My book plans for the rest of 2021, thanks to Kristin Kraves Books for posting about this and for Shut Up Shealea for creating this challenge.
Why am I doing this challenge?
Well, in the last few month I feel like my physical and virtual book hoarding has gotten out of control. I know that there are book in here that I will never read, it is therefore taking up necessary space physically, virtually and spiritually.
1. Remove Books I Am No Longer Interested In From My Goodreads TBR
It’s time to refresh the TBR, my tastes have changed since I joined Goodreads back in 2012…geez I have been on GR for that long?! I also know that looking through my TBR I will probably see books I have read but haven’t added to GR or that there is a book I had forgotten about and want to read.
2. Unhaul Physical Books I Am No Longer Interested In
I currently have a very small bookcase (disaster really), but I really want to achieve what will probably be the most outrageous thing. I want to have read all the books on my bookshelf! I know, I know, is that even really possible?! So I am going to aim to unhaul physical books that I haven’t read or I won’t read again. 6 months ago I could have told you I don’t have many physical books, but in the last 3 months I have made that statement untrue.
3. Declutter my Kindle
I am a hoarding of free kindle books, I am guarantee there are hundreds on there and to honest I know I will never read them all. So I am going to unhaul as many as I can, but looking at the ratings on GR because if I am not hooked by the synopsis then the rating will help me make my decision.
4. Create a TBR spreadsheet
Ok, in my defense I used to have one but then the great reading slump of 2019/2020 meant that I stopped using a spreadsheet. What I am thinking of doing to make it more interactive for myself is creating a reading bullet journal, I feel down the YouTube rabbit hole with bullet journaling and I feel this will help me with my TBR!
Will you join in shaping up your shelves to finish off 2021 on a new page?
