Yo. What a co-een-kee-dink that I just so happened to “declutter” my shelves this week since the prompt for Top 5 Wednesday = Books You’ve Removed From Your TBR over at the Goodreads Group.
Meaning, I’m including five books I had every intention to read at one point but they fell to the wayside, leading ultimately to their dismissal from the TBR nest.
Sidebar :: I’ve been it a sort of “minimalist-grumpy-hag” mood as of late. Like, I want to pitch almost everything I own because I’m sick of having so much junk around.
Anybody else ever feel that way?
Note : The five selections this week are all books I started at one point but gave up on. You have the right to remain silent. Any further encouragement to continue them will be used against you in a court of book blog law.
And, no, I don’t have any fun handcuffs.
Simply put, I’ve hit this point where if I don’t feel myself enjoying a book by about 30%, I stop. And I know to some of you, that’s a moral sin. It used to be that way for me, too. If I started a book, I felt guilty unless I finished it.
There’s just too many books out there though, y’all, that have the ability to capture us instantly and hold us there. Why should we be missing out on those?
What about you? Do you have to finish a book once you start it? Or do you feel guilt free to toss it and start another?
