Down The TBR Hole #7

Web

Hey guys! I decided I would start doing Down The TBR Hole which was created by the lovely Lost In A Story. It’s my 7th week of doing this. Last week I didn’t get rid of too many books. Let’s see how this week goes!

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

The fact that I  will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR. Continue reading “Down The TBR Hole #7”
