Yes, I have managed to be ruthless (well, semi-ruthless), and now my TBR stack is down by 35. There was probably another 15 that could have gone, but I will save that for next time since I am thinking of making this an annual event. If those books have not been touched by next year, they too shall go.
I am strange, and I fully embrace my strangeness. But it was even new depths of odd for me when I RAN into a book store with two bags of books, threw them on the counter and said “all yours!” and ran back out. I looked like a bank robber, but I was scared I would change my mind. Then I bought chocolate as a reward for good behavior.
