Last year I wrote six posts that reflected my attempts to cull my TBR down a bit, to make it more reasonable, more manageable. The sixth attempt left me with 1,848 titles remaining on my Goodreads TBR.
With so many wonderful titles coming out every month, my total number didn’t seem to be changing very much because I keep hearing about books that sound SO GOOD… so I have to add them…. don’t I ?? Reading other glowing reviews by book bloggers, seeing tempting titles on NetGalley and Edelweiss, as well as receiving tempting offers from authors and publishers, well… it can get a bit overwhelming.
Drastic! Here is what I did.
I sorted my Goodreads “To Read” list by Goodreads rating.
Then I removed all the books that had more than 500 ratings and less than a 3.50 rating score.
Now I have 1,774 titles on my “To Read” list.
That is a reduction of 74 titles! Result!
Of the 1,774 titles I have review commitments for 175.
I’m not getting any younger, and removing five or six at a time just wasn’t very effective for me. Have you ever taken any drastic measures to decrease your TBR?
