I am going to give your Challenge a try this year, Dove-i-libri, as the "short" of my Bookcrossing goal for 2018 is to READ and RELEASE some of the FABulous Books (I will need to keep it simple and try for 12) I have received from other BCers...the "long" of it is here. ; ) https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9049969

WELCOME TO 2018! Join us as we REDUCE THOSE TBR MOUNTAINS!

2018 Reduce Mount TBR Challenge

Post your goal under this thread, and then post your completed reads under that goal! 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 my example.

Go get 'em! AND ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... WE'RE ... OFF!

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

Quick Review (There will not be a quiz!)

Any book counts, as long as you INTENDED to read it before January 2018. 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 before January 1, bookrays & books from bookboxes you signed up for before January 1, even trades you arranged prior to the challenge beginning. No new purchases, trades, etc AFTER January 1 should be counted. That would be books ADDED to your pile. We want to REDUCE the piles we have on hand NOW! It would be fun if you could find your OLDEST TBRs and tried to focus on those. I try to do that sometimes.

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.

~~~~~~~~ (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!

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

I did this once or twice some years ago and then took a break, but my shelves are encouraging me to try again ;)

My goal is to reduce my Mount TBR by 120 books, including the 12 oldest registered by others and another 12 oldest registered by me.

I have 50 ish books ABC TBRs so I’ll focus on them this year. I’ll be on the honour system again with my unregistered books ☺I don’t tend to register my own books until I’ve read them and can find a home to RABCK them otherwise they go to the British Heart Foundation shop.

If listed pre-2009 then the book has my maiden name initials in it. If pre-2005 then it’s moved house at least twice! If 2017 then I know I've had it longer than this year - I'm just not sure how long :)

Happy New Year everyone!

Life events in the past year or so have seriously hindered my reading and Bookcrossing activities, so I didn't complete this challenge in 2017. But a new year is starting and life is looking up, so here I go! My goal is to read 50 TBRs, including the 12 oldest books on my shelf registered by others.

I'm going to aim to read at least 75 books with the focus being books from my BXing TBR pile. This includes books registered by myself as well as ABC books from 2017 or earlier. I will also add books from my audio and ebook TBR libraries that are from before Jan 1, 2018.

Some of the books registered by me may be registered in 2018, but will have been purchased earlier as I am weeding out some shelves this year too hopefully.

In 2017, I only finished a total of 18 books, many of which were new because I read them for a book club. However, I have 15 books half-read, so that should help me on my way. So I'll go for 18 for 2018. Happy New Year, Dove-i-Libri. I'll try to remember to post this year!
Profile Image
I didn't come close to my goal in 2017, but I love this challenge. Also, I love the beginning-of-year feeling, when everything qualifies! I, too, want to read some of my oldest and those from other BCers I've had the longest. However, in 2017 I eliminated pressure on myself by marking all my books something other than TBR.

25 in a year

Hello, I never tried this challenge before but it is what I need. I decided last year to reduce the number of TBR and did quite a good job, but I have a lot of leftovers. Most of them are nor registered, some are pdf on my phone, some will be in Italian or Spanish, some will be registered and released. I think 25 is feasible.

At the moment reading:
Vanity fair by Thackeray(e-book)
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
Golden bats and pink Pigeons oby Durrel http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13955108

Having just missed my target last year, I am going for a smaller number of books, but also trying to read some of the bricks that I have on my shelf - so out of the 45, at least 10 will be 500+ pages. My visual guide is that I want to decrease the number of book shelves that are double stacked.
I kicked off with one for my reading group, a whopping 1000+ pages:
#1 Gone with the wind -Margaret Mitchell
#2 Death of an Owl - Paul Torday with Piers Torday
#3 Cranford -Elizabeth Gaskell
#4 A God in Ruins -Atkinson 500+
Profile Image
#5 Just as Well I'm leaving
#6 L'auberge - Stagg
#7 Paper Moon - Camilleri
#8 I Let You Go
#9 Mr Dixon Disappears - Sansome

I'll base this off my goodreads TBR shelf, which conveniently also gives me a date when it was added to the pile.
I mostly register book when I read them so my TBR here isn't too high (yet).

My goal is 25 books added to the pile before 2018 or booksrings I joined before 2018.

So far I've finished 2/25
