Down the TBR Hole #46

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 back down to 699 books!  I really hope I can keep it under 700 for the rest of the year.

This week’s books:

The Salmon of Doubt by Douglas Adams – KEEP.  This is considered to be the 3rd book in the “Dirk Gently” series, but it’s a collection of essays and short stories published after Adams passed away.  I’ve been saving it for after I finish the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” series since there’s supposed to be a story involving Zaphod Beeblebrox.

The Complete Tolkien Companion by J.E.A. Tyler- KEEP.  I have the first edition of this, but it’s prior to the publication of The Simarillion.  I wants it, my precious!

The Time Traders by Andre Norton – GO.  I’ve had this book ever since the Sword & Laser book club decided to read it a couple of years ago.  I never got around to reading it, probably because I was distracted by several other books.  It’s also possible that I got it simply because it was free. The path to my TBR mountain is paved with the good intentions of stocking up on free ebooks for the inevitable apocalypse.  Or, you know, for when I’m broke.

Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead – KEEP.  This is the final book in the “Georgina Kinkaid” series, as far as I know.  I haven’t read it yet because I’m saving it for a time when I really need some brain candy.

Goggles Gone Strong by S.M.W. Claw – KEEP.  I’m skeptical about this one, but I think it might be a fun Middle-Grade read, so I’ll give it a chance.

My to-read shelf is down to 698 books. I only have 2 days of work before I’m off for Thanksgiving, which means lots of time to read. Let’s see if I can get my TBR down to 695 by next weekend!
