If you’ve been following me for some time now, you’ll know about my little read-a-thon that I created called the “Dusting off the Shelf” read-a-thon. Well, turns out I’m not a very good read-a-thon participant, let alone host. But everyone that participated liked the idea and wanted me to do it again…so here I am, kind of doing it again but a different format. I think I’ll have better luck with a yearly challenge!
This challenge is for all of you readers out there who buy books and they end up sitting on your shelves (or eReaders) for months, maybe even years without getting read. This challenge is to get you reading some older titles that have been sitting there on your shelf collecting dust. I know I have tons and tons of books that are doing just that, and I really want to get reading them. I’m seriously missing out on some wonderful stories, I know that for sure.
Note: I’ve looked at a lot of other bloggers challenge announcement posts to get a feel for the rules and guidelines that are normal as this is my first time. If anything looks similar to your challenge, I didn’t mean to copy it on purpose.
- The challenge will run from Jan 1, 2015 – Dec 31, 2015.
- Anyone is welcome to join. You do not need to be a blogger, just post your reviews and come back every month to link them up.
- Any book is acceptable, as long as you’ve owned it and have been meaning to read it for a long time.
- You can set any goal that you want for each month or the year. Whatever you think is attainable for you personally!
- At the beginning of each month I will post a roundup post for you to add your reviews.
- If you forget to link up one month it’s not a problem just add your reviews next month.

Sorry that this is going up a little late when it comes to challenge sign-ups. To be honest, I just came up with the idea earlier this week and only just now had time to write a post about it. Christmas break is here for me now, which means you’ll be hearing from me a lot more these next two weeks. I can’t wait to see what the holidays and the new year brings reading wise. I also hope you’ll sign up for this challenge!
