TBR Challenge 2010 - My First Challenge Ever!

Pin It

So I have decided to participate in my first ever book reading challenge, and I am super excited!!!  The challenge I have accepted is the 2010 TBR (To Be Read) Challenge set up by MizB (though, I heard about the challenge over on Babbette's Book Blog).

Here are the Rules:

  • Make a list of books that have been sitting on your TBR shelf for 6 months or longer.
  • Publish the list on your blog before January 1st, 2010.
  • Audio and E-books are allowed.
  • Re-reads are not allowed.
  • Create a Alternate List (a list of other titles) just in case something on your TBR list doesn't tickle your fancy at the time.
  • Read them all before the last day of 2010.
  • You can check out the Yahoo group that MizB has set up for this challenge if you'd like.
  • You can overlap this Challenge with any other you are doing this year!
  • Happy Reading!
