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!



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!

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

* * * 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 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

TOO MUCH FACEBOOK. I think I might be taking a Facebook vacation.


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 unregistered .

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.


1. The House of All Sorts by Emily Carr (TBR since 2015)
2. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11772761/ Suite Franҫaise by Irene Nemirovsky (TBR since 2013)
3. The Story Grid by Shawn Coyne (TBR since 2017)


4. The Complete Collected Poems of Maya Angelou (TBR since 2014)
5. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8552662 Alex and Me by Irene Pepperberg (TBR since 2012)


6. A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler (TBR since 2017)


7. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11722316/ The Apothecary Rose by Candace Robb (TBR since 2016)


8. The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel (TBR since 2017)
9. http://bookcrossing.com/---/14144096 Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen (TBR since 2017)


10. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8437003 Fasting, Feasting by Anita Desai (TBR since 2012)


With struggling to give preference to the 283 ABC TBRs lurking in the house as the year gets started


Managed 8 of mine and 6 from others this month


a bit of a slow go so far

8 of mine & 2 ABC TBRs....not the right proportion. Will try to straighten that up


still slanted to mine: 3 vs 2


14 books (out of 16) with the split of 9 of mine and 7 ABC TBRs. Still slacking in moving those ABC ones along by a smidge.

Total YTD: 55 so 36% done


oops - forgot to keep track

So end of august totals here:
YTD: 104 so far
of that # 69 were registered by me and 35 by others
and to further split 24 from others were non-romance, but only 14 of mine were non-romances (i.e. the ones that usually take longer to read!)


This entry will serve to keep track of my monthly goals, but I will make separate posts for each month.



I did this in 2010 and 2011 and after a small break it's time to enter again :)
Thanks for the challenge Dove-i-libri! My goal is 100, a little less than in 2011.

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.

I haven't tried this challenge before, but have a huge mountain TBR, so here goes. This year I'm also going to try and read more of my oldest TBR books.


1. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13611455 The Twins. TBR since December 2017 - Completed 5 January 2018.

2. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14760008 The Dry. TBR since December 2017 - Completed 9 January 2018.

11. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13844966 Force of Nature. TBR since December 2017. Completed 31 January 2018


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!


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.

ikky 3 yrs ago
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:

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+


#5 Just as Well I'm leaving
#6 L'auberge - Stagg
#7 Paper Moon - Camilleri
#8 I Let You Go

Due to arthritis, I haven't been able to read any (paper) books during past 2 + months. Luckily they've got also eaudiobooks in Finnish libraries. Anyway, I've read 51/65 books in this year's challenge http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9196040
Better luck next year, I hope.
Thanks for this challenge and Happy new year to all!


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.

January: 2 of 25
February: 6 of 25
March: 9 of 25
April: 10 of 25
May: 10 of 25
June: 11 of 25


1. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire
TBR since July 2011
2. The Dry by Jane Harper
Ring joined in July 2017


Now at 3/36, having met my monthly goal of 3. Onward!

1. In the Miso Soup (TBR since Nov ’17)
2. Sin in the Second City (TBR since Oct ’16)
3. The Centaur (TBR since Feb ’09)
