I don't know why I try to force myself to like cheesy romances, because I never do. This one wasn't bad, I just didn't like it because I'm dead inside. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Question for Libby/Kindle users: After you borrow a book through Libby, read on Kindle, and return it, does it eventually disappear from your Kindle cloud library? Its going to drive me nuts if they just hang out there forever! Help!

Kimberlone You have to log into your amazon account and go to the “manage content and devices” section. Then you have to manually delete those checked out books from your content library. I don‘t know if you have to do this with Hoopla but definitely with Libby/Overdrive. 3d
Eyelit What @Kimberlone said. You only have to do this for libby or overdrive borrows. 3d
LaurensLibrary @Kimberlone @Eyelit As long as there is a way to make them go away, I'll do it! Thank you for your help. 3d
See All 6 Comments
Kimberlone @LaurensLibrary it took me awhile to figure out...it also annoyed me to have those checkouts stuck in my library long after they expired 3d
5280reader You are a goddess @Kimberlone . I‘ve been struggling with this as well! Thank you! 3d
whippoorwill815 I‘m not sure if this is exactly what you are asking but I had a hard time figuring out how to get them to disappear off my kindle home screen too even if I had returned them via Libby. You hold down on the cover of the book from the homescreen on the kindle and then a menu will pop up including an option to “return to public library”. Possibly another way to do what you‘re asking? But yeah, it‘s weird. 3d

This is a list of all the #botm books I've ordered and haven't read! Its absurd! So I've created a challenge for myself in 2020 I'm calling the #BOTMBacklog challenge. I'm simply going to try to get through as many of these books as possible in the new year! If anyone else has a big, unread stack of botm books and wants to join, please feel free! 📚😬

Librarybelle Oh! Maybe I will! I too have an amazingly large backlog of BOTM books. Sadly, that doesn‘t stop me from buying more... 2w
Rissa1 I also have a crazy backlog of BOTM . I cannot stop myself. 2w
IamIamIam Good luck!!! 2w

bridge12 I feel this, I actually quit BOTM because it got so bad 2w
Redwritinghood I‘ve been thinking that I need to do the same thing next year. I also have a huge backlog of BOTM books, so I‘ll definitely be joining you. 2w
sprainedbrain I‘m actually planning to do this next year, too! I have 35 BOTM books on my shelves (ugh) and one of my reading goals for #ReadInTheNewYear swap is to read at least one of them per month. Hopefully more, since heaven knows I will be adding more to it every month. 🤣 2w
LaurensLibrary @Librarybelle @Rissa1 I know.. I need to pause my subscription but everytime I do they end up having something I want the following month! 😫 2w
LaurensLibrary @bridge12 I need to quit, but I have an addiction 😫 2w
LaurensLibrary @Redwritinghood Yay! Good luck to you! 2w
LaurensLibrary @sprainedbrain I have over 35, so don't feel bad. Every month I say I'm only going to order 1 book tops, but somehow 2 or 3 always end up in my order.. 😬 2w
sprainedbrain @LaurensLibrary isn‘t it weird how that works? 😂 2w
Callemarie Girl I'm right there with ya 2w
cherinium I'll jump in on that! At the moment, I've got about 25 on that list. I have actually been making a point to get through some of them over the last couple months. I also went through all of my books the other day to see which ones would fit into other challenges I'm planning on doing. 6 of my BOTM TBR fit the bill! #booked2020 #readingeurope2020 #readwithmrbook & now #botmbacklog 21h
