Clear Off Your Shelves Challenge




I saw a post about this challenge at bermudaonions blog and knew it was right for me. The ins and outs can all be found here at S. Krishna's Books but the gist is to count only books that you have had in your possession for at least six months. You don't predict a number read but rather a percentage of the total books you read during the challenge time frame, October 1, 2009 – November 30, 2009.

This challenge came into my life at just the right time. I just did a post for Book Blogger Appreciation Week showing my TBR pile. That got me thinking about how old some of them might be and I remembered this post where I listed my TBR pile almost a year ago! A quick glance comparing the two showed me there was some overlap!

I'm going for 20%. I'll keep you posted about my progress.

I don't want to think about how long some books have been on my TBR List! Like you, this challenge came at a good time for me too. Have fun reading and crossing the titles off your list.

I really hope this helps me clear out my pile. There are so many books that I bought last year that I have not read yet. I am good with my ARCs. The ARCs get read but the others, not so much.

Actually, only the review books have a six month limit - the regular books can be from anytime! Thanks for signing up!
