    I haven’t ever perma-deleted books from my cloud accounts, but I think I would like to with at least some of them. Good food for thought.

    And while I like the idea of tracking time read instead of books read, I don’t think it would work for me. I read at no specific time, or in no specific chunk — I could read before bed, or over lunch, or while waiting in line at the post office — and I think trying to remember to track it would stress me out. (Evidence: I tried using the Bookly reading app, which tracks time read, and it made me less likely to read during those quick few-minute-long chunks of time because tracking it wasn’t worth it.)

      There are some freebies I picked up when I first started getting Kindle books, and I would totally delete those. It’s been years and I have had no interest in reading any of them. But I’ll probably keep most of the rest of my Kindle library.

      I agree that tracking reading time would be too difficult for me. I read in snatches as well as in longer chunks of time. And I don’t want to have to jump out of bed to record how long I read before putting the book down to go to sleep!

    Yeah, there are some freebies I got early on, and some books in genres I don’t read any more that I know I won’t read again, so I need to remember to go perma-delete those. But in general, I figure they aren’t taking up any physical space so I don’t really worry about it.

    Yup, there’s a reason I no longer try to use that app. I like the concept and the way it looks, but tracking time read just doesn’t work for me.

      It’s true the books aren’t taking up physical space, and I use that reasoning too… but I am finding it harder to browse through what I own, now that it’s over 1000 books.
