Read it or Ditch it: The Catch-Up Post

read it or ditch it

“Read it or Ditch it” is a new weekly feature I’ll be doing each Monday on the blog. The goal is to force myself into making a decision regarding some titles on my TBR pile. Each week I’ll select a book that has sat unread on my shelves for longer than a year and ask the question “Read it or Ditch it?”. If I still want to read it, then by posting it here I’m claiming that I’ll read it by the end of the year. If I’m no longer interested in the book, then this is a send off to the title since I’ll either be donating or selling it.

At the end of the year, I’ll do a round-up post to see how I did. If there are any titles that I said I’d read, but still didn’t, then I’ll either donate or sell those. Hopefully, doing this will help me reach my goal of only 100 books sitting unread on my TBR pile by the end of 2016.

Since we’re inching closer to the end of the year, I figured I should do a check-in on the status of my “Read it” and “Ditch it” selections.

Read it

In total, I’ve committed to reading 13 books on my TBR pile before the end of the year. From that list I’ve read 2 (yikes!). I obviously need to get rolling on these before I run out of time. Here’s the books I said I’d read (the titles that are in bold are the ones I’ve finished).


Ditch It

I’ve also managed to let 18 books on my TBR go, which is pretty good.

    • Thanks, Danya! Oh I think I’ll always be behind on my TBR pile as well. I’m just hoping to get it down to a more manageable size. 😛 And thanks! I do love Harper’s Alaska books. That one is the only one I haven’t actually gotten around to reading yet.


  1. This is cool, I’ve been curious where you were with your Read-It pile. I remember Steelheart not working for you too well, that’s too bad. I hope it won’t put you off from any more future Sanderson books though, his style is all over the place so there may be something more to your liking! I’m also curious to see what you’ll make of The Night Circus, I vote that one 🙂

    • Yeah, I’m planning to give some of Sanderson’s other books a shot. I have another of his sitting on my kindle right now. I actually started Night Circus a few months ago, but put it down to read something else. I need to get back around to it.
