2019 has arrived and I am determined to read some of my TBR books. Since I started blogging, ARCs and books for blog tours have kind of taken over. Don’t get me wrong, its AMAZING. However, there are a TON of books I own but haven’t read because they just get pushed back.
So, my awesome blogger friend, Kimberly Faye Reads, created a challenge. You can check out the full details on her post, but here is my plan for this challenge:
- I am going for the Blitz level (13-24 books). That is 2 books a month from my TBR. However, I am not holding myself to getting 2 a month. If I get none one month and 4 another, great. As long as by the end of the year I’m between 13-24 books, I will consider it a success.
- I am going to continue with my ARCs and such; they just won’t count for this challenge.
- Books that will count for this challenge are any books I own prior to 2019, or any book I buy upon release that has been on my TBR on Goodreads.
I am keeping it SIMPLE. If I have learned anything about my reading habits, if I make a list or in any way box myself in, I will fail. I will fail epically! So, I am hoping by keeping this pretty undefined I will be more successful. I am also starting a shelf on goodreads to track, so you can check that out too!
I’m doing something similar with about 2 a month of hopefully one I have already purchased or planned to read for awhile. Good luck! Anne – Books of My Heart
TBR challenges are always great. I know I neglect the books I own all the time. Good luck!
You have a great goal for 2019!
Mine isn’t solidified, but I want to de-clutter my bookshelves. I did a cull recently, where I took all the books I own that I haven’t read yet, and if i felt like I wasn’t going to read the book in the next 5 years, I put it in the “donate” box. And honestly, if 5 years go by, and I decide that I do want to read it? I can easily get it from the library, or get a cheap paperback, or something.
Anyway, it felt really good to let go of a lot of those books. I hope to continue doing that this year. I still have 6 bookshelves jam packed with books, and stacks of books next to and in front of them. Would like to keep the stacks to a minimum!
