Complete Thread
Courtesy of Dove-i-libri.

I'm thinking there might be a way to just add to the initial thread instead of making a new thread every month.


* * * ATTENTION! * * * Let's try this ... Please post your month's entries in this manner:

List *YOUR NAME* and *GOAL* as the title of your thread, and ADD A REPLY for each month. In that reply, list the number, title and author of your TBR book that you finished! Edit that original post to add books as the month progresses! (Follow my lead!)

~~~~~~~~~ ALSO: ~~~~~~~~~~

When you have met your goal, you have accomplished your challenge for the year! We won't be making up new goals through the year. That's just *TOO* confusing. Thank you for carefully considering your goals at the beginning of the challenge!

~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

Quick Review (There will not be a quiz!)

Any book counts, as long as you INTENDED to read it before January 2015. This includes books on hand (As some have pointed out, they may not be registered, but we're on the honor system, OK?) bookrings you've signed up for, bookrays & books from bookboxes you signed up for, even trades you arranged prior to the challenge beginning. Not new purchases, trades, etc AFTER January 1. That would be books ADDED to your pile. We want to REDUCE the piles we have on hand NOW!

Most importantly- THE GOAL IS READ THOSE BOOKS YOU HAVE ON YOUR TBR PILES - AFTER ALL, YOU HAVE THEM BECAUSE YOU WANTED TO READ THEM TO BEGIN WITH, RIGHT???

AND- Don't forget- ENJOY YOURSELF AND EACH OTHERS' COMPANY AND SUPPORT!

Sounds like fun?

~~~~~~~~ (Our Theme!) ~~~~~~~~

A Little Ditty Just for Us! By Arnold Lobel ...
Books to the ceiling!
Books to the sky!
My pile of books is a mile high!
How I love them!
How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them!

~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

* * * If, at any time, the thread becomes TOO large for your computer to load, PLEASE let me know and we'll start a new one * * * *

Good grief - you even name the books. That's way to ambitious for me. I can't even do that in the SIY challenge, which is only 3 months long. Something always hijacks the intention.

 

It's just a list of the "Top Ten" TBRs. This time, it's because I have to read these books next for specific book boxes and book rings. Usually it's because I have offered them and have to send them off as RABCKs. Believe me, the list gets shuffled around a quite bit and it's ONLY the next few books, really. I have over three hundred books here waiting their turn. LOL.

 

Love the T-shirt!

I tried for a lousy 40 last year and didn't make it! LOL! I ~DID~ read 36, though, so I'll make that this year's goal!


HOLY COW! Only FOUR more months to go, and I may not make my little tiny goal ... I took up crocheting & cello lessons, and I've been using Facebook a lot. Looks like my other hobbies are taking a bite out of my reading time. Oh, NO!

At this rate, I'll *NEVER* get to the bottom of that TBR mountain!

I am NOT doing well, it seems. I added two new interests to my life this year - crochet and cello. That seems to have really taken into my reading time. Which is good AND bad. The empty nest had been interesting, but the nestlings are back temporarily, and THAT is taking away some of my reading time, too! LOL! Oh, well, at least every book I HAVE read has been a TBR, and, ultimately, that is my real goal!!! Read that mountain DOWN!

Oh, well, that looks like my total for the year.

 

Well, my life has been racing towards some inevitable goal this year. I have taken cello lessons, have been crocheting, and working more hours than usual while my husband is trying to make a go of a small business. So, I guess my reading time has really taken a hit ... I didn't meet my goal, but almost every book I DID read was from the great Mountain of TBR ... so at least THAT is an accomplishment. Let's see how next year turns out! LOL.

 

This will help until I get a new PC!

I tend to read slowly, so I'll make my goal manageable: 24

I love this challenge!

 

I know. I am always so impressed by the readers who can read close to a hundred or more books a year. I cannot do that, as much as I love to read. Last year, I couldn't even get to 40.

 

This year is off to a slow start with Mount TBR.

1. The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles
2. Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett

 

3. The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith--TBR since 2008

4. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie--TBR since 2008

 

5. If on a winter's night a traveler by Italo Calvino--TBR since 2009! http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7095360

6. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

7. Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach--TBR since 2006! http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/4696895

8. Bleak House by Charles Dickens--TBR since 2004!
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/1928227

 

Still behind for this year, but July's starting strong!

9. The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt: TBR since 2010
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7737200

10. A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly: TBR since 2008!
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/6598761

 

I will be nowhere near my 2015 goal of reading 24 TBR books this year. However, I really enjoy participating. What I did read this year has been on Mount TBR for 5 years or more.

11. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson--TBR since 2003!
12. Persuasion by Jane Austen--TBR since 2007!

 

Split into:
50 ABC TBRs
50 mixed TBRs (might be registered by someone else or might not)

I finally declared them on LibraryThing, so I might as well declare them here
https://www.librarything.com/---/forbookcrossersreduc

I failed miserable last year - a lousy FIFTEEN that weren't romances from others. The ABC TBRs is a huge mountain...and I'm determined to pick books off that mountain first.
