Many people are starting to post the reading challenges that they will partake in for the year 2012. I have a couple in mind, but the main one I intend on doing is this:
READ BOOKS THAT ARE ON MY SHELF!
With GoodReads and their fabulous BookSwap (which, sadly, is no longer in existence), I ended up collecting several books that I haven't even had the chance to read! We purchased an additional bookcase, and half of it is filled with books that I 'swapped' but haven't read! Plus, I found the joy of Net Galley and receiving ARCs for a review! I went way overboard with that as well, and have about 15 books I still have to read and review!
So, My 2012 Reading Challenge is to NOT buy a book in 2012 (unless I really REALLY need it!) The public library and my own personal library will be my friend in 2012! (And any ebook that is $2.99 or less!)
I will be doing the League Reading Challenge, as I have wanted to read several of these books anyway, and I have said that one of my 101 things to do is to read 10 literary classics (#26). Plus, it looks like I will be doing the TBR Pile Challenge... since this will be my goal!
Will-power, don't fail me now! Must R e s i s t buying more books! My husband has been very patient with me, stacking books everywhere!
Then, I will have to have on-site giveaways when I am done reading them... or host my own 'bookswap' to get these books to new owners who will love them and read them and pass them on!
