I have decided to join in the fun for the 2008 TBR Challenge. I've been thinking about it and simply can't resist. What's even more fun is selecting the books for this challenge. Will be updating my list soon.

Here's what you do:

  • Pick 12 books - one for each month of 2008 - that you've been wanting to read (that have been on your "To Be Read" list) for 6 months or longer, but haven't gotten around to.
  • OPTIONAL: Create a list of "Alternates" (books you could substitute for your challenge books, given that a particular one doesn't grab you at the time)
  • Then, starting January 1, 2008, read one of these books from your list each month, ending December 31, 2008.
