Culling The Heard of Books Part 2

I did my first Culling The Heard post back in March. You can check it out here

When I started this new Culling The Heard post, My Goodreads TBR was 1197, at the end it’s down to 1100. I removed 97 books off my TBR. WOW!!

Goodreads is a great place to keep track of all those book you want to read. It’s been a godsend in that area, but unfortunately when I started I would put a whole series or all of the authors work on my TBR. Now I want to clean up my TBR.

My plans: With series books I plan to have the first book on my TBR. If I like it and want to continue the series then I’ll add the next book. As for other books on my TBR some I’m no longer interested in anymore, others are no longer in print, and last some I can’t remember why I put them on my TBR in the first place, so I’m removing them off the TBR pile.

  1. 30 books off the list — pretty darn good!

    • It was a total of 97 books removed off the list. I still have more culling to do, but it’s nice to actually work on getting my TBR to something I will actually try to read. ^_^

  2. Wow removing 97 is awesome! Good job 🙂 I try to keep my list under control too! I used to do the same thing with series and it made for some easy culling at first to get rid of all but the first book in a series!

    • I still have a ways to go before my Culling is done, but I’ve made a good start. It’s so much easier to have just the first book in a series on the list and then add the next if you want to keep going. Thank’s Brittany for visiting.

  3. Great job!!! That’s awesome!!! Shared on all my socials!!

  4. I need to go through my GR list. It is full of stuff I’m probably not going to read. You took the Immortals After Dark series off. Are you still waiting to read #1 or did you not like the first book?

    • I still have book one of Immortals After Dark on my list to read. I just removed all the other books and novellas until after I read book 1. Going through the Goodreads TBR list is fun but also time consuming. I’ve found several books that are no long in print or out and others that I can’t remember what possess me to put them on the list. Thank’s Tanya for stopping in. Don’t worry I’m still going to try the Immortals After Dark… that series has been on my want to read for some time.
