2016 - Reduce MTBR - challenge

We're back for 2016!

We'll just be adding our reads to this thread. One post for each month, and then you can keep editing throughout the month. When we start a new month, you'll just hit 'reply', edit a bit in the subject line if needed etc. Just follow dove-i-libri's or my example. Go get 'em!

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

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!

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!

Most importantly- THE GOAL IS TO 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?

Then you can start setting your goals in this thread. When it's january, Dove-i-Libri or I will start the first thread.

~~~~~~~~ (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 * * * *

I didn't make it - thirty two! Worst year yet, still keeping at 50 as I like that number :)

Goal 120

I had the goal of 100 but since January was such a great reading month, I read an unusually large number of books, I adjusted it to 120.
Profile Image
I overshot my goal by 221% last year. I thought 150 was generous after making my previous year's goal of 125, but this year I read 331 TBRs. I think I must have been working a lot of night shifts & had mucho reading time.

Is this the 10th anniversary of this challenge? Or is it my 10th anniversary doing it? I don't know whether Doveilibri started it in 2006, or I first noticed it then.
Profile Image
I missed 30 by 60 odd pages in 2015 so this seems like a good target! Happy New Year everyone.

Yippee - I've made my target 4 months early :) Now that our daughter is nearly 4 I seem to have found more time to read this year. Will keep going... Though I've reduced my registered ABC TBRs to 3 from 20+ my bookshelves (and floor) are still groaning with plenty of unregistered books.

My goal is also 24! Good luck and Happy New Year!
Profile Image
Last year's goal was 50 and I only read 31, so 42 is more than that and 42 is the meaning of life, so that's my goal! I saw the comments about TabbyCatOwner's challenge on last year's thread, and there's no reason not to post on both challenges. This one allows cheating for those of us who don't have a grip on time (reality?) and think "I got this book recently", only to discover you've had it 2 years already. And for those who have had some books so long, the original person who registered it has long forgotten it. Plus, many of my remaining 'early' books were either registered by me or one of a handful of Dutch BCers. I like to spread the joy by reading and journalling books that came from different people, so I prefer the freedom of this challenge. This one is (almost) completely without guilt because I can choose something I picked up at last year's big meeting and still meet the criteria for posting here. See, there is method in my madness!
Profile Image
50 books less in here would really free up some shelf space :)
Profile Image
I didn't meet my goal of 50 TBRs last year (I got to 41), but I'm keeping the same goal this year because I think I can meet it.

I will also set the goal I've had in the past two years, to read the 12 oldest BC books on my shelf. Actually, this year I'd like to read 12 from a long series another BC kindly gave to me years ago, and the oldest 12 that aren't part of that series.

... I have a lot of course work to do online for continuing education. Usually that's a snap, but this year I have two very involved and slightly difficult courses.

Doesn't look like I'll make even this little goal I had set this year.

But as Yogi Berra used to say ... It ain't over til it's over.

I'm going to aim for 50 books from my bookcrossing shelves registered in 2015 or earlier no matter whom they have been registered by. I have a tendency to read the books I get from others and not the ones I have registered, so I would like to attempt to get that stack whittled down as well.

hopefully this year I get closer to the goal. I was 8 books shy of 50 last year because I kept getting sidetracked by newer books,

My goal was to read 50 books from my bookcrossing TBR. The last 8 books I read for this year were all books acquired in 2016. Which would make me hit my goal of 50 books.

However those 8 books were all new additions to the TBR pile, so I ended up with 41 or 42 books read.
