2012 Mount TBR & Off the Shelf Reading Challenges


What: 2012 Mount TBR Reading Challenge
When: 1 January – 31 December 2012
Who: Bev (My Reader’s Block)
Rules: Choose a “mountain”.  Only books owned prior to 1 January 2012 count.  No library books, advanced reader copies (ARCs), or re-reads allowed.  Audiobooks count, as long as they are owned by the individual and meet the same requirements listed above. Reviews not required.  To sign up, visit Bev.

Since first seeing this challenge listed, I’ve changed my mind several times.  I was going to go with a higher “mountain”, but I had to remind myself that I still want to read newly published, or newly acquired, books as well.  I have some audiobooks — plus, Audible gifted me $10 for my 1 year anniversary, so I’ll be adding to that stash here shortly.  The only problem is that the majority of those are books I’ve read and I had a desire to hear them narrated.  Taking all that in consideration, I’ve decided that I would —

Climb Mt. Ararat: Read 40 books.

I haven’t posted my 2012 pages, but I will track this one like I’ve tracked all the others.

What: 2012 Off the Shelf Challenge
When: 1 January – 31 December 2012
Who: Dutchie (Bookish Ardour)
Rules: Read books that you own, but haven’t gotten around to reading, for whatever reason. Only books you own prior to 1 January 2012 count toward the challenge. Go here for more details and sign up.

Level: Making A Dint — 30 books

I’ve decided to do this one again, since I did so well with this year’s challenge.  Obviously, the challenges will over-lap.  I’m not sure if I’m going to set any self-imposed limits this time — I had a cut-off date of July 2010 for this year’s challenge (meaning the book had to be in my possession before I moved to Kentucky).

Like this year’s challenge, I will be incorporating my personal reading challenge, By the Dozen.  Twenty-four of the thirty-six books required for that challenge will be books I’ve had for some time (the other 12 are 2012 books).  I planned it with the hopes that this challenge would be hosted again..

I will track this challenge concurrent with the Mount TBR Challenge.
