2016 Reading Challenges Update

by Colleen Morrow in


Well, here it is, 4 months into the year.  How's that ol' TBR you ask?  Well...  It's both good and bad.

For the good - I did REALLY well with the TBR Triple Dog Dare and managed to read only what was on my stack before the year started.  I made a great dent in the pile, reading over a dozen books from it.  That was pretty great.  In April, I've mostly read things that I've acquired since the start of the year or that caught my eye in the first three months of the year.  And I acquired more than I would have liked...

Some were purchases, some were gifts, some were from a Reddit gifts exchange.  And the result is that I have the same number of books on the TBR today that I did on Jan 1.  So it's time to buckle down again.

Estella's Revenge (the hostess of the #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks challenge) is doing a #SmashYourStack challenge for May and I'm hopping on board in hopes that I can make half of my reading in May from my pre-2016 shelf.  

To that end, I'm going to try to get as much reading done as I possibly can during Bout of Books. This will be my first time taking part - and essentially, you just push yourself to read more than you usually do over the course of a week.
