2019 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 2019. 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.

Thank you so much! I've been hoping/waiting for this thread to appear. Goal post (haha, "goal post"!) coming right up! :D

 

I see what you did there!

 

My main goal is buying ZERO books this year and mainly focusing on finishing my half-read books and reducing my huge Mt TBR. Since the Goodreads challenge always asks for numbers, I've decided to set my goal as 50 books from the TBR shelf (so I have a little space for sneaking in the occasional library book or similar).

I just missed last year’s goal of 75 so will try again with focus on the 85 TBRs registered by other Bookcrossers.

I don’t tend to register my own books until I’ve read them and found another Bookcrosser to send them to through wish lists otherwise they go to family or the charity shop. So I’ll be on the honour system with those!

Happy New Year and happy reading!

Okay, I haven't done as well at this as I thought I would.
I've picked up a few different books from Mt. TBR, started them, and put them down again. Most of my TBR books have never been registered, so you 'll just have to take my word for it that I've had them forever. ;-)
I also keep buying new books. Oops!

Hello, Dove-i-Libri and the other Reduce MTBR challengers. Of course, I intended to join in January, but I seem to be a little later than even I usually am. Let's see how far I've got so far and whether I'll reach my target by the end of the year...

 

1. Wees onzichtbaar - Murat Isik (NL). TBR since Oct. 2018. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15036274
2. The Buddha in the Attic - Julie Otsuka (USA/Japan). TBR since Nov. 2018. Bookring. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15104349
3. Banco: the Further Adventures of Papillon - Henri Charrière (Venezuela). TBR since 2008. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/6066136

Also read: Winter by Ali Smith, for book club. I'm really enjoying her topical 4 seasons books. She is writing one per season, finishing in Summer (2019). I bet she was rubbing her hands in glee when she realised that Britain was going to exit the EU in March, then despaired as Brexit failed to get agreed upon. Long may it remain so.

P.S. I've tried 3 times to get this below February, but I've given up!
