I get a lot of book email. I even have a separate email set up for my bookish stuff. Lately it’s Out of Print, telling me they’re having a sale and I need new shirts (I’m hiding my credit card right now). Or it is all the publishing houses telling me to read this awesome book coming out. Which I generally do. Which kinda works with the email I just got for TBR Time.
I click on it and it tells me to put in my current TBR, my total read count from last year and then my age.
I put in 800 books. That’s the number on my Goodreads account as we speak. This number is ALWAYS fluctuating. Last year’s count was 275. And for at least a little while longer, I’m 31.
My results are as follows.
- Reading 800 books will take: 2 years and 10 months
- You will finish your TBR pile on: January 18, 2018
- And you will be: 34 years old
So there you have it, folks. I won’t have to read anymore after January of 2018. What will I do with all that free time? Obviously we know this isn’t going to happen. We add to our TBRs all the time. Either with new books that are just being published or old books that we’re just discovering. I reread stuff all the time too. Also there’s the fact, right now I’m not in the mood for Middlemarch. I might not be in the next two years.
Is this an exact science? Of course not. I doubt it’s really offered as one. Is it fun though? Absolutely.
What does your TBR Time say?
