I’ve had Killing the TBR on hold for a while. Honestly, it got a little tedious to read three books per month that I wasn’t really into, and for no good reason. I mean, if I’m going to buy a book, I’m going to buy a book. No “reading challenge” is going to stop me from doing it, right?
So I held off. The holidays were a little crazy. I don’t even know where January went. But now I’m ready to start this thing up again, but with a few changes.
- I no longer need to own a book for a full year before it qualifies. (After all, I’ll run out of choices eventually, won’t I?) Now, the book must be at least one month old.
I’ve created a page listing all books that qualify for the challenge.
- The challenge is going to run on a monthly basis now. No keeping track of strange 30-day periods. It’s officially from the first day of the month to the last day.
- Gone are the days of trying to fit in three books per month while still completing my yearly reading challenge and keeping up with ARC’s. Now it’s a minimum of one book per month.
- I’ll post all the books that I read the previous month that qualified. The reward is my TBR pile getting smaller. I’ll also try to remember to tag these reviews for the challenge. If I don’t read any books that qualify in a particular month, I’ll made a sad post in which I share how disappointed I am in myself.
That’s it. The new and improved KILLING THE TBR challenge. Are you with me? Are you ready to tackle your TBR pile?
