reading plans

I've decided to take on CB Jame's TBR Dare for 2011.

I'm going the whole way. Only reading books off my TBR pile until April. I'm actually pretty eager to see how far I can get. I might join a few other small challenges during the year, as long as the books are ones already on my shelves, so I won't be breaking the dare.

It will make me sad not to bring anything home from the library for a while, but I've also been feeling sad at not allowing myself go on book-buying binges (even the cheapest sale ones!) until my shelves have been lightened to make room. So if this dare helps me clear off some shelves, then I'll be very happy to finally go book hunting and fill them up again!

Good luck with the dare! It's a scary thought... but I think we can do it!

Best of luck! I wish I had the willpower to do that.

I'm in it all the way with you. With the exceptions of audios, which I only rent from the library, and book club picks. I have enough books on my shelves for about four years of this dare.

Good luck with your challenge. Just so you know, yes I will be hosting the animal one again in February.

I tried a similar TBR challenge this year only I wasn't supposed to buy any new books until I had read 20 that I had on my shelf. I made it a little over a month. Good luck on your TBR challenge!

Goodluck. I currently have my own personal dare of reading only mt tbr books. Getting there slowly!

I wish I could do this, but sadly I have other commitments (like book clubs) that will require library books, so I can't. Ah well.
