Down the TBR Hole #80

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 shot up again to 932 thanks to finding even more books on my shelves that never got added to Goodreads when I brought them home.

This week’s books:

The Boy’s Life by Tobias Wolff – GO.  Meh.  Not interested.

More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz – KEEP.  Need I explain myself?

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby – KEEP.  I’m a little skeptical about whether or not this will actually be interesting, but I’m willing to give it the 50-page test.

Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire – KEEP. I love fairy tale retellings, and I’ve never heard anything bad about Maguire’s writing.

Pennies for Hitler by Jackie French – KEEP.  Another one I’m not sure about but willing to give a chance.

My TBR pile is down one to 931 books. Next week’s books are all still on my wishlist.  I suppose we’ll see if I still want them.
