DNF Adventures

Hey! What did you do this week? I celebrated finishing an edit by getting stuck into a Book Purge.

As I've mentioned many times here and on Twitter, during pre-pandemic times hubby and I used to go for many thrift store adventures. During those adventures I picked up a LOT of books. So many books that asides from filling up a wall of bookshelves in our bedroom and several other spots in the living room, there are book piles everywhere.

Seriously, between our books, games and collectibles it's like living in a library. And I love it! 😅

BUT, sometimes when I look around at all the books, I realise it's time to go through these piles and sample some of these (many) books. So, that's exactly what I did this week. And ended up finding a bunch of books I can't wait to read, others I couldn't get into, and some that were in such shitty condition it was time to let them go.

Anyway, this is what we ended up donating to a bunch of local Street Libraries:

  • Sunday: 11 books
  • Monday: 7 books
  • Tuesday: 7 books
  • Wednesday: 13 books
  • Thursday: 1 book
  • Friday: 3 books
  • Saturday: 12 books
  • Sunday: 10 books
That's a total of 64 books!!

Yep. This week I DNFd 64 books that were lying around in piles all over the living room. That's a lot of books and I feel a lot lighter.

I mean, there's no point in holding onto books that I'm not interested in. And I love knowing that by putting them in Street Libraries, other readers will be able to check them out and maybe enjoy them. Actually, several times, we've noticed some of the books gone the next day. 😄

Another thing I wanted to mention was that because I DNFd so many books and most of these only took a chapter, sometimes even a few pages for me to put them aside, I didn't bother adding them to my Goodreads reading total. Instead, I deleted them from my bookshelves.

Well, there you go. I just wanted to share my bookish adventures for this week...

Oh, and let me just mention that while I was doing this Book Purge, I ordered other paperbacks and 1-Clicked several Kindle books. 😉

Have a nice day!
