!!! You may be my new reading hero. I wonder if you have the smallest number today?

  9. I wish I could do that!!! I used to be able to. I'd never have more than 5...then I started buying more and more. :\ LOL

  10. 6 is a good number. Be glad you aren't buried under a pile of books.
    Waiting For Wentworth

  11. I will now aim to have under 10 on my shelf!!! You rock!

  20. SIX? Wow! You're my hero! I'd love to be up to date like that. Old follower! Thanks for stopping by (: Have a great weekend!

  21. Hi you two! Just stopping by to say hi...

    GFC says I don't belong to your blog anymore again.

    We're still friends right? :)

  22. One of these days, I'm gonna be just like that. At least that's what I'm telling myself after I counted all my books this morning.

    Thanks for visiting and following my blog! I followed ya back.

  23. Only 6?! Awesome. Way to go!

    -old follower

  24. WOW! only 6! Great job- I've seen some people with 300!
    Thanks for following! I think I've worked out the rss thing now...
    New follower!

  25. I think that's a good way to handle a TBR pile :D Kudos! Old follow. :D

  26. I'm glad to find someone else with an itty bitty book shelf. I too read the books as fast as I get them although I'm sure if I was fortunate enough to get ARC's I'd be further behind! Thanks for hopping by! New Follower!

  27. Lucky you! I was up to date but then got nearly 30 new ones for my birthday/Xmas last month - plus I grabbed a few from NetGalley now I have around 30 to get through!

  28. I'm the same way. I think that I held on to my Bloodlines book until just recently and then I caved and read it. I typically only buy books that I REALLY want. In which case, I read then within a day.

  29. That is fantastic! You have a lot of discipline! :)

  30. I have an ebook hoarding problem, which is why I have so many ebooks. My physical book pile jumped recently with Christmas and some ARCs, otherwise it's always been manageable.
    Thanks for stopping by!

    You have a beautiful blog, by the way.

    Following you back.

  32. I'm kind of envious of your TBR pile :)

    I'm a new follower & in love with your blog name. Very cool!

  33. Wow! I wish I could read books as soon as they arrive! I have a habit of ordering them and then putting them on my shelf. lol! Happy FF!

  34. Hopping through. Great job on reading books when you get them. I need to be more like that.
    My Hop

  35. I wish I could read the books as soon as I get them, but I tend to overload with books. *Sigh*
    Great job though on keeping up with your reading. 6 books isn't that bad at all. I hope to be like that one day.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    New Follower. =)

  36. Well, I really like your header too! =) It is very nice and professional looking.

    Thanks for stopping by and for the add. I have added you back.

  37. oh wow. you totally shamed me. i wouldn't know what to do with myself if my TBR shelf was only 6 books!

  38. Only 6? Good that you have it under control! I must look really crazy with a few shelves of unread books! I like to have options on what to read next!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
