TBR Challenge 2017

I feel so inadequate when I look at other book blogs.

There are so many links.  And graphics.  And charts.  And gifs.  And little pictures celebrating how many challenges they’ve participated in.

Here at the Readers’ Corner…I’ve got lots of Simpsons stills.  Lots.

I feel like my posies are droopy and my tattered rags are about to get caught on the coffee table.

As longtime readers have probably guessed, I’ve just spent some time investigating more reading challenge possibilities for the blog.  And I think I’ve got a good one: The TBR Challenge!

It’s just what it says on the tin: I read as many books as I can from my To-Be-Read list–in my case, I’ll be going down my Goodreads To-Read list, which currently numbers 831 and dates back to 2012.

I figure this will be a lot easier than other challenges (all I have to do is go down a list of books I already want to read), and there’s a rewarding achievement at the end (I’ll have knocked some titles off my TBR list).

I just finished the first book on the list: The Man in the Picture: A Ghost Story by Susan Hill.  You will have to wait for Horror Month to hear about that one.

Next up: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

    1. Thanks for saying so, and for reading! 🙂 (it’s the Simpsons screencaps, isn’t it?)
