Clear Off Your Shelves Challenge
16 October, 2009
It’s halfway through October and I think I’ve more than fulfilled myself for Carl’s R.I.P. IV Challenge this year, although I’m in the middle of reading Natsuo Kirino’s Grotesque which will be my final offering for this particular challenge.
But look what I’ve found? Another challenge which will also help clear my TBR shelf! Yes, something fun and also très useful. The Clear Off Your Shelves Challenge hosted by Swapna at S.Krishna’s Books is ideal for serial book buying hoarders like meself. The challenge runs from 1st October to 30th November 2009 and you are required to state the percentage of books you hope to read which will be from your TBR pile. Review books will have to have gathered dust for 6 months, but as I’m still relatively new to blogging with no review books, I get to pick whatever I like.
Next month’s going to be a toughie as I’ll be participating in Nanowrimo, but I’ll still be trying to read books in between frenzied bouts of writing. So I’m aiming for a good 30%. So 1 in 3 books should be off my shelf. I haven’t decided what books I’ll read yet, so that’ll come up in my review and wrap up.
This challenge is a timely find as I’ve been reading many great reviews of Susan Hill’s newest tome Howard’s End is on the Landing and have been contemplating doing the same with my books.
