My Bookish Delights (my_bookish_delights) | 19 comments I bought so many books in 2017 so I must get through as many as I can! Not to mention the hundreds of ebooks I still haven't read on my Kindle. I did fairly well last year, but with so many new books I'm feeling pretty positive about this year! :)


Hilary (A Wytch's Book Review) (knyttwytch) Happy reading!

My Bookish Delights (my_bookish_delights) | 19 comments Unhaul Note: I'm not going to count these books as there are way too many, but I did purge some books in the month of April.

I got my ebooks down from 585 to 94!!

I also purged 76 physical books from my shelves. I had read 18 of them. A few of them were duplicate copies. Others were series I owned and tried, but decided to let go of. The rest were books I hadn't read yet and didn't think I was going to.

I am getting closer to doing a purge, at least of my Kindle. Congratulations on your successful weeding out of books!
