This challenge is the nudge I’ve been needing. I don’t know about you guys, but I tend to gather alot of books that I plan to read, but never quite get round too. It’s hard enough keeping up with all the amazing books that are released yearly, without going back trying to catch up too! But that is exactly the plan!
Over the next year, alongside my Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge, I’m gunna give this TBR pile challenge a go too. I’m aiming to be on the married with children level (thats 41-50 books, not anything else!). You can find my list for this challenge here. I’ll pobably add to this list as I go as oppose to trying to add everything to it now. Mostly because I’m lazy XD
I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I’m always behind, forever playing the catch-up game. Is it really all that bad if you discover a book long after it’s release? If you pick and choose from different years, mixing and matching old with new? I don’t think so. In fact, I prefer being a little behind I think. Gives it time for the hype to die down and the mist to clear, so you can actually see if it’s worth reading or not. For me at least, staying behind means I don’t feel like I have to buy and read this book immediately just because it’s the latest thing. Makes for much more enjoyable reading!
This doesnt mean to say that we’ll forget all about this years books, because hey, just like every other book nerd, there are loads of books that are being released this year that I’m just dying to read! Regardless, this year is looking better by the minute and it seems to me like I’ll be reading more than I have in a very very long time. I can’t wait!
