Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books discussing a bookish topic each Friday. This is my first time doing it, and I’m really excited. This week’s topic is Are TBR’s (to be reads) necessary to be considered a book blogger, or reader?
I don’t actually think that TBRs are necessary, because I don’t have a TBR: I don’t have a list of the books I want to read next: I just go to the library, pick out a bunch of books that look good, and read them.
I don’t think that you really need to do anything to be a reader other than read, and anything other than blogging to be a blogger, but I can see how TBRs can be a helpful way to organize what books you want to read next. It could also feel really satisfying to check books off your TBR.
For me though, I don’t really like structuring how I read. I just read books that look good, and I’ll sometimes have a short list of 2 or 3 books in my head that I know I want to read, I just don’t have a really long list.
I think that having a TBR really depends on the person, and can be helpful and fun, but that it definitely is not necessary to be considered a book blogger or reader.
What do you think? Do you have a TBR? Chat with me in the comments below.
