Down the TBR Hole #36: Books 601-620

Lia from Lost in a Story’s challenge “Down the TBR Hole” has helped me whittle down my massive virtual TBR, or at least get me thinking critically about what books I’m actually going to read. I’ve realized I’ve added a lot of books in 2012 and 2013 that I’ve never read and will probably never get around to reading!! There’s also a ton of books that I added in the moment that I’ve never even thought of since then.

“Down the TBR Hole” works like this: order your Goodreads “to be read” shelf with the oldest books first and remove the ones you’re no longer interested in reading. I’ve added in two of my own personal rules: if I have multiple books in a series I’ll only keep the next (or first) one I have to read, and I’ll remove complete works or collections (unless it’s a collection I already own).

Ruling: 14/20 removed

Many of the books I kept were books that I already own so I’m very satisfied with this number! A little sad to get rid of so many camp books, but honestly they had pretty low ratings and bad camp books just make me sad.

How did I do? Did I make any bad decisions?? 😬
