Down the TBR Hole #128

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 down to 1138 books.  I’ve been reading a lot and not buying any books.
This week’s books:

The First City by Joe Hart – KEEP. This is the last book in “The Dominion” trilogy, and I would like to read it during next year’s #SciFiSummer.

Braving the Wilderness by Brené BrownGO.  I bought this when I was struggling greatly with my mental health and had read one of the author’s other books, which helped me quite a bit.  I’m sure it would be helpful to someone and that’s why I’m letting it go; otherwise, it will continue to sit on my shelf unread.  If I need it at some point, I can always buy another copy.

Outpost by Dan Richards – KEEP.  I don’t know when I’ll finally get around to reading this or if I’ll enjoy it, but I’m sure I’ll want to do a bit of armchair traveling at some point, maybe even this Winter.

The Salt Path by Raynor Winn – KEEP.  This book had been on my wishlist for years and I finally decided to buy the ebook.

Silence: In the Age of Noise by Erling Kagge – KEEP.  I love silence, especially after a long day at work, and I think reading this book will provide a bit of quiet hygge.
My want-to-read shelf is down one book to 1137. The next post will be more of the physical books I already own.
