TBR Challenge

Pick 12 books you especially want to read, perhaps ones that have been sitting on your shelves (or your mental list) for quite some time, and aim to read one book each month for a year. The challenge begins every year on January 1st and ends on December 31st.

* You can also add an "Alternates List" of 12 books you read on the side, or substitute for one of your primary 12 if one of those doesn't strike your fancy when you try it.

*You can overlap with other challenges if you like, but it's considered bad form if you change your list once you've made it public!

** MizB was our group's creator; you can visit her blog entry about this challenge from 2014, noting that we've loosened the rules quite a bit to suit ourselves.
