Hello Everyone!

Today I thought I would share with you something that I started over a month ago to keep my TBR lists interesting. I’ve seen a few people do this so I thought it would be cool to try it, it is a TBR jar.

There are different ways to do this, but I decided to put all the books that I own (physical books, with a few ebooks) on to slips of paper and put it in a mason jar. Each month when I make my TBR list I will draw about 5 or 6 slips from the jar. The ones that I don’t finish will placed back in the TBR jar after the drawing for the next month.
