Down the TBR Hole vol. 2

Welcome to the second edition of Down the TBR Hole!

If you’re not familiar, Down the TBR Hole is a meme that originally appeared on Between the Shelves and is currently hosted by Lia @ Lost in a Story  The premise is to slowly clear out your TBR shelves (mainly focused on Goodreads) of things you know you’re never actually going to pick up and finally remember what all you actually have on there.

How it works

  1. Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  2. Order on ascending date added.
  3. Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  4. Read the synopses of the books
  5. Decide: keep it or should it go?

This round

This time, I’m going to work on evaluating 50 or so books, including the ones I left on my shelf from last time. I really want to be ruthless and intentional with what books are on my tbr!
