Down the TBR Hole #67

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 up again to 672 books.  I came across a few books that I couldn’t resist adding to my wish list while I was reading a new-to-me blog.

This week’s books:

Chasing the Flame by Samantha Power – GO.  This is not the book I thought it was.  I thought it was the memoir of someone else who had survived extreme burns over most of his body, but I can’t remember his name.  I just remember watching an interview and then looking for a book that supposedly had the same title.

Eragon by Christopher Paolini – KEEP. This is one of those extremely popular books that everyone but me seems to have read.  My BFF says it was beyond boring, but we sometimes disagree about books, so I’ll give this one the 50 page test.

How to Train a Wild Elephant by Jan Chozen Bays – KEEP.  This is one of the many books on Mindfulness that I own, but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.  I probably will the next time I need to “relearn” the skills I learned in therapy.

Go Ask Alice by Anonymous – GO.  I’m just not that interested in reading about a teenager’s story of drug addiction.

Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen – KEEP. I’ve always been curious about this book, since it’s supposed to be the ultimate armchair-travel experience, but I didn’t add it to my TBR until watching “Gilmore Girls.”

My TBR pile is down again to 670 books.  I haven’t yet started any Sci-Fi books for #SciFiSummer, but I’m hoping that now that I’m back home from my trip to Florida, that will change soon.
