Bookish Ardour is hosting the Off the Shelf! reading challenge 2011.
I have so many books on my TBR shelves it quite overwhelms me. One of my goals for the year is to read at least one per month off them. I am signing up for the Trying level which is read 15. I really hope I can do it. It is going to be a very busy year for me. :)
Are your books multiplying like rabbits before you even get a chance to read them? Trying to keep up with them, but can't stop buying new ones?
Maybe this challenge is for you. I know what it's like. There's so many titles and so many beautiful books out there sometimes it's hard to keep that TBR shelf under control, but if you really want to try why not challenge yourself?
The challenge begins on the 1st of January and ends on the 31st of December 2011
Note: This challenge is to read those books you own copies of, but have never got around to reading. If you don't have many that you own, but have a massive TBR shelf you're welcome to read those ones as long as you don't add new ones. You don't need to actually get rid of your books after you've read them, this is just to read them.
