Down the TBR Hole: Feb 23, 2018

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 really do what to read this one, and while I've been slowly reading classics, and it might take a while, I plan to read it one day.

I like the idea behind this book, but never think of it when looking for books, so I probably won't read it.

Since this is the second book in a trilogy, I'm not likely to forget it.

Well, not such a great week, since I'm keeping most of the title listed, but I did get a few off my TBR, and know I have a few weeks ahead with a lot more to remove, so I'll take it. I'm trying to read classics a little at a time along with my other reads, so maybe I'll be able to marked a few of these are read in the coming months.

  1. The Count of Monte Cristo is actually one I enjoyed very much, it just takes some time. Same with the Hobbit!! Excellent post, If I did this with my GR TBR pile I would need a spreadsheet-LOL. Happy Reading!!
