Let's start with ...
How I found out about TBR Jars
I follow all kinds of people on Instagram, but some of my fav "book" Insta-people, is that what they're called? Instagram accounts is just so boring. IDK, but these are the people you might want to follow if you like looking at pretty, creative book pics!
Each cluster of four is ONE account.
@bookwormboutique and @grownupfangirl
@ohthebookfeels and @bookscapades
@ursula_uriarte and @_bookishneo_
@_halfbl00dprincess and @youngadultbookaddict
Whew! I had no idea I followed so many, and I'm not even sure if these are all the ones I follow but I just love all of their stuff!
I actually ordered some things from @bookwormboutique and I can't wait for it to get here!! They're doing free INTERNATIONAL shipping until Aug 12th, but you have to go through the link in their Insta profile, so check them out!
Maybe six months ago some of these people or book bloggers I follow started posting their TBR lists and jars, etc. I just KNEW I wanted a TBR jar for my shelf.
I don't have pics of HOW I made mine because it's pretty self explanatory. Find a cute container; I just used a mason jar because we have an over abundance of those and they're easy to craft with. Stamped my TBR JAR card and tied it on with some pretty ribbon and tulle. All things tulle, I'm telling you. You should see my tulle collection, you can never have enough tulle.
Write It DownI actually made a list of all the books I needed to read from the library, a current book challenge and other miscellaneous books that are calling my name.
That's what the different papers represent. I have several Twilight books that I've picked up at garage sales and the goodwill to craft with so I decided that would be a fun one to tear up and use for scraps!
Then I just toss them in and shuffle them around. I try to switch between all three evenly and I do keep a running list of the books I have to read by a certain date for whatever reason. Don't want to end up with a book due before I'm done with it. I hate when that happens.
I actually haven't emptied the jar yet because there are always books to be read, but I imagine if by some miracle I do empty it I'll go through my list of books from Amazon or the ones on my shelf that I haven't read and get started on those.
How do you organize what books you have/want to read? What's next on your TBR list?
