My TBR Book Jar ♥

After watching countless videos regarding book jars I finally made myself one! I first ran across the idea after watching Jessica's book jar video on her youtube channel (priceiswong) and have made it my mission to make my own! You will not believe how many books that I have sitting on my shelf or on my kindle unread. It really is just crazy and something that I need to start tackling now! So I thought I'd create a book jar, document the process and reveal my finished creation. I wanted to make it a little more colourful than just a jar with white scraps of paper in so I bought some nice girly paper to go with my bedroom to jazz it up a little. It took so long to write out all of my unread books on the little scraps of paper, then fold them and put them in the jar. But I have finally finished and pleased with the result. I'm hoping this book jar will help when I just don't know what to read next, as I have a hard time choosing with all of the great books on my shelf!

And there you go. One Unread Book Jar! Let the reading commence :)

  3. I have to admit, I sometimes count my books and use random.org to come up with a random book to read off my shelves. This is soo much cuter!!

  4. OOh nice! I once tried something like this to help aid in what to read next. It wasn't anything pretty and I don't think I ever got far with it. Maybe had the idea to put all the book titles in a hat and draw one for the next read!

    But yes, this is a very nice idea and very pretty!

  10. Wow, I made the original book jar to cheer myself up after my laptop died and then suddenly loads of people were making them and oh my word, it has been AMAZING to see what everyone is doing with the idea! Have fun with your picks - I'm about to pick my fourth choice from mine and you can see how I'm doing on my blog, Alex in Leeds.
