How it works:
- Go to your Goodreads want-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 shelf has grown quite a bit since my last post. It currently stands at 1154. I’ve added a lot of books to my TBR, but also to my wish list. This week’s books:
The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma – KEEP. Time Travel and Literary Classics? Yes, Please!
These Restless Heads by James Branch Cabell – GO. Goodreads doesn’t have a synopsis, but luckily the one review did. This book is a Non-Fiction account of the author’s life during the 1920s in Richmond, Virginia. I have the ebook, but I have no idea where or why I got it. It was probably a freebie, but regardless, I have no interest in reading it.
20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill – KEEP. After reading Heart-Shaped Box, I’m definitely going to give this short-story collection a try.
The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy- KEEP. This is by the same author that wrote Tess of the D’Urbervilles, which I gave 4 stars, so I’m willing to give this one a chance.
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan – KEEP. This book is considered a Classic and involves music, so I will definitely read this one.
My want-to-read shelf and my TBR are down one to 1153 books. The next post will be all physical books that I own, and all but one look like keepers. We’ll see.
