October 2019 Haul/TBR Checkpoint

October 26, 2020

It’s time for another haul/TBR checkpoint post! In these posts, every month, I look at the haul and TBR posts from that same month one year prior and see how many of those books I actually read since then. It’s just a fun way to show some stats and hold myself accountable since I want to start doing a better job of reading my new books soon after hauling them!

Side note: I will not be counting library loans or Kindle freebies in these stats. I also do not count rereads in the TBR checkpoints.

Apparently, I thought I needed a massive TBR last October lmao.

So, do you ever look back on your old TBRs and hauls to check your progress? Is it usually better or worse than mine? ? Mine isn’t great in this checkpoint, but I’m hoping these stats will get progressively better — partially because I haul less books than I used to in the average month, and partially because I’m trying to get better about actually reading things shortly after hauling them!
