Down the TBR Hole #88

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?

My TBR pile shot up to 1115 books.  I added a large series to my wishlist so that I don’t have to keep looking up what the next book is as I finish them.

This week’s books:

Road Trips, Head Trips, and Other Car-Crazed Writings ed. by Jean Lindamood Jennings – KEEP.  I love road trips and books about them.

An Introduction to Women’s Writing ed. by Marion Shaw – KEEP.  Goodreads doesn’t have a synopsis, there are no other editions listed, and no reviews.  However, I remember finding this at a campus booksale for a $1, and I’m still interested in reading it.

Through Time by Andrew Cartmel – KEEP.  This was another “Doctor Who” book I got in a giveaway.

Wonder Woman Psychology ed. by Travis Langley – KEEP. I usually get the “[Insert fandom here] and Philosophy” books, but I didn’t see one for “Wonder Woman.”  Instead, I found this on the shelf at the bookstore, and I’m interested to see my favorite DC comic book character through the lens of psychology.

Dinosaur Highway by Laurie E. Jasinski – KEEP.  I LOVE Dinosaurs, and one of the biggest events every semester during my time in the Texas State University Geology Club was to go to a very small Natural History museum to help clean their portion of the dinosaur tracks and the surrounding area of debris.  The tracks we worked on were only viewable to regular visitors from a boardwalk, so it felt extra special to be able to get up close and personal with the tracks without having to be someone with letters after my name.  I bought this book in the museum’s gift shop during one of those trips so that I could learn more about the tracks and the history of the area.
My TBR pile is holding steady at 1115 books. I don’t know if it’s easier to get rid of ebooks than the physical books I own or if I’m just choosier about the physical books I buy, but I don’t seem to be willing to part with my physical books like I have the ebooks in previous posts.
