The purpose of this challenge is to help clear out some (or many) of those books taking up space on our e-readers. You know them, the books you added because they were free, really cheap, quite pretty or just seemed a bit interesting. Now you’ve got to decide if you’re really gonna keep and read them or is it time to toss?!
Would you like to join in on this challenge? Here are some suggested guidelines:
- Make a list of the books on your kindle/ e-reader under consideration.
- Select the first 3 or 4 (or more depending on your mood).
- Read the blurbs of the books.
- Decide if you’re going to keep and read; or discard from the TBR.
- Announce your verdict.
- The next time you’re ready to post, continue from where you left off on your list.
If you’d like to create a little community spirit to build up encouragement to really get this list sorted, join in!
- Write a post saying you’re taking part in this challenge/ meme.

Double, double toil and trouble…
The pets in these cozy paranormal short stories are stirring up nothing but fun—and maybe a dash of trouble—for the witches in their lives. Visit these seven magical worlds in new stories created exclusively for the anthology written by:
M.Z. Andrews, Morgana Best, Molly Milligan, Amy Boyles, Annabel Chase, H.Y. Hanna, and Gina LaManna..
My verdict: My first instinct was to say delete… I mean another compilation?! But then I noted it’s a compilation of shorts and the total page count is just under 500. Not too bad. I’ll keep.
Previously published as Christmas at the Contraband Cafe, this book is a perfect Christmas novella for fans of fun, festive fiction.
Chloe Charlesworth has had the week from hell. Not only did she have her dream job as a fashion journalist, snatched away from her, then her aunt breaks her leg. So, Chloe leaves London on a mercy dash to Rum Cove in North Yorkshire to help run her aunt’s businesses, the Contraband Café and trekking centre. Chloe imagines she will be simply popping in to check that her aunt has the right help, but when she accidentally poisons her aunt’s horses and argues with the local vet, she feels obligated to help out with the numerous Rum Cove’s Christmas events, which all centre around the Contraband Café. But, Chloe is desperate to get back to London, move in with her boyfriend, Marcus, and find another journalism job, the only trouble being that he doesn’t seem too keen on the idea.
Rum Cove, an old fishing village, is undeniably beautiful and the locals very friendly, except for the local vet Luke, who is appallingly rude and arrogant. Thankfully Marcus decides to visit and Chloe soon realises that she has some serious decisions to make. A sparkling, Christmas romance.
My verdict: Hmm… some of these books have been on my kindle for so long a few have even been updated! Here’s another one of those. But it is a Christmas novella, and I’m such a sucker for those…. keep!
Anna has never been the beautiful one; she’s always been the nice one. So when the gorgeous man sitting across the table at a wedding reception remembers her from high school–and quite fondly at that–she’s taken off guard.
Formerly overweight and unpopular, Kiran has never forgotten Anna, the one person who was kind to him when no one else could be bothered, and Anna’s a bit flustered as she slowly comes to grips with his intense attraction for her.
In what feels like a romantic dream come true, all-grown-up, hunky Kiran invites Anna on a trip to Varanasi. But her troubled, whack-a-do ex-boyfriend starts interfering, creating drama at every turn, which begs the question, “Can nice girls really finish first?”
My verdict: I have two minds about this one. I’d seen positive reviews of this a couple years ago and it looks cute and fun but is it really anything unique? I’ll give the first few chapters a try, at least.
Death is natural. Murder isn’t.
Mercy loves her job. Traveling is the fun part. New coworkers aren’t. She thinks she knows what’s in store for her at a Nebraska nursing home. But within hours of her arrival, a man is dead, and she’s in way over her head.
Sheriff Charlie Wagner is a no-nonsense guy. When he’s called to investigate a suspicious death, it doesn’t take long to figure out the situation is anything but ordinary, including the chatty, quick-tempered traveling nurse. He needs to find the murderer. She needs to prove her innocence.
My verdict: Looks okay but doesn’t really pull at me… and it’s already 12 books in. I’ll pass
One ditched, one maybe and two for sure keeps. Not horrible but still… that list needs to be cut some more!
Have a lovely weekend!
