Off The Shelf Challenge

Hi! My name is Amber and I'm a book addict. There, I said it. Whew! 

I've decided to join this challenge because my TBR pile is pretty much overflowing and it never seems to get any smaller. The point of this challenge is to whittle down your TBR pile by reading books from your TBR pile. I'm going to be starting this one Jan. 1st as well as the 2011 Author Challenge so I get a good mix of old and new. I'll be counting the books I get for Christmas as part of my TBR shelf but everything I get after Jan. 1st is not going to count towards this challenge but rather, to the other one.

Since I'm super noncommittal, I'm not picking how many books I hope to read for the year so here's to doing the best I can!

  1. Yey! another fellow blogger who decided to join this amazing challenge! Good luck and looking forward to your list for the challenge.

  2. Looking forward to reading along side you in this challenge :)

  3. I like what you've written above (the comments section) about awards. Would you mind if I pinched that for my blog comments? Like you, I'm short of time and I know just how time consuming it becomes with all the awards people pass around from a previous blog I ran for 7 years.

    Does it work BTW or do you still get award messages?

  4. The problem I have with this challenge is that I keep adding more stuff to the TBR stack. I buy 99% of the books I read. I do like the idea of having a separate TBR stack for things you get after Jan. 1. I may have to try that. Happy reading and good luck at reducing your TBR stack.


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
