Like most (or probably all!) book lovers I have a TBR list of books that have caught my attention. As I just use whatever is to hand to make a note I have lists spread out over several places. These aren’t books I actually have waiting to be read – although I certainly have those too – but ones I think I’ll want to track down in the future.
One such ‘list’ is kept as pictures on my phone, if I’m at work (library) and see a book I fancy but I don’t have time for right then I’ll take a photo, if I’m in a bookshop – same, if I’m reading other blogs or booksites I’ll often take a screenshot to remind me what caught my attention. The result is that in my phones camera roll between photos of my kids and cat there are random book covers dotted about.
I thought I’d share some of those with you – the pictures are probably a bit wonky, they’re the actual shots from my phone! In no particular order these are the ones I found lurking …
Where do you keep your book lists? Have you read any of my TBR list – would you recommend any of them?

I keep a working TBR on Goodreads, and I keep a folder in my bookmarks of books that look interesting but that I may or may not get to. And I’ve totally done the ‘take a picture of a book to remember it for later’ thing. Smartphones really come in handy when you’re a reader! 🙂
Ah yes, I do have a lot on goodreads too but they’re on my work account as I run that, not my own!
Smartphones are indeed very handy.
Bookmarks folder sounds like a great way of doing it too.
This looks far more organised than I am! I used to be really good at adding them to my Goodreads, but I honestly now either go for what needs a review, or what I’ve got immediate access to and I completely neglect my list! Which is probably why I can never remember what I want to read. This is making me inspired to be more organised! Great post – and happy reading!
Thanks! I find having the covers to look at rather than just a written list really helpful.
