Down The TBR Hole #47

 

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’m going to start doing these a little differently to save picture space/time.  I’ll still list all 15-20 books, but I’m only going to add a few pictures.  It will likely be the books I’m keeping unless there are none for the week.  Then I’ll add a few random ones so it’s not super boring looking.

Discussion: Book Formats

 

I thought I would post a discussion post today.  The topic is something I see pretty often and I always like to see what people prefer.

 

Which book format do you prefer?  And why?

 

Audiobooks:

I just started listening to audiobooks last year.  I usually use them as a reread or for nonfiction books.  I like that I can listen in the car with my husband, but also at home using my Amazon Echo.  We have audible.

Goodreads Monday 9/10/18

 

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

 

I really need to start a spreadsheet because I’m having a hard time remembering which books I’ve used already.  I apologize if I use any more than once.  I guess that just means I really want to read it!  Hopefully I didn’t use this one already.
