Down the TBR Hole #10

word

“Down the TBR Hole” is a meme created by Lia (@ Lost in a Story).

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 you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about or why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your Goodreads “Want to Read” shelf.
  • Order by ascending date added.
  • Take the first five (or ten, if you’re 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: Should it stay or should it go?

I’m doing a huge purge this week in terms of my TBR. It’s getting a wee bit out of control! If you want to learn more about a book, just click the picture 🙂
