Down the TBR Hole // To Read Eventually – Part 3/3

DTTBRH - E

We’re at the Final Hurdle!

This week will be the last week I go through all of my shelves!

I’ve nearly made it! Just a little bit further!

It feels good to have shed unnecessary books along with the self-imposed pressure to read them!

This past year has been all about shedding unneeded and unwanted shit for me and I’m glad to be able to put it all behind me!
