I so badly need to read my own books and the books that I have already been given for review and to stop adding to my existing stacks with new books that I had to have. So this yearly challenge for Kim @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer is just the kick I need to get a little control over my TBR.
If you need help with your own book piles, you should check out the graphic above. You don’t need to be a book blogger, just a reader with a book stack! And there will be prizes, a readathon (March 12th), a twitter party (March 16th) and lots more to keep us all motivated and flying though those dusty stacks.
I can read whatever I want, whenever I want but it has to be published before 1 March 2016 for this challenge.
I will review book ASAP within finishing as I don’t want to whittle down my TBR list but then pile up my reviews-to-be-written list.
I’m not making a list of books because that would take forever! Instead I’ll just pull books according to my mood. Trust me I’ve lots to pick from *nervous giggle* My biggest fear is that I’ll cause a book avalanche when I start digging though my stacks of unorganised books but who knows what fab book that might just remind to read.
I’ll update my progress on The Sunday Post which will hopefully keep me focused and stop me cheating with new books!
A little disclaimer!
Control as defined thefreedictionary.com is
1. to exercise restraint or direction over; dominate, regulate, or command. 2. to hold in check; curb: to control one’s emotions. 3. to test or verify (a scientific experiment) by a parallel experiment or other standard of comparison. 4. to prevent the flourishing or spread of: to control a forest fire.
I think I’m never going to have restraint over book buying, will never curb my bookish longings for all the new books. A quick look at my book room is the only experiment needed as to the extent of the problem! And I never really want to prevent my books from flourishing.
So this is just a temporary mini fix and next month, I’ll be happy to be set loose and grab all the books yet again. I’m a book beast and happy about that.
Talk to Trish : Are you taking part? If so let me know and I’ll come cheer you on.
