Down the TBR Hole #45

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 another book to 702 books!  This time, I blame it on catching up on my favorite blogs.

This week’s books:

The Hobbit Companion by David Day – KEEP.  There’s no way I would ever get rid of this gem of a book.  I will always hold on to my Middle Earth or Hobbit-related books.

The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald- KEEP.  This is another one of those books with a story centered on a bookstore and the person who owns it.  Instead of a memoir, however, this one is fiction. Regardless, there’s no way I wouldn’t pick up this book in a bookstore, buy it, and add it to my collection.

Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan – KEEP.  This book was recommended by another blogger a couple of years ago.  I have the ebook, but I wish I had at least a paperback copy as long as it has this cover.  It’s so beautiful!

The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman – KEEP.  This is a book that I bought at the bookstore after forgetting that I already had the audiobook.  While that’s not the first time I’ve accidentally bought a second copy of a book, it is a sign that I definitely want to keep it on my TBR.

11/22/63 by Stephen King – KEEP.  How could I get rid of a book tied to “The Dark Tower” series?  Not possible.

My to-read shelf is stuck at 702 books.  I’m hoping that changes over this three day weekend.
