For BookCrossers: Reduce MTBR 2016 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.

This challenge is for all BookCrossers who would like to reduce MTBR, which refers to our mountain of to-be-read books! We've successfully run this challenge for the past two years and we're ready to attack MTBR again in 2016.

Here is how it works:
1. Start a thread with your name as part of the title.
2. Declare the goals related to reducing MTBR (specifically, books acquired before Jan. 1, 2016) that you wish to achieve in 2016.
3. Post progress reports throughout the year.

Some people like to list all the books on their TBR list or the ones they hope to finish in 2016. Some use tickers to show their progress graphically. Most of us counted only books registered by other people in the previous years' challenges. However, feel free to structure your challenge in any way you like, as long as it helps you to reduce your MTBR!
