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 Brown – GO. 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.
