Culling The Herd of Books Part 5

This is Culling The Heard post #5. You can check out all the posts here! Goodreads has been a godsend in keeping track of the books I want to read, what I’ve read, what I own, and what I liked. This post is all about weeding out my Mountain of a TBR Pile.

35 books is a nice culling! My TBR is always out of control. 🙂

Woo that is a lot of books gone. Some of them are on my favorites list. lol

Melanie Simmons

I do remove some every now and then. I could probably do it more often.

Laura Thomas

I do cull books from my Goodreads TBR. Especially if I have more than one book in a series on there. I need to go take a look at mine again. Been a while.

MY TBR is much larger and I don’t really care about trimming. You removed some on this list which I have read and enjoyed. If it works for you, that’s great

Mary Kirkland

I usually only add a few at a time and read them before I add more so my tbr pile isn’t real large.

Tanya @ Rantings of a Reading Addict

I look at my TBR and get reminded of what I added then I don’t really take any off because I feel like I do want to read those books. I don’t normally add to it anymore though. I have only been putting the books on GR as I start reading them until I decide how to best control that GR TBR.

I definitely cull my TBR! Usually every couple of months, otherwise I know I’ll never get round to reading them and that makes me feel bad, so I suppose it’s for the best.
