LibraryThing TBR

It’s getting a bit absurd at this point to keep making TBR posts- there’s no way I’m going to encounter all these books in my lifetime, and if I did, I probably wouldn’t have time to read them all! But I guess I just like making lists of books. So, here’s another thing to add to this madness: I found that LibraryThing, where I keep track of my collection, automatically gives me recommendations. These is just based on books I have in my library already. I keep getting suggestions for books of types I don’t really read: political commentaries, steamy romances, mysteries (so I must find and try and cull the titles that are triggering those recommendations out of my library, ha)

In spite of that, surprised that I actually found a lot in the recommendation list that I wanted to make note of (after striking off all the ones that were obviously not to my interest, ones I’ve already read, or tried and didn’t like, etc.) Anyway, here’s the first lot. There’s a ton of backlog I can go through- it saves them all grouped by date, until I clear things out. I’m just going to go through and dismiss/make my own lists from those recommendations, whenever the fancy strikes me!

found at my public library:

Jennifer Murdley’s Toad by Bruce Coville

not at the library either- these are books by authors I already know and like, or titles that are so familiar I think I must have read them in my childhood. I know I read Tin Can Tucker, and I’m pretty sure I once read Savage Sam, maybe also Snowbird and Kazan. It might well be enjoyable to read them again! If found by chance, of course.

  1. I really like your TBR posts, so I’m glad you’ll keep making them! There’s just something really satisfying about seeing all the covers lined up so neatly in rows.

    Looks like I read one of the books on this list, Kazan. You can read that one online for free! Link in my review: https://thistle-chaser.livejournal.com/tag/book%3A%20kazan%20the%20wolf%20dog

    Fire-Hunter looks interesting, I’m going to try to find a copy of that.

    LibraryThing did really well, those books look perfect for you!

    1. Hey good to know, I’ll look for Kazan. I was pretty pleased overall, but you’re not seeing here all the titles I culled out of the list- it did suggest tons that weren’t of interest to me. I think the more I go through those suggestions and decline titles, the tighter it will get at suggesting things I actually like.
