When I started reading e-books I went a little overboard and bought these big sets filled with different books and series from different authors. It even got worse when I got myself a Kindle and found free books at Amazon. So through the years I have accumulated quite a list of eBooks I probably never will read.
So it is time for a spring cleaning in my electronic book TBR list. I use Goodreads to keep track of what I have and want. So those books I believe I will never read, I will delete from my account. This however do not mean that they are gone. I still have them in my amazon cloud or on my hard-drive, depending on where I bought them. So if I regret my choice I still have the ability to read them in the future. But I’m a fan of the saying “out of sight, out of mind” and that is what I will practice here. Just to get my self some peace of mind. Disorganization is extremely stressful for me.
Some of the books are part of series that I have started but will probably never continue. For an example Three sister island by Nora Roberts, due to that I hated the first book. Or Grant County by Karin Slaughter since she spoiled me so heavily in one of her other series (Will Trent) that I don’t want to continue the series.
Then I have a ton of series I never started, like for an example, Bone Island and that is because I have read some books by Heather Graham and I have never liked them. Some of the series I bought because I was interested but now I’m no longer are and after been on my TBR for years, it is time to let it go.
I have also started to delete all those “half” books. I hate that type of thing. Not a big fan of short stories either. So it is time to say “Bye Bye” to them too.
Overall I’m quite happy with my spring cleaning. It will be a lot harder when I do it in my physical TBR shelf. That will probably not be as easy.
