Drastic Decisions

I’m thinking about making a drastic decision. I’m talking a big, burn it all and start again kind of decision.

I’m thinking about slashing my TBR list into ribbons and getting rid of 90% of my unread library.

Here’s the thing.

It doesn’t bring me joy. I look at it and I feel stress about all the books I want to read and haven’t yet. I flip through my notebook of titles and think about how I’ll never read them all because I add titles to it faster than I cross them out.

I’m not sure if I’ll follow through with this but it’s sorely tempting. I would absolutely set some ground rules for keeps. I’d keep books recommended to me by specific people whose tastes I know I can trust. I’d keep books by authors I know I love and want to read. All the other books, though? The ones I picked up on a whim because it sounded interesting? I’m not sure I’d miss them if they were gone. I don’t know that I’d say to myself “hey what about that one book about the thing? why didn’t I keep that one?”

There’s a lot of food for thought in this decision. I’ll keep you updated on my choice!
