#ShelfLove Challenge 2016
We’re co-hosting the #ShelfLove challenge again this year so join us and read more of the books you already bought!
December 2016/January 2017: End of the Year Check in Post. Look back at your June and January posts and let us know how you did this year. Share an updated picture or list of your TBR pile. Would you do the challenge again in 2017?
Julie’s Challenge Update:
In case you’re wondering, I totally bombed this challenge. I’ve read like 11 books? And my goal was 21-30. So… fail. But hey, that’s 11 books off my TBR, and that counts for something.
Okay, well maybe totally bombed isn’t the right word. I have gotten excellent at not buying books. I have bought very few books. Since I have little time to read, I have stopped spending money on things that will collect dust, virtual or physical. So that’s a win.
Would I do it again in 2017? Sure, why not! Maybe I’ll do better. Or maybe not, but still, fun times, right?
Lynn’s Challenge Update:
I bombed on this challenge as well, with 16 books read from my goal of 21-30. I keep thinking to myself, how hard can it be to read books that I already own? Turns out, very difficult. All the shiny new books keep grabbing my attention. Between book club and review books, I’m struggling to keep up.
I agree with Julie on the challenge encouraging me to not buy as many books. I’m doing much better with that portion of the challenge. I have cut down on buying considerably. Especially all the free or $0.99 books. That’s a big step. If I’m not about to read it, I tend to not buy it.
I’m for continuing the Shelf Love Challenge. I like the feeling when I can add a book to my completed shelf love shelf. And once I put my library cards in the freezer, maybe I’ll actually succeed.
