Do you keep all your unread books together, like books in a waiting room? Or are they scattered throughout your shelves, mingling like party-goers waiting for the host to come along?
I’ve always kept all of my unread books together wherever I am. I don’t know why; I just think they should be separate! When I was younger and had a tiny TBR stack, I used to keep it on my bed next to my pillow since I didn’t have a nightstand. That way I could just grab whatever was next. I ran out pretty frequently in those days! Then it migrated to next to my bed because it kept falling over. And then it moved across the room and multiplied because I couldn’t get to my bed anymore! Now I have a mountain range along the side of my room. I don’t have space on the shelves for the books I read, either, so they go in stacks next to the bookshelves. This is in my parents’ house. I’m not sure how things are going to go when I move in with Keith later this year given that he has no bookshelves, but we’ll figure it out somehow. Regardless, reads and unreads are always separated. I like to see what I have to read at a glance!
Do you mix up your reads and unreads or do you separate them like me?
