Down the TBR Hole #122

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-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?

My shelf is up by one book to 1127.  I finished a few books this week.
This week’s books:

The Dalai Lama’s Cat by David Michie – KEEP.  Cat meditations?!  Yes, please!

A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr. – KEEP.  I’ve read several reviews from other bloggers that this book is awesome, so it will stay on my wish list until I get around to buying it or checking it out from the library.

Peace Talks by Jim Butcher – KEEP.  I absolutely love “The Dresden Files” series.  This is the 16th book, and I’m on book 12, so it will be a while before I get to this one.

Bookshop Memories by George Orwell – KEEP.  I don’t know where I will find a copy of this book, but I will hopefully find it someday.

The Faceless Old Woman Who Lives In Your Home by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor – KEEP.  Even though it’s not necessary to keep up with the “Welcome to Night Vale” podcast to read the books, I prefer to do that.  Unfortunately, I got really bad about listening to any podcasts thanks to all of the audiobooks I have, but I’m now catching up on “Welcome to Night Vale” in the hopes that I’ll get to this book before the end of the year.
My want-to-read shelf remains at 1127 books. The next post will have a couple of books that at first glance I’m not sure I’ll be keeping.
