Do you ever unhaul any of your unread books? How do you go about choosing the books?

I read a small portion of each of these books in an effort to begin the unhaul process. It ended up being easier than I‘d expected. I‘m going to continue to go through my stacks using this method since it definitely worked for me! If you want to know which ones made the cut, check out my latest BookTube video. https://youtu.be/BepW6SYLAGU

marleed I have ikea Billie shelves lining the walls of my ‘reading‘ room. One of the smaller square shelves is my internal Little Free Library. Guests seem to have fun looking at it and almost always take a book or two. I keep it full so sometimes it means stocking with books in which I never got the round tuit! 8h
Butterflyamore @marleed That‘s a great idea! 8h
marleed The added benefit of that shelf - if a book is not on that shelf it‘s not one I‘m ready to ‘lend‘ out ;) 7h

Mehso-so

So for the most part I enjoyed it. It‘s heavy (I can do heavy) but the ended what losing me. Had to relisten a few times... then downloaded the ebook and read the ending to grasp it because it was tuning it out.., the author‘s tone was hard to engage at times) ... pick print over audio.

Catching up on #Adventrecommends, this is my recommendation for day 6

This book shows all the injustice in the world and how certain groups of people (African Americans, the poor, mental disability and reading disability) are more likely to suffer from this injustice

TiredLibrarian This book is so powerful. Loved it. 2d

Pickpick

I‘d read Flamethrowers, so I thought I had a handle on Kushner‘s writing—but, it would seem that she is a literary shapeshifter. I enjoyed Flamethrowers, but loved The Mars Room. This book is truly a stunning achievement. A lot of research must have gone into this novel, as it feels utterly authentic. Wondering if Rachel spent time in stir. Big love.

So this was put on my #TBRRead after #Murderino Georgia mentioned it on #MFM podcast. This isn‘t a Holiday book but it will be my commute to and from book and shower book :)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bryan Stevenson, co-founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, has dedicated his life to fighting our often unjust US justice system. These cases are eye-opening, infuriating, and uncomfortable. I picked this up based on a recommendation from The Well-Read Podcast - thanks, Ann!

Nebklvr About 30% in and it is rage inducing 5d
britt_brooke @Nebklvr It truly is. 😤😔 5d
vivastory Was he in the documentary based on grisham's nf book? 5d

britt_brooke @vivastory Hmm, I haven‘t seen it, but the circumstances are definitely similar. There‘s an HBO documentary about Stevenson, but I haven‘t seen that either. 5d
EliNeedsMoreShelves I have never cried as much - at any book, fiction or nonfiction - as I did while reading this. Really interested in the movie adaptation coming out! 5d
TheBookHippie The kids one is really good as well. 5d
vivastory I thought that the documentary was worth watching, it's a bit slow starting but it pays off IMO 5d
KathyWheeler Bryan Stevenson spoke at my university last year. He‘s fantastic and really inspiring! 5d
Nebklvr Well-read podcast? Hmm... have to check that one out. Listen to What should I read next podcast and it is good. 5d
britt_brooke @Nebklvr Yes, it‘s a bimonthly podcast by two librarians, and one is a Litten who I have the pleasure of knowing IRL. I like What Should I Read Next, too! 💚 (edited) 5d
Nebklvr @britt_brooke Thanks for the info!! I love book related podcasts 5d
ferskner Awwwww thanks for the shout-out! 4d

Ahhh!!! Thank you @Kaylamburson ♡ That was SO incredibly thoughtful of you to gift me TWO books and THREE goodies. I love the planner stuff. Thank you SO much. That is right up my alley. And I loooove the bookmark. Truly a huge delight. I can't wait to read the tagged book and I'm so sorry about buying the other book like a dumb dumb 🤦🏼‍♀️🤣 she's my favorite cozy mystery author and I just couldn't wait. But I love the memory this made haha!

SamanthaMarie #LitsyLove Swap. Really appreciate all the work that went into this!! Thank you Litsy Love ♡ 6d
Kaylamburson I'm so glad you loved it all! I got a bunch of blank bookmarks like that so I can design my own. I'm glad you love it! And don't even worry! Haha. I'm sure you'll find someone who will appreciate that copy lol. I second your note to #LitsyLove. Thanks for organizing, @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 5d
