TBR-a-thon?

Hey, people so here what’s going on, between my kindle and Goodreads tbr list I have 5,831 books plus books to read. So, I came up with TBRathon and asked Hannah from Hannacondablog to help me out, and she said yes. I asked Amanda from A Court Of Books And Love, but she hasn’t given me an answer, so we’ll see. The aim is to help bring down the number of books on your tbr shelf. I’m posting this today to see if any of you want to take part or help me out.
