A Response to Book Riot’s “The Great TBR Poll”
We loved Book Riot’s "The Great TBR Poll" so much that we asked the Open Road staff to sort through their shelves and e-readers and share a bit about themselves. The results varied from how many books are on their TBR lists to where they’re kept, but one thing remained the same: the Open Road staff loves their books.
Some notes on methodology:
Total participants: 28
Like Book Riot, we rounded and approximated numbers like “over 300” became “300” to generate these averages. And for answers like “too many to count” we decided that you could never have too many books.
1. Do you keep a list of books you want to read?
2. How many books are currently on your “to be read” list?
3. How many books do you own that you haven’t read yet?
4. Where do you keep your TBR list?
File or spreadsheet: 0
Journal or notepad: 1
Mobile device or app: 7
On e-reader: 1
Physical stack/shelf: 3
Retailer wishlist: 4
Other social network: 1
Props to Rebecca Schinsky and the team at Book Riot. This was really fun!

The Facebook Sonnet
Welcome to the endless high-school
Reunion. Welcome to past friends
And lovers, however kind or cruel.
Let’s undervalue and unmend
The present. Why can’t we pretend
Every stage of life is the same?
Let’s exhume, resume, and extend
Childhood. Let’s all play the games
That occupy the young. Let fame
And shame intertwine. Let one’s search
For God become public domain.
Let church.com become our church.
Let’s sign up, sign in, and confess
Here at the altar of loneliness.
