Down The TBR #6

Down The TBR Hole is a meme that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

 

 

My TBR is at 2567 this week.

I must have been looking at books with blood in the title.  Weird.

Another one I don’t remember adding.

This doesn’t really appeal to me now.

This still sounds good, but I doubt I’ll pick it up anytime soon.

While this still sounds good, I would probably only pick it up if the book was given to me.

Another book I don’t remember adding.

This still sounds good.  Even though I don’t know if I’ll read it, I’m going to keep it for now.  I may change my mind later.

This is another that I would probably only pick up if it was given to me.

I actually have a copy of this one here.

This was a good week for removing books.  I kept 2 and removed 8.  New TBR total is 2559.

  1. 2,559? Wow. I don’t add anything to the Goodreads TBR pile. I feel like reading then would be a job. I have a TBT pile, but it has about 55 books in it, I like the physical pile so then I can pick up the books I am interested in reading, look at the front covers, read the backs and decide what I feel like. Based on the front cover along, the Reliable Wife looks interesting. And I too have the Orphan Train waiting to be read.
