TBR…self challenge 11/12/10 – 11/12/11

Due to the newfound joys of bookmooch.com, I am finding that my TBR (To Be Read) pile is growing in somewhat epic proportions. This is not in and of itself an issue, however since there are so many other books that I also want  to read, or will come across and choose to read throughout the coming year, I thought I would make myself a pledge to make my way through a significant portion of my TBR pile.

So, I am pledging to read 40 of my TBR pile, starting from the 11/12/10 running for a year until 11/12/11. So far I have managed to read four which is what prompted me into making this more public announcement that I would work through more of reading pile. I figured if I could make it through four straight off the bat then…

Some of them cross over into my GLBT challenge for this year, the four I intially stated in my challenge post for a start.

So then, the list… allowing for 5 substituions at any given date… based on mood I suspect.

About Nerdsbian

I am a nerd for ALL seasons. Ravenclaw...natch. I am a genderqueer Librarian who unsurprisingly likes reading...a lot. But I also love being outside too...sometimes even reading at the same time. Also animals, any and all of them. Never yet met one that didn't get on with me and vice versa. I do a couple of different voluntary jobs (animal charity related), I am a Brownie Leader and have recently completed my MA.
