The TBR 100 Book Countdown Challenge (519-510)


My tbr has managed to sneak up over 600 books again and action must be taken!!! So I am setting myself a pretty tough challenge-to get that tbr from 612 as it stands today, down to 500 books by December 31st. Yes it is an impossible sounding task but not everything on the tbr is full length reading-there are short stories, novellas and novels to be devoured! Even if I don't get to the target, I'll be pleased if I get close. It would be the first time in 5 years that my tbr was 500 or less! My updates on my progress won't be weekly, just whenever I have something to report! Anyone who wants to try and reduce their tbr is welcome to post on my update posts about their progress!

FYI: A few people have asked why the number of books I've reduced the pile by in the post title does not match the number of books I mention in the actual blog post. Simple really, I'm still adding new books to the tbr each week, and a few are rereads.

*SCREAMS* I'm only 10 books away from my target!!! I had a good week of reading and motored through some books that have been sitting on my bookshelves for a year or two. So despite buying a few new books, my total has dropped nicely this week! I think another two weeks maximum will ensure my target is reached. Pretty exciting stuff...

  1. Yay good for you, I am trying to ignore the books on my TBR, I refuse to count them, if I count them I think I will be shocked at how many there are!

    Enjoy lots of reading this week!

    1. That's how my tbr panic began-counting them does give you that total you can't ignore!
