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 went back up to 1141 books. I finished a book but added a few to my wishlist.
This week’s books:
Ink and Shadows by Ellery Adams – KEEP. This is the 4th book in the “Secret, Book, and Scone Society” series, of which I’ve read the first 3 books. I will probably read this one sometime before the end of the year.
The Complete Poems of Walt Whitman by Walt Whitman – GO. I got this book to read as part of a free class that I started during the pandemic, but never finished, and now can’t even remember what the course was called or what website it was on. I’ve never been much of a poetry reader anyway, so I’m not likely to ever get around to reading this one.
Turtle Recall by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs – KEEP. One of my long-term reading goals is to read every “Discworld” book that Sir Pratchett ever wrote.
All I Ever Wanted by Kathy Valentine – KEEP. A memoir by the bassist of the Go-Go’s, one of my favorite bands. I have the audiobook since she also narrated it, and music memoirs narrated by the musician usually end up being some of my favorite books.
Donn’s Hill by Caryn Larrinaga – KEEP. This book sounds like perfect reading during #RIP.
My want-to-read shelf is one book to 1140. The next post will be mostly physical books I already own.
