Down the TBR Hole was started by Lia over at Lost in a Story. All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.
How it works:
- 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?
I will be repeating this process until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR. My TBR pile is up to 731 books. I continue to find more books to add to my wish list!
This week’s five books:
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest – KEEP. Steampunk AND zombies?! Yes, please and thank you!
Smarter Than You Think by Clive Thompson – GO. Meh. I doubt this book is going to provide me with any new insights or perspectives that I haven’t already considered in regards to how tech is changing our world.
Porno by Irvine Welsh – KEEP. I read somewhere that the title of this book was recently changed to “Trainspotting 2” or some other “more palatable” title. That feels a bit Fahrenheit 451 to me, so I’m keeping my copy of it with the original title.
The Shakespeare Notebooks by Justin Richards – KEEP. This is one of those books I’ll never get rid of even if I don’t ever read it. It’s a permanent part of my “Doctor Who” collection that I will always treasure.
Deviant Strain by Justin Richards – KEEP. Though the 9th Doctor isn’t my favorite, he was my introduction to “Doctor Who” and I think it’s a bit sad that he only got one season. I already own this as an ebook, and it might be one of many “Doctor Who” books I read for this year’s Sci-Fi Summer.
My to-read shelf is back down to 730 books. I’m hoping it will be down a couple of more books by the time I kick off next Saturday’s “Down the TBR Hole” with book #166.
