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.

When I started this culling, My Goodreads TBR was 853. At the end it’s down to 818. I removed 35 books off my TBR.[/su_note]

  1. 35 books is a nice culling! My TBR is always out of control. 🙂

    • I like the feeling that I’m getting it in some type of order or control even if I still keep adding to it. ^_^

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

    • It’s nice to finally get my TBR more organized and under control. Still work to do, but it’s a start.

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

    • Good luck. I still have work to do, but it’s better then what it was.

  4. 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.

    • I’ve stil got a ways to go, but i’m trying to get my TBR more organized and not keep a hole series on. I also put books on their that I know I’ll never read just to get a giveaway entry. My goal is to get it more to what I know I’m going to read or have an interest in. Thank’s for visiting.

  5. 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

    • Thank’s Anne!

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

    • That’s great!

  7. 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.

    • That’s one way to help the TBR and keep it under control.

  8. I am terrible about controlling my tbr pile!!!! I clean it up and say to myself that I won’t add anymore til I read some and then turn around and add more!!! Hi I’m Kat and I’m a book addict!! Lmfao!!!??

    Shared on my socials!! Have a awesome weekend ladies!??

    • LOL Kat….. ^_^

  9. 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.

    • Sometimes cleansing the TBR can be refreshing. I still have work to do on my TBR, but it’s better then it was.
