This week’s topic actually fits well in my ongoing project of clearing out the books that don’t bring me joy. I went through my shelves of unread books, both physical and virtual, and pulled out some that have been hanging around for a long time. Let’s face it, if I haven’t read them yet, I’m probably not going to… and if I change my mind, there’s always the library and Amazon.
If you see a book you think was really good… that’s great. Really! I’m glad you enjoyed it. But I can’t read everything, and I’ve still got two whole bookcases of unread books to find time to read. There are more books in this world than anyone can read in a lifetime, and I’ve got to prioritize somehow!
- Catch as Cat Can (Claire Donally)
- Fat Cat at Large and Fat Cat Takes the Cake (Janet Cantrell)
- A Song for Arbonne (Guy Gavriel Kay)
- Unlock the Truth (Robena Grant)
- A Live Coal in the Sea (Madeleine L’Engle)
- The Girl Who Chased the Moon (Sarah Addison Allen)
- Vampires, Bones, and Treacle Scones (Kaitlyn Dunnett)
All of these will go to the used bookstore or the library’s booksale. (Most of them came from the library booksale, so it seems only fair to take them back there.)
Books from my Kindle Library
- Dead is the New Black (Christine D. Rice)
- Magic of Thieves (C. Greenwood) (not pictured)
- The Haunted Fixer-Upper (Rose Pressey)
- Game, Set, Match (Nana Malone)
- Shoe Strings (Christie Hayes)
- Moonlit (Jadie Jones) (not pictured)
- Another Saturday Night and I Ain’t Got No Body (Jennie Marts)

I’ve deleted these from my Kindle library. They were all freebies (not ARCs), so I didn’t even lose any money… but now I don’t have to feel guilty for not reading them.
Are there books you’ve decided no longer interest you?
