complete!

I did it! I finished the TBR Double Dare. Well, kind of. In the past three months, I've read seventeen books, all off my TBR shelf here at home. I was sorely tempted a few times with books I saw on display at the library, but managed to restrain myself (jotting down their titles for later). I did post quite a number of times about board books which were from the library, but as I got those for the baby and not my own reading, I didn't think they counted. A few times though, I forgot and read a book my older daughter had brought home from the school library- four Junie B. Jones books. So... I guess those broke my challenge? I'm not sure now if I can consider myself having stuck to this or not.

I say you were true to the TBR Double Dare in spirit, and that is what counts. ;-) 17 books is very good. Everyone seems to have done much better with it this year than I did.

Sounds to me like you did great! Does this mean you get to go on a book buying binge now? :)

Ha, ha- no, no buying binges. I still have an entire bookcase full of TBRs! I didn't even clear one shelf off- just got it so it's not cluttered with books double-stacked. And I have a dozen new books that I got on swap during the dare, so itching to get to those!

Well done Jeane, 17 is a good number. I enjoyed this challenge too and hope to keep emptying my TBR pile as long as I can.
