Hi folks and happy Sunday. We haven’t done this for a while! My TBR is at 1942 (which, coincidentally was the year my father was born). Let’s see if we can reduce it a little.
This prompt was created by Lost in a Story to help you reduce your Goodreads TBR.
How to play:
- Go to your Goodreads TBR
- Put into descending order by date added
- Look at the first 5 books
- Read the synopsis
- Decide if they stay or go.
Thoughts: I’m pretty sure this was recommended to me by a coworker a number of years ago. This looks awful. GAWN!
Thoughts: Oh look, a dead white guy! No thanks.
Thoughts: Oh look, ANOTHER dead white guy. Pass.
Thoughts: I would like to read the Dhammapada but no longer hold any belief that I would be able to gain anything from reading the verses as they are. I’ll find something with commentary.
This one is actually on my shelves. I have a fascination/horror of the awful stuff that has been and continues to happen in North Korea. This one is a keeper.
And that brings us to the end of today’s excursion. Have you read any of these?
