2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge


2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge


We all have those books. We buy them, win them, they're gifted to us. Then we put them up on a bookshelf and there they stay, collecting dust, waiting for the time when we'll finally decide to pick them up. Join us on a quest to dust off your TBR Pile and read all the books you've been telling yourself you'll read next time you'll get a chance. This is your chance! And we've got PRIZES!!! :D

This is such an excellent idea! I tend to get the majority of my books at super discounted prices via used book sales. This is awesome for my wallet, but not so great for the books. I will often get quite a few at once and read one or two of them, but then my attention span fails. I want to read that new book that just came out, or that novel I was in 978493th place in at the library has finally arrived. And the rest of my newly acquired stack moves to The Shelf (or the desk drawer, the plastic drawer, a box...you get the idea). This challenge is perfect. I am setting my goal at 12 books; one book a month definitely seems doable. We'll see how it goes!

My List (subject to change):

001. The Morning Gift by Eva Ibbotson
002. Summer in the City by Elizabeth Chandler
003. A historical by Judith McNaught
004. A classic
005. A general fiction book
006. A contemporary romance
007. Open
008. Open
009. Open
010. Open
011. Open
012. Open

Psst! I now reside over at The Book Barbies. I'd still love to hear your thoughts, though!
