Down The TBR Hole #152

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story 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

I am going to remove sequels for books when I haven’t read book one.  They may or may not get added back later.

  1. I finally took your advice and started to look over my TBR pile and wow, it was so liberating to let go! I started with my oldest books and as I looked at them, I couldn’t believe some of these books were still on there. AND, that some books were actually on there, to start with! What possessed me to.put those books on there?!? Ha. My list is long and many years old but I’m not going to delete them all because some of them, I do want to read and I will. I’m getting a handle on it, I’m in “ the program” and taking the steps to recovery. Thanks for the push!
