Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2017

mounttbr

This is a challenge to read the books you already own in order to reduce that teetering, to falling over ‘to be read’ pile. I have amassed a large pile of classics that I hope to get through this year…um, so I can buy more 🙂

Hosted by Bev of My Reader’s Block, she asks that you choose a level to start, but you can upgrade as you surpass that level’s maximum.

Pike’s Peak: Read 12 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Blanc: Read 24 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Vancouver: Read 36 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Ararat: Read 48 books from your TBR piles/s
Mt. Kilimanjaro: Read 60 books from your TBR pile/s
El Toro: Read 75 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Everest: Read 100 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Olympus (Mars): Read 150+ books from your TBR pile/s

I am going to choose Mount Blanc, but I will surprised if I don’t step up to at least the next one!
