For a little extra motivation to dust off some of those books I've always promised myself I would read, I've decided to jump into the 2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge hosted by Bookish. (Thanks for the heads up from one of my fellow readers here on BookLikes who stumbled upon this challenge and posted it to her blog.)
Lord knows, I've got a huge backlog of books that I've collected over the years, picking them up because I liked the blurb, or it was from an author I liked, or simply because I thought the cover was interesting. Then for one reason or another, I tucked them away into a pile or packed them into a box, telling myself I would get to them eventually. Well, today's the day. This year is the year. "Gather unto me, all you Long Lost Books! Cradle yourselves in my arms where you may find solace!"
Seriously though, anyone can join up, and everyone should. Just click the big button at the top of this post to follow the link to Bookish. Read the rules and sign up!
I'm really pushing myself this year to read at least 50 books. I just think I would have a great year if I got to read so much. So how about it? Does this sound like the push you need to clear off that dusty shelf? Do you think you could do it? Let's do it together!
