I was pleased to each my goal plus 2 last year so will stay at 48, as it is doable and leaves room for the new and shiny. No strategies, just plugging away at those shelves.
At last I have an opportunity to record my progress. I have got off to a slow start due to family staying but I hope to pick up the pace.

I have just noticed that my TBR shelves currently stand at 352, so if I read 4 or 5 or more books this month I will have made progress in that I started the year with 348. I am also going to stick with some lighter reads for the month, as life is far too busy at present.
Hurray, congratulations on reaching your goal! Enjoy your lighter reads. December is an excellent time for them. :)
Thanks. I loved the beginning of The History of Love. Leo Gursky really is the star of the book. However, I wasn't so taken with the other narrators and indeed found the changing voices and timeline confusing. I am not alone in saying it would warrant a reread to sort things out in my mind.
I have just noticed that my TBR shelves are now at 348 which means I am finishing the year with the same number to be read as when I started the year. Oh well it could be worse. Maybe this year I will be more restrained with my purchases but I think this is the first year that it hasn't increased. That is progress of a kind.
