I think if there’s one thing all us readers have in common it’s the huge ‘To Be Read’ pile. Many of us pick up books we intend on reading, we buy more than we have time to read, books get pushed aside for newer releases and the pile just continues to grow. The reading addicts got chatting about the books that have been on the TBR pile the longest and we were curious so our latest poll asked our 300,000 Reading Addicts which book had been on their TBR pile the longest. Here are the results.
There were 189 books mentioned in all, far too many to list, but we’ve collated your results and we have your 28 books that are eternally TBR.
So that’s the top of the list and the books with the most votes, but many got mentioned. These books all scored five votes each in the poll for having sat on your TBR pile the very longest.
A Suitable Boy
Pride and Prejudice
Then with four votes each came:
Under the Dome
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Great Gatsby
While the books with three votes each are:
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Memoirs of a Geisha
The Pillars of the Earth
A Tale of Two Cities
Crime & Punishment
Love in the Time of Cholera
There are some fantastic books on the list and if you voted maybe you should make yourself a promise this year to read that book that has been on your TBR pile the longest!
