Inspired by book blogger Davida, at The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog, herself inspired by a couple of other bloggers (see here for instance). I plan to post about it on Saturdays, except the 1st Sat of the month, when I usually feature another meme.
The rules are simple:
- Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf from oldest to new
- Pick the first 5 or 10 (or whatever number you choose, depending on how large your list is) books you see
- Decide whether to keep them or get rid of them.
I’m finally back on this feature, after a few months away from it!
RESULTS FOR PREVIOUS READ OR SKIP
I’ll keep 28, 29, 31, and 32
And Skip: 30, 33, 34, and 35
READ OR SKIP #9
Let’s see what YOU think about these 9 titles today:
- I have read lots of similar books
- BUT it’s by a great author
- I enjoy Hungarian lit
- I’m intrigued by the theme of language and words
34) Beside the Sea
- A popular French author I haven’t read yet. And it’s short!
- I’ll read it in French.
- I haven’t read Chevillard either
- But today, the synopsis isn’t that attractive
36) Papa doit manger
- Another famous French author yet to discover!
- And it’s short, and an opportunity to read a play. I may even watch it, if I find it
- Not sure why I added this one to my list!
- I have never read Sebald, and it seems original
- But should I read another one by him
39) Seven Days on the Roads of France
- By an Orthodox author that I really enjoy
- About nature, from an unusual perspective
What do YOU think? What would you do for 32 and 38?

I ALSO WELCOME SUGGESTIONS
FOR GOOD BOOKS ON SIMILAR THEMES
38 – You are wrong – that is all…
So glad to have your input. But, it would be helpful if you said a bit more, thanks. I don’t even know how to interpret. In what way am I wrong? Hesitating about this book? Finding it original? Please explain
It’s a wonderful book and would be the first of your list to try.
I appreciate your input, thanks!
I haven’t read any of them so I can’t give you great advice but I’m intrigued by Paris.
It could be interesting for sure
You know, when I look at my TBR lists sometimes, I think it is all about the mood I am in at the time. I can’t bear to delete any titles because who knows?
I read Austerlitz by Sebald. I barely understood a word at the time.
The mood is indeed important to, but there are really too many books on my list. But it could happen that I bump into a deleted book from my list, and at a time when it talks to me more, and I could try it
I don’t actually know anything about any of these books, but it’s good that you’re clearing off what you might not get to! I like how you take a picture from Goodreads. I need to figure out how to do that, might save me some time on my post. So glad to see others doing this same type of thing. Thanks for the links to check them out, and thanks for visiting my similar post at Lisa Loves Literature.
Thanks for your comment. For the general picture, it’s simply a screen shot. Go to the screen you want to take a picture of, then click on the PrtScn key on your keyboard – on a PC, it’s after the long line of F. Nothing seems to happen, that’s normal. Then open Paint, or any other picture program, or even Word, and Paste (CTRL+ P), et voilà, here is your picture. Then you can edit it. I give it the hyperlink of my TBR Goodreads shelf
