Lately I’ve been adding books upon books to my list of books to read, while adding these I have found there are books on that list that no longer interest me. I get into moods of what I want to read and then other books do not sound interesting to me.
When this happens I am torn, do I want to remove the books or not?
– I can have a shorter TBR list
– I can focus on what I want to read at the moment
– I might want to read that novel at a later point, but not remember the name
For me it depends on the book and author. If it’s an author or book I had heard a lot about and put it on my list for that reason, it will stay on. If it’s a book that I found randomly, I feel like I have less of a reason to read it. Don’t get me wrong, I know that’s a really bad way to judge whether a book should be on my list or not. I do feel as though the books I heard a lot about I already invested a lot more time in.
I have deleted entire TBR lists before and then the only books I would have missed out on were recommended to me again. Or I remembered them a week later and put them back on.
I don’t generally feel bad about cleaning out my TBR list, after all if I kept adding things to it the list would be around 500 books long, and I can’t read that many in addition to all the new releases I want to read.
Do you delete books off your list?
How do you keep track of your TBR?
