The TBR grows ...

I've been on a bit of book buying binge over the past couple months and my active to-be-read pile has got up to about 50 books between fiction, popular non-fiction and academic books.  Not large in the context of some people I know, but very large for me (I usually only have about 10-15 in the pile) - all told it's about half a year's worth of reading.  In particular, I've been snaffling up fiction books.  Above is my tbr on that front (easier to see if you click on it) and I've 8-10 others ordered and another 7 or 8 on the kindle.  Given I've been quite selective in my choices, I at least know it's going to be a very good few months of reading!  However, I must stop buying books until I've worked my way through them all!  On the other hand, all the fiction on the pile is only about 4 months of reading, which isn't very long at all really ...

You're in for a treat with Thirteen Hours.

Even your pile looks more orderly than mine does, Rob. But I've been eyeing many of the same titles.

Yes, looking forward to 13 Hours (well all of them to be honest!). Tidied the pile up for the photo!

A lot of variety on your bookshelf, Rob. BRITAIN'S WAR MACHINE looks particularly tempting.
