2013 TBR PILE Reading Challenge


One of the greatest things about this time of year? All the reading challenges that start popping up for next year! I entered in three so far, not including this one and thought to leave it at that. But when I ran across this one I couldn't resist! According to Goodreads I've 60 books on my shelves that I still have to read. And since I just keep buying books this pile doesn't get any lower! So I'm joining this challenge to read all the books that have been waiting on me!

Six bloggers are hosting this Reading Challenge. Every month on the 20th there will be a wrap up post on one of the six blogs. 

Evie @ Bookish
Rachel @ Fiktshun
Bonnie @ Words At Home

There are five levels: 

    1-10 - A Firm Handshake
    11-20 - A Friendly Hug
    21-30 - A Sweet Kiss
    31-40 - Love At First Sight
    41-50 - Married With Children

I'm aiming for A Sweet Kiss. What I learned from participating in my first challenge is that I shouldn't be too enthusiastic. I went through my TBR pile and there are 30 books I really want to read next year:
