My Original TBR

I found this the other day and thought it’d be fun to share. It’s my original TBR… from when I was a kid… in the nineties.

The cover says “Groovy” and has a large smiley face, likely to mimic the super-popular Lisa Frank style.

And since there was no Goodreads (nor did we have internet), I wrote every book by hand. And if I found a series I wanted to read, I’d write down every. single. one.

I’m fairly sure most of these came from those awesome Scholastic Book Club flyers that got sent home every once in a while. I’m also fairly sure I never got around to a lot of these. In that way childhood TBR was very similar to my current one!

Gel pens were also the thing back then. (I also exchanged them with my pen pal, because those were also a thing.)

What was your first TBR like? How did you keep track of the books you wanted to read before Goodreads and the like came along?
