My biggest goal is to have only about five unread books, so I don't feel overwhelmed and can buy and read a book immediately. Since I found out about Booktube I wanted to buy and read all the books (as everyone), but lately I just want to get rid of many I know I don't want to read ever, or anytime soon, or didn't like that much.
At the beginning of the year I also got rid of some books (can't even remember which ones), so now I only have some unread books I'm going to get rid of. There are ten I decided to unhaul, so now I own 37 books unread (which is still a lot, but now I'm excited for all of them). I'm giving them to a local charity shop (the profit goes to a cancer research company). These are the books I'm unhauling:
I'm no longer interested in reading fantasy or long series, so that's why I'm getting rid of A Darker Shade of Magic and A Court of Thornes and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury. I'm also not interested in crime (The Cuckoo's Calling, even though it's written by J.K. Rowling) and I don't see myself reading The Waves, Cujo, Dracula, Far From The Madding Crowd, The Woman in White anytime soon. Those editions are really pretty though, so it's a pain in the ass that I'm getting rid of those beautiful Penguin English Library and Word Cloud classic. But if I do want to read them I can buy them again (but that won't be for quite a few years). Oliver Twist is one I still want to read, but I just don't like those editions (really small font so unpleasant to read).
Now I hope I don't "have" to get rid of some more books next year, but I don't think that will happen.
Do you unhaul books or do you keep them al?
