Challenge Yourself...Isalys

**List will be updated regularly**

In the spirit of challenging ourselves to read more, I have decided to jump aboard the "Challenge Yourself" bandwagon.

I have far too many books sitting on my shelf at home just waiting to be read. The reason for that is that while I read a lot for the blog (blog tours/reviews, etc) and read many of my own books, I continue buying books at a greater rate than I can read them.

Thus, my Billy Bookshelf is overflowing with my TBR books!

Below is a list of the books that are actually on my shelf waiting for me and I fully intend to make a dent in this list by year's end:

  1. One day I'll take a picture of my bookshelves..half of which are tbr books. I was trying for a long time to read only what I had...then I started buying again and I can't stop. My TBR pile is the size of a large mountain!!

  2. I have way too many books unread. My problem is that I get so many books from the library that I focus on finishing those before their due dates and neglect the ones I own.

  3. This year, I organised my reading list to be around 22 books. Sounds reasonable enough, right? Well, each time I'd get into a book a few more would show up in the mail or I'd meet up with some other Bookcrossers and we'd swap books... so I've been adding books onto the reading list; making it grow to over 35. Great! But don't worry, I've read 8 books this year so far and I'm proud of myself for getting that far. :D

    I'll just keep on plodding along and see how many get read this year... and then try to beat it next year. :D

  4. I may jump on this bandwagon too. I just need to organize things. I'll let you know if I do and when I put up a post. (I'll credit you guys for the brilliant idea!)

  5. I continuously buy books faster than I can read them. I'm somewhat of a book hoarder. I know I'm going to read them eventually, but if I want a book, I refuse to wait til later - even if there's no way I can get to it until later. How sad.

    I want to join in on this challenge. I need to get working on my TBR list until it's more manageable (also so it stops mocking me from the shelves).


  6. I don't buy books because I have no money, unless I really love them... Vampire Academy Series and the Night Huntress Series. I am a dedicated lover of the Library.

    Good Luck on that huge pile of books you have!

  7. Read the BRIDE and skip the rest (LOL)


  8. Good luck to everyone!! Let us see who gets to 50 books first!! Happy reading everyone!!!!
