Down The TBR Hole #2

Welcome back one and all to Down the TBR hole, where I am attempting to reduce my TBR in number and remove any unwanted books from the list. My list is not insurmountable, and I have made a good effort in reducing it this year, but I want to try and remove any of the books that I no longer want to read, and remove the ones that are only on there because I think they should be and not because I actually want to read them. OK, so, last time I managed to ditch a few reads and my TBR ended on 233 books, but since then I have added books I have received as gifts and added books that I have acquired through charity book hauls, so it currently actually stands at 244 books.

So, how does it work?

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Down the TBR Hole #1

Hello all, and welcome to a new feature on my blog: Down the TBR Hole. I have seen this post type on my friend Emma’s blog for a while now (click here to read her posts), and is something I have meant to do on my own blog for some time now. My TBR is not currently insurmountable by any means, but it’s growing and growing and I have no idea what’s actually on there or if I even want to read everything on the list anymore, so I am going to try and shorten the list, or at the very least remove things I don’t care about reading to add things I want to finish on there.

If you’d like to follow me on Goodreads, then please follow the following link and ‘Add Friend’.
