TBR Challenge

This is a challenge where you pick 12 books that have been sitting on your shelves (or your mental list) for quite some time -- preferrably 6+ months, but that's not *required* -- and you read one book each month, for a year.

The challenge begins every year on January 1st, and ends on December 31st.

* you may create an "Alternates List" of 12 books, which you would substitute in place of the original 12 given one didn't strike your fancy at the time you read it.

* you may overlap with other challenges

* you may NOT change your list, once you've made it public!

** Please visit the challenge blog for more details, and the group FAQs **

** There is also a Yahoo group for this challenge.
