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 went back up a little to 836. I hauled 5 boxes of books to sell at Half Price Bookstore and used some of the money to buy a few books while I was there. Some of them were already on my wish list, and therefore on my overall To-Read shelf, but I found a couple of books that weren’t as well. I also added a couple of books to my wish list.
This week’s books:
Penny Dreadful Multipack Volumes 1 – 7 – KEEP. I picked up the Kindle editions of all 7 volumes for a few dollars, and I will eventually read them.
Star Trek: The Next Generation series – KEEP. I’ve read the first one in the series, and I have books 2 through 5 in paperback. The remaining books are on my wish list. From my count, there are 55 books in the series, and that doesn’t count all of the other one-offs and mini-series that feature the Next Generation crew. I will probably read all of those, too, someday. TNG is my fave “Star Trek” series, after all.
The Legends of River Song by various authors – KEEP. I love “Doctor Who”, and I love River Song even more, especially portrayed by Alex Kingston.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers – KEEP. Apparently, this week’s post is all about the Science Fiction. I’m ok with that. After Fantasy, it’s one of my favorite genres.
Dust by Hugh Howey – KEEP. This is the last book in the “Silo” trilogy, which I absolutely LOVE. Howey has become one of my auto-buy authors. I’m looking forward to reading this during the Summer.
My TBR pile remains at 836 books, and unless I finish a book by next weekend, I don’t think it will be changing. I became much more selective about the books I added to my TBR by this point in time (2017), and had already participated in the original #ShelfLove challenge for a couple of years.
