I’ve been spending a lot of time recently sorting through my Goodreads TBR shelf, and I’m learning a lot about my own tastes and how they’ve evolved over the years.
When I started sorting, I had 618 books on my TBR. Now, I have 250 and going down!
Sorting through my shelf has made me realise a couple of things:
- My tastes change so much! I added some of these books 3 years ago and now they don’t sound appealing at all.
- It would realistically take me 12 years to finish my TBR. Oops.
- I add whole series to my TBR at a time?
So, as mentioned above, this kind of made me realise I maybe needed to be realistic about how long it takes me to read. And learn how to be more picky. I remember a couple of years ago, I could spend up to a couple of hours on Goodreads just adding random suggested books to my want-to-read list.
But now, I guess I realise I need to value my reading time more. For one, I’m not reading as much as I used to. And if it takes me years to get through this, I need to get rid of those books that used to sound good but don’t anymore.
Do you sort through your TBR list?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
