A Little TBR Purge to Start the Day

I have been perusing the blog-o-sphere lately for a fun new book meme, and I came across the perfect one: “Down the TBR Hole” created by Lia @ Lost in A Story!

Basically this is a post dedicated to cleaning out your Goodreads TBR (because don’t lie, you’ve gone on a “want to read” button pushing spree as well) by sorting through books you know you will never read and figuring out which ones you will actually read!

There is so much to consider when picking up a book based on how it looks: the cover yes, but also the spine details, the back cover, the pages (are they deckled?! are they sprayed?!), the title pages, the chapter headers, the naked spine, the naked hardcover, and I could go on and on because I just love all of the aspects and characteristics that go into making a book beautiful and unique.
