TBR pile: (noun) Your “To-Be-Read” pile, the comprehensive list of books that a person plans on reading in the near or distant future. Also known as that stack of books teetering dangerously off the side of the bedside table.
A few months ago, we asked you to share the size of your TBR pile—and you shocked us with the amount of titles on your lists. Some of you have over a thousand just waiting to be devoured. With the help of our friends at Uppercase, we decided to quantify the TBR—in other words, help you figure out just how long it will take you to get through your current list and how old you’ll be when you finish. Of course, we know you’ll be adding books to your pile the whole time, but use this fun tool to measure your big reading ambitions—and let us know on Facebook and Twitter when the calculator says you’ll finish!
