2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

 
This will be my first ever challenge and I am quite excited. Go over to Bookish to find out more. Basically it will help me get through my never ending TBR list and I am aiming for the 50+ books level. 

So the most books I have ever read in one year is just over 200. Have no idea what happened that year but it's probably never going to happen again. So my main aim is to read 100 books every year. I'm ahead of schedule this year so hopefully I can do it. For this challenge I will aim to read 50 books - as they have to be 2013 or before reads and there's a good chance I will want to read a lot of 2014 releases as well. 

I may add a list of planned reads soon but I have almost 400 books that are in my TBR pile - 250, give or take some, are ones I've bought and never read (What is wrong with me?), then about 65 from the library (eeeeek!) and way too many to count waiting on my kindle. So I have to go through them and try and decide where to start. 

The blog is going to host monthly Read-A-Longs with prizes, giveaways and monthly wrap-ups that you can link too. Sounds like a lot of fun so I am quite excited. 

Anyone got any challenges planned for next year? Or any plans to get through those never ending TBR piles we all seem to have?

  1. I should do a TBR challenge next year . . . I always forget to, though. Good luck on yours! :) My goal was to read 210 books this year, but I slipped a bit (lots happened this summer that got in the way; silly summer).

    1. Wow 210 is a lot of books! Now that I'm working & blogging & trying to keep a social life, I realise how much less time I have for reading =(. Hopefully I don't forget this one but you never know!

    1. I know, mine is never ending and I will just add hundreds more in 2014, but at least I can try.

  3. I have so many books in my TBR pile that it's ridiculous. This challenge may be just what I need to get off my butt and read them.

    1. That's how I felt too, that TBR pile is never ending so this should help me get through some of them.
