Backlist Reader Challenge 2017 Sign Up

The Backlist Reader Challenge

My lovely friend Lark @ The Bookwyrm’s Hoard is hosting a challenge next year, and I’m joining in.

The Rules

The rules are pretty simple. Only (1) and (2) are mandatory.

(1) To count for the challenge, books have to be published before 2016 AND be on your TBR list or pile. In other words, you don’t have to own it. If it’s been on your list to read, and it’s older than 2016, it counts.

(2) Create a goals or sign-up post on your blog or wherever you post your reviews. You can set your own goal, and you can list the books you want to read, or leave it up to your mood at the time — as long as they’re on your TBR list.

(3) Review the books you read, and post the links on the review linky.  Actually, you can do the challenge without writing reviews, but the review links are your entries for the year-end giveaway (a $10 gift certificate.)  Reviews don’t have to be long, just a few sentences is fine. You can post them on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you don’t have a blog.

(4) On or after the end of the year, post a wrap-up post to let us know how you did!

I definitely want to read 12 books for this challenge (1 per month), but I’m not exactly sure what! I had originally posted a list, but I quickly changed my mind and edited this post to remove it. 🙈

Instead, I’ll update this post with the books I’ve read, as I go along. Okay? Okay.
