Culling The Heard of Books

 

I did my first Culling The Heard post back in March. You can check it out here

 

When I started this new Culling The Heard post, My Goodreads TBR was 1197, at the end it’s down to 1100. I removed 97 books off my TBR. WOW!!

 

Goodreads is a great place to keep track of all those book you want to read. It’s been a godsend in that area, but unfortunately when I started I would put a whole series or all of the authors work on my TBR. Now I want to clean up my TBR.

 

My plans: With series books I plan to have the first book on my TBR. If I like it and want to continue the series then I’ll add the next book. As for other books on my TBR some I’m no longer interested in anymore, others are no longer in print, and last some I can’t remember why I put them on my TBR in the first place, so I’m removing them off the TBR pile.

Book Tag: Would You Rather?

 

I ran across this book tag on Rantings of a Reading Addict and she found it at Sincerely, A Book Nerd. Stop on by both sits and see what they had to say to the Would You Rather Book Tag.

 

Rather read only series or standalone books?

 

Series books. 

 

Rather read a book whose main character is male or female?

 

No preferences. 

 

Rather shop only at Barnes & Noble (or other actual bookstore) or Amazon?

 

Amazon

 

Rather all books become movies or tv shows?

 

Hmm… I feel that books that become movies or tv shows don’t live up to the book. But, if I had to choose I’d say tv show. 

 

Rather read 5 pages per day or read 5 books per week?

 

5 books a week

 

Rather be a professional book reviewer or an author?

 

Reviewer. I have no design to be an author. I love reading and moving from one fantasy world to another. 

 

Rather only read the same 20 books over and over or get to read a new book every 6 months?

 

New book every 6 months

 

 

Rather be a librarian or own a book store?

Oh this one’s tough. I like both options. I’d have to go with librarian. I can enjoy all the books, without the hassle of having overhead or pay rent. 

 

Rather only read your favorite genre or your favorite author?

 

Genre

 

Rather only read physical books or eBooks?

 

Oh man another difficult question. I like have both options. eBooks for the simple fact I can carry as many as I want around on one device, but I also love physical books because of the feel and smell. So, if I have to pick I’d stick with physical books even though my hubby dislikes all the physical books in our home ^_^. 

 

This tag had some interesting questions. I’d love to hear your thoughts and answers to the questions!

Prime Box for Kids

 

Amazon is rolling out a Prime Box for Kids. It’s by invite only at this time. I’ve never done a box of books before, even the adult boxes that get offered from other company’s I’ve not done. I use my library or I buy the books I want when I want, but I received an invite to the program and will be trying out the service. I feel more apt to do this for my kid then to splurge on myself. I’ll share with you what I get and how we liked the books once the program gets started.

 

What is Prime Box for Kids?

 

Story time just got better with Prime Book Box, a subscription that delivers hand-picked children’s books every 1, 2, or 3 months. Discover new favorites that inspire a love of reading—new adventures await in every box!

 

Prime Book Box saves you up to 35% off List Price, and provides the best value on books sold by Amazon.com.

 

What’s in a Prime Book Box?

 

  • Each box contains 2 hardcover books or 4 board books.
  • Below are just a few examples of the books you could receive.
