Book Un-haul: June 2016

Today I have a post I've been meaning to put together for quite a while now. Several months ago I reorganized my book shelves. I have already featured a tour of my main living-room shelf and have two more that need to be photographed and posted. I will get to those, but first I wanted to share a bunch of books I have decided to get rid of.

Unfortunately I won't be able to send any of them away due to the outrageous postage costs, so I will be donating the whole pile to my local library.

Here are the books I will be parting with:
(Click on the links to be taken to the Goodreads page for each book)

This first picture is of books I have read, but didn't like for various reasons, most of which I couldn't connect with. I gave each of these a 2.5 rating or less and one of these books I decided to DNF. I don't have any plans of re-reading any of these titles.

  1. Tiger: A Story of Vengeance and Survival by John Vaillant
  2. The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker
  3. A Tiny Bit of Marvellous by Dawn French
  4. The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
  5. The Time is Now by Pauline McLynn (DNF)
  6. Never on a Sundae by Wendy Markham 

         I enjoyed reading this first book, but don't plan on re-reading it.

  1. Tapestry (Werner Family Saga #3) by Belva Plain 

    The second book I DNF'ed because I couldn't get into the story or its characters.
  2. The Shipping News by Annie Proulx

    The third book is a discard from my partner
  3. Conan the Defender by Robert Jordan

    Books 4 &5 were given to me by a friend, but their plots don't interest me. 
  4. Born to Die (To Die, #3) by Lisa Jackson
  5. Smash Cut (Mitchell and Associates #1) by Sandra Brown

    I have a much nicer hardcover copy of book 6. 
  6. The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon #2) by Dan Brown

I wasn't interested in any of these books with the exception of Angels and Demons, which is a duplicate copy. 

The first three books in this picture didn't interest me and the last book I've read several times. 

And these last three books are ones I have read by didn't love and don't plan on reading again.
