Bites
August 2, 2011
Well, I get a bit of a reprieve this month because I did a pretty big purge on my pile. I actually went through my tangible TBR pile and weeded out books that really didn’t grab me anymore. That resulted in a large shipping bill once I put everything onto PaperBackSwap and BookMooch. I did the same thing with NetGalley and then realized that a lot of the books I had left had already been archived because I waited too long. D’oh! So I saw a drastic reduction in that list as well, just inadvertently.
Let’s look at the stats –
