I have a bookshelf beside my bed (and my husband has another on his side), plus there's a stack on the floor. The tbr pile isn't large at the moment because they are all in a box near the real bookshelves waiting to be carried downstairs to be catalogued. But when they all go back up - well the bedside pile will grow and grow.

The bedside pile of books may be a Sign of List Members - but I think it would be the sign of members of several other lists too! I can only just eat grilled cheese sandwiches - I hate cheese really - but if its what I have to do to belong, then I'll try it.
