Read Your Own Book Challenge

Yes, another challenge and defnitely the last one I'll be joining - yeah right! LOL Anyway, this one will also help with my TBR mountain. If you'd like to join, click the button above. Here's the details...

The rules for this challenge are very simple…

* set a goal for how many of your OWN books you’d like to read in 2009

* read from your own collection between January 1st and December 31st, 2009

And, that’s basically it! You don’t have to create a list beforehand (’cause we all know that our reading preferences change as the year progresses), and you can even read books that come into your possession (that will be yours to keep) during the year!

Some other helpful hints…

- you CAN overlap with other challenges

- eBooks and Audiobooks count AS LONG AS they are from your own collection

My goal is going to be 20 books, although I can do more...I don't want to stress out about this. I'll be posting as I go along...

  1. You are very ambitious, aren't you? ;-) I wish you luck with this challenge, Yvonne. Since I'm doing the TBR Challenge, I figured this one would just be overkill. :-)

  2. I signed up for this one too. It was too hard to pass up!
