Down The TBR Hole #31: Conquer your TBR

I saw the most AMAZING post from LOST IN A STORY with the most AMAZING idea to help cut down my ridiculously large TBR! Thank you so much for creating this post!!

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS: (straight from original post)

  • 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?

Every week I will be going through 10 books on my Goodreads TBR and purging as many as I feel comfortable with. Most likely these posts will go up on a Wednesday. Currently I have 300 to go through and this number is always being added to, so hopefully this will help a lot. Here are my next ten books!

THE BOOKS:

THE FOUR AGREEMENTS BY MIGUEL RUIZ

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

THE CELESTINE PROPHECY BY JAMES REDFIELD

This week I chose to keep 7/10 books. It’s hard when a lot are review books or spiritual growth books for me lol.

  1. This is an amazing idea! Personally, my Goodreads TBR only has a few books on. Early last year I cleared it out completely and tbh, I don’t really add books to it anymore. I only use GR to keep track of the books I’ve read. But for anyone who’s GR tbh is overflowing, this is a great way to clear it out. Also, if you remove a book and don’t think about it again, clearly you didn’t wanna read it THAT much to start with! xxx

    1. Exactly!!! There are so many books I got rid of off of my list and never thought about again! A few have been nagging at me so I may just add those ones back, because clearly they want to be read lol I’m in awe of the fact that you cleared your GR TBR shelf 😍😍
