NYMBC To Be Read Pile

So the best part of my job is that I get to read for a living, the worst part of my job is that I have to read for a living. Follow me? As the Not Your Mother’s Book Club event coordinator, I get to read so many amazing books and meet the wonderful authors! BUT, that leaves very little time for me to read books that are not scheduled for events! Over the last year, my TBR pile has been growing. I’ve told myself, and gently whispered to each book as I set it on the pile, “I will read you in November.” November. The month that the whole marketing team heads back into the stores to help with the Holiday rush. Everything goes on hold for two whole months, which means, I can read as many books as I possibly can in 8 weeks. This year’s TBR list is long, but I”m hoping I can at least make a dent!
