Initially, to start off 2019, I was going to make an actual TBR jar. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a jar where you put down all the names of your unread books and randomly pick one to read. I realized this would take a lot of time to make. From cutting up the paper to writing the names down, I just don’t have the time to do that since I start school on Monday. So instead I made a “virtual” one, which is a spreadsheet. It was so quick and I love that I know the exact number of unread books on my shelves (it currently stands at 87). To select a book, I’m just going to use a random number generator. It’s not as pretty as a jar would be, but it sure is practical.
I’m so excited to have created this. I may even edit it later on to add more information like the date I received a book. I think it will be fun to see how this goes this year. Since I read multiple books at a time, my plan is to have one of my currently readings come from this jar.
Have you ever made a TBR jar? How did it go? Let me know in the comments!
