There comes a time in every book lovers’ life, when they realize—or, in my case it is rather admit and accept, because the realization dawned on me much sooner than I was consciously willing to acknowledge—that they will never read all the books they want to read, and certainly not all the books they have added to their TBR.
I thought it was high time I started cleansing mine of books I most likely will never get around to reading (and probably won’t even miss [and this is 100% me, trying to soothe my anxiety-ridden heart, because I might??])—and here is where Lia‘s great tag comes into play:
- Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ‘ascending date added’.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 [or even more, if you’re feeling adventurous]) books & read the synopses
- Decide: keep it, or should it go?
I’m going to move the books I decide should go from my to-read to my lost-interest shelf, and seeing as I’m the worst at making decisions in life, any help at all is very much appreciated! I’m taking on 15 books for my first time, because my current number is way, way too high.
