Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2017

After 6 years of book blogging and heavy participating in reading challenges, I plan to simplify things in 2017 and participate in very few reading challenges.

To reduce the number of books that have been for too long collecting dust on my shelves or clogging my Kindle and Nook, I will try to climb up a high mountain this year, and I chose Mt. Ararat, that is, 48 books from my TBR.

I don’t know yet exactly which books I will read, but they will be from this list.
Plus from religious titles, I have a whole bunch of them on my shelves as well, but I’m not going to count them for the challenge, as I plan to keep those; whereas all the following titles, I plan to give away once they are read and reviewed.

titles in bold: reading now or starting very soon
written in orange: read
written in blue with link: read and reviewed

  1. I’m only doing Mt.TBR in 2017. There is just too much clogging up these tech toys. Of course, I’m also doing my usual GoodReads challenge

  3. You’re so organized, Emma! I thought of listing my prospective books – and maybe I will, this can be gentle nudge towards making the list. Slave driver Guy might give me a hard shove and cinch the matter. I haven’t made a blog post yet, but have made a thread at Goodreads. I’m using my “Want to Read” shelf there as the basis. When I was looking over it to decide my level, I noticed a lot of books I use for reference, letters, biographies, etc which, like you, I will be keeping, so I won’t count them. That would lessen the list.


    • When I feel overwhelmed by something (TBR or other), I make lists, to prioritize and handle things day by day. I knew I had so many books on my shelves, I needed to see clearly what to read or get rid of. Hence the list. On Goodreads, you can also create a special shelf for reference
