Project Try a Chapter Introduction

In the interest of prepping for 2020 and wanting to start the year with a clean slate, I’ve been hard at work culling my bookshelves and feeling horrified over the number of unread books that are sitting on my shelves.  Since I’m an organized-and-has-a-spreadsheet-for-everything kind of girl, it was really simple for me to separate what I had into four categories: 1) keep, 2) definite tbr, 3) unhaul and 4) try a chapter.  Since my try a chapter pile ended up being a bit overwhelming, I decided to create a post series where I go through them all.  Each post will include roughly 3-5 books grouped into a specific genre or category.  Once I’ve read the first chapter of each book, I’ll report back here on my first impression and feelings as well as whether I’ve decided to shift the book to my definite TBR or throw it into the unhaul pile.  Below is my embarrassingly large pile (don’t judge me). Here’s a to a much more manageable TBR in 2020!

    I actually just started The Invisible Library, it’s really action packed right from the start, and Soulless is so good! The Parasol Protectorate is one of my favorite series.

  2. Yesss I’m doing essentially the same thing, except picking a color for each month and pulling three books with that color on the cover/spine!

  3. That is quite the pile! I remember doing this a couple years ago before I moved. In the end it felt so nice to have them sorted and to decide which books I genuinely wanted to read.

    I believe in you, Kristin! Your Project Try a Chapter is going to go well, and I definitely think it’ll help you whittle down your TBR.

  5. This is a great way to unload books! I actually have a huge TBR pile right now, but some of the books are seasonal or I’m not in the mood to read them now, but I want to keep them when I do want to read them.

  6. I do something similar and will try 3-5 books in a group while picking my next book to read. Which leads to a lot of skimming but also has been super helpful in cutting down my books to read that I already own.

    Don’t worry I’m just as bad. I’ve been trying to clear out some of my books, but most of them I have not read. So I think I might try what you are doing.
