2013 TBR Challenge hosted by Roofbeam Reader

As I was looking at my bookshelves in various locations around my house, I kept thinking about the TBR Pile Challenges that I had seen in the past. I have never participated before but I am thinking it's about time! I need some motivation to get some of these older books read, ones that I was dying to read when I got them but are now just sitting on the shelf, staring back at me.

The purpose of this challenge is to read 12 books that have been sitting on the shelf for over a year. So all books that qualify must be have been published before 2012. The books have to be selected before the challenge starts - 12 books plus 2 alternatives, just in case.

This challenge is organized by Roof Beam Reader. Click here to read more about it and to sign up yourself!

I will post an update to this list once a month so we can see how I am doing ~ it will make me accountable. *yikes!* I will also link my reviews on this page as I get the books read.

Wish me luck!

Whoops! I see now that I have missed the deadline for signing up for this challenge but since I made the mental decision to commit to this, I am just going to go ahead and follow thru with it anyway, on my own.

I need to get these books read!
