2012 Read Your Own Books Reading Challenge

2012 Read Your Own Books Reading Challenge.

I have been trying very hard to avoid joining too many reading challenges this year BUT…  I have just realised that we will be moving house before the end of this year (*fingers crossed* the house will be built!) so I’m going to have to read all those UN-read books physically sitting on my shelf with the hope of not having to pack & cart them off to the new house.

So I’ll be participating in this challenge on Level 4 (yes, I have 21+ TBR books collecting dust).  However, I’m going to have to aim to finish by September 2012 on the optimistic view that we will be moving house around that time!!
