Offloading the TBR #7

For this fortnight I have 100 books which were added between April 2013 and May  2014. Looks I had finally slowed down on adding Goodreads’ recommendations willy-nilly

Previously on “Offloading the TBR” -> #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5 | #6

Culling time!

If you see any books you loved on the cull list and think I should read them, I AM SO SORRY but I can’t! I read through a hundred synopses for this post, and depending on various factors like availability of book, intent to commit to long series, etc – I know I don’t want to read them anymore.

Started with : 2003 books in TBR

Ended with : 1927 books in TBR
