I have been seeing this little craft all over the place, and it seems like a good way for me to kill my To-Be-Read list a little bit. Every time I am at a loss for what to read next, instead of poring through Goodreads for a million years trying to pick a book, all I have to do is reach into the TBR Jar and voila! Decision easily made. Here are the super simple steps.
Very straight forward. Luckily I'm a jar hoarder so I had quite a few to pick from. But they also sell them at Target and other stores, of course.
Write down that list! For starters, I wrote down all of the books on my book shelf that I have not read yet. I've been meaning to read more books on my shelf but that damn library always reels me in with dozens of books. Also, I have not the time to write down all 700+ books on my Goodreads TBR list. I used some cool shimmery, mermaidesque scrapbook paper. Cool paper looks cool in the jar!
Tedious, but quick! Cut out the strips and then crinkle them so they fill up more space in the jar and look prettier. It's all about aesthetics, after all. Once you've done that...
Do you have a book jar? Want to make one? What are some books waiting to be read on your list?
