If you’ve read this blog for long, you know I have a problem with books. I love to read. A few years ago (2014) I bought a paperwhite kindle. In the years since I have aquired around 537 books . Those are only the books I haven’t read. That’s a lot of books. There’s also around 20 books on my bookshelf I need to read!
Most of these books were free or spur of the moment purchases. Some I started and hated. A few are classics I know I will never read.
I’m going to look at the 5 oldest books on my Kindle. Then decide if it’s a book I will read. Then I will chose one to read this month. Similar to the TBR hole.
Water Dance: The Story of a Were-Mermaid (The Sisterhood of the Ring Book 1) By Jay Greenstein
Aug. 2014, It was free and there is a mermaid. It was actually one of the 4 books I purchased when I bought my kindle. The blurb sounds familair, I think I may have started reading it but didn’t finish.
The Summer I Learned to Dive by Shannon McCrimmon
Sept. 2014, This sounds like a YA book. It has pretty good reviews. I don’t know why I haven’t read it. I do see a theme with these books. Do you?
Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie
Sept. 2014, Somethinf I’ve learned about these public domain books. The formatting can be crap. The formatting is weird in this one. There dosne’t seem to be page breaks between sections. The pages just run into each other. I haven’t read this and I’m leaning to just deleting all of the public domain books I have. *sigh*
Turn of the Screw by Henry James
Oct. 2014, Another public domain book. Flipping through the first few pages the formatting looks okay. I think I tried to read this once and gave up. I should probably keep these. I need a book with an ugly/boring cover for a reading challenge.
Too Close to Home (Women of Justice Book #1): A Novel by Lynette Eason
Nov. 2014, I read book 3 in this series which is why I bought book 1. There tend to be full of tension and suspense.
Delete: 2 books deleted- they were free so it’s okay.
TBR: 1 book moved to the top of my TBR list, Too Close to Home
That brings the grand total of unread books on my Kindle to 537!
