Having previously failed miserably in any attempt to reduce my physical TBR pile (I won't even begin to contemplate the books on my kindle), this year's strategy will be to have an actual pile that should hopefully dwindle over the next 12 months. This is not the whole of my physical TBR but only the selection I really want to read just now. If I pick another TBR title of the shelf (one which is not in the stack) I get to put one from the stack on the shelf - so it's still flexible.
Tho, I had to break it up into two stacks. For health and safety reasons.
What are your strategies?
