Down the TBR Hole #5 - 11/12/2020


Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by Lia @ 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.
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 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: Keep it or let it go?
So I made a comment the other day about wanting to be more active on the blog again, and so Joood, my arch-nemesis, bossed me into joining this meme. I'm just going to warn you that this is going to be an exercise in futility for me, because I add dozens of books to my to-read shelf on Goodreads every day as I enter literally all of the giveaways. But that is also going to add another element to my posts, because I refuse to completely break up with a giveaway win, at least for now. I may change my mind on that in the future. But also, since my shelf is so crazy out of control and only getting worse, I'm going to have to go through way more than ten books per post. So for now, my posts will be light on graphics, and I'm only going to explain the books I'm keeping. 
Let's go, shall we?
At the end of my last post I'd managed to whittle my to-read list down to 139,603. But as per usual, I've entered more giveaways, so this is where we are starting for today.

Books removed: 99

Books kept: 1

Guys! I only kept ONE book from this list of 100 books, and that one because I won a copy of it through a giveaway. This feels huge for me. If I can have more lists like this, I'll get my to-read shelf pared down in about 4 years (and I wish that was a joke). 

I'll be back tomorrow with another big list. - Katie
