So I was cruising Tumblr as I do and I came across a post about making a TBR jar for all the books that the person needed to read. Instantly a bell went off in my head. I have SO MANY books that I’ve bought and haven’t touched since. I knew it was time to get started on those and what better way than to get a little crafty? (Yes, I consider writing on pieces of paper crafty. This ain’t an art show!)
So here’s what I used:
- construction paper (so colorful!)
- small clear jar
I cut strips of construction paper, folded them in half, and cut them again. Once I had my pieces of paper, I chose the books that are on my TBR shelf and wrote down the titles. Then I folded the strips much smaller so all of them would fit in the jar.
Then I dropped them in and shook it up a bit. Below you can see some of the titles that made it into the jar!
So this is how I’m going to choose what to read next for a little while. I might deviate sometimes like when I have to read for book club or when I want to re-read or something exciting comes out and I have to read it right that second. I’m ridiculously excited about doing this, though, because recently I’ve been plagued by a case of indecision when it comes to what I want to read. I just don’t know what I feel like doing! Now the decision rests in the hands of fate.
