2011 TBR Challenge


Hosted by: Mizbooks
January 1 – December 31, 2011
As always, here are the rules:
  • ** Pick 12 books – one for each month of the year – that you’ve been wanting to read (that have been on your “To Be Read” list) for 6 months or longer, but haven’t gotten around to.
  • ** OPTIONAL: Create a list of 12 “Alternates” (books you could substitute for your challenge books, given that a particular one doesn’t grab you at the time)
  • By the end of the year you should’ve knocked 12 books off of your TBR list!

You can read additional rules on the challenge post.

I just finalized my list using books from last years challenge and a few others that I didn’t get around to. I also made my alternatives books I know I will be reading regardless but have the extra challenge of making sure those 12 are not my entire challenge. This year my goal is to read all 24!
