TBR Shelf, 2019

For a few years there I was keeping up on a TBR shelf posting pretty regularly, but the last couple years I fell off badly. However, inspired by

1. an ever-growing TBR shelf (againstillalways)
2. an EMBARRASSINGLY low number of books read last year, and
3. a conversation with a friend

I have decided to declare 2019 the Year Of Clearing The TBR Shelf.

I may also declare it the Year of Re-Reads, as I really want to re-read John Lee’s Unicorn Saga to see if I still need to be carrying those books around in print (not that I can find them available in e-book). Same with Julie Dean Smith’s Caithan Crusade, which ARE available in e-books (with lovely covers, too!), and…well, I’d like to re-read Michelle Sagara’s whole Cast series, but perhaps I shouldn’t be overly ambitious right now. :)
