“Take a Bite Out of Your Aged TBR Romance Pile”-Found on Bitten By Romance.

2015 Reading Challenge

Are you bad about marking books “to be read” or “want to read” and forgetting about them?

When was the last time you reviewed your entire TBR pile only to find some were placed on the list 3, 4 or 5 years ago?


Take a
bite out of as many books you’ve marked “to read” during the past few years as
possible from Jan 1, 2015 to Dec 31, 2015.
Since this is a romance blog, at least 80 percent
of what you read for the challenge must be romance (including all the romance
sub-genres) novels or novellas. The remaining 20 percent may be non-romance
titles (for example urban fantasy, fantasy, science fiction, mainstream
fiction, mystery, horror, etc.).
The books you read must have been marked “to be
read” or bought “to be read” prior to 2014. So, if you marked a book “to read”
or bought a book during 2014, those books do not count. The book(s) must have
been marked, or bought, “to be read” during 2013 or earlier.

with my goal to help lower that pile down just a bit.
