(BOMBS) Books Off My Book Shelves 2012 Challenge

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

Join in the fight against unread books! Seek the enemy - EXPLODE those BOMBS! 2012 is the time to set the charges so that we can detonate the explosives that will safely help to clear the books that are gathering dust on our shelves.

Reducing the bookshelves that are overloaded with books that have not reached the top of the TBR pile is a goal that many readers have. However, newer and prettier books are always catching our eyes, and pushing the old books back farther on the shelves. This group is designed to help everyone see those books that have been hiding, and read them with the same joy as a new book arriving from the bookstore.

We will have a joint ticker and a monthly thread to encourage all who enlist for this fight against the unread book. We will see how our combined resolve to DEFUSE those BOMBS will bring peace to our shelves allowing for the immigration of future books.
