What’s a TBR pile … and do you already have one?
TBR stands for to be read, referring to the number of books someone wants to read. If you're an avid reader like me, then your TBR pile is practically reaching the moon by now. Every time you make a dent in it, you find shinier, new books to collect. Is there a method to the madness?
If you are a teen writer (like me!), the answer is probably heck ya!
