Today for the Caffeinated BEA Takeover we have Bee from Quite the Novel Idea chatting about your TBR pile. She has some tips that work for her so grab a cup of coffee and check it out. Bee will be responding to comments and visiting you today. It is the last day of BEA and I will be flying home tomorrow. Enjoy the post and stay caffeinated!
