So, I need a way to reduce these lists/piles. Enter the challenges for 2020. Some of these challenges have been discussed in previous blog posts but some of them are new to this post. After I discuss the new ones, I am going to use the bottom of this post as way to track my progress on the challenges. This will be a consolidated list of TBRs and many will cross over to cover other challenges I am doing, but at least there will be one place where they are all recorded as TBR accomplishments.
The challenges that I am doing that address reducing TBR piles are:
Beat the Backlist and 2020TBR are both being tracked in separate posts as they have optional prompts to go with the basic clear your list challenge.
This challenge hosted at BookwyrmsHoard is a challenge from Jan 1- Dec 31st. It includes books you already own plus those on your list. The only requirement is they must be published before 2019 & already by on your list. She is offering prize opportunities if you review books and link them to her blog. Sign up here if you want to join me. Use #BacklistReader on any social media.
I am trying to read at least 24 books for this one as well but there may be more since they just need to be on the list vs ownership.
Mount TBR at My Readers Block is a traditional TBR challenge I discussed in a previous Blog Post "Set a goal & Track"
My goal is to scale Mount Blanc- 24 books
Status: 32/24 Read
Hosted at the Quiet Pond is a fun story based approach to the traditional pile reduction challenge. My post about this one with my star map that I have created can be found here in my blog post "Castor's Star Map #StartOnYourShelfathon" This challenge started Dec 13, 2019 so feel free to start whittling down that pile before the year ends.
