My Comments On: Culling my lengthy TBR list – second attempt

This is a sad and anxiety producing post about a book junkie who has created a list of too many TBR novels. Sad because I am one of these junkies also. For the addicted, this post has to be read with caution because Fictionophile lists several links to the ten selections chosen for possible removal. And I had to follow each one. I won’t reveal how many titles migrated to my list.

Fictionophile’s list comes from Goodreads. My addiction is to a site called Instafreebies which further links to author mailing lists and other blogs which offer collections of free books. How can I resist free? A positive note is that many of the books I get from Instafreebee are novellas or short stories. A negative note as far as TBR list expansion is that this weekend I found nineteen titles to download. (But they were free!!)

This is an interesting post to read and commiserate with. Read to the end for a surprising conclusion which might make you laugh out loud.

Shame on you. You shouldn’t laugh at the addicted.


Lost in a Story began this idea for blog posts as a way to edit a growing to-be-read list.  You take your Goodreads TBR list, sort by ascending date added, and look at the oldest 5-10 items on your list.  If you haven’t read them by now, are you likely to? Why or why not?

I began using Goodreads in September of 2012.  I was not overly successful in my first attempt at culling my TBR list, so I hope I’ll have better results this time.

I’ve reread the Goodreads blurbs for each of the following and based my decision on the Goodreads rating and whether the blurb still piqued my interest.
