2011: Off the Shelf Challenge

While it is still 2010, people are gearing up for 2011 challenges. They’re thinking, planning, and getting the word out. One of the challenges I’m looking forward to participating in is the Off the Shelf Challenge hosted by Dutchie.

This challenge is to read those books you own copies of, but have never got around to reading. If you don’t have many that you own, but have a massive TBR shelf you’re welcome to read those ones as long as you don’t add new ones.

The challenge runs fron January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. There are seven levels to sign up for.

  1. Tempted–  Choose 5 books to read
  2. Trying – Choose 15 books to read
  3. Making A Dint – Choose 30 books to read
  4. On A Roll – Choose 50 books to read
  5. Flying Off – Choose 75 books to read

For extra hard challenges

  1. Hoarder – Choose 76-125 books to read
  2. Buried – Choose 126-200 books to read

I’m signed up for the On A Roll level, but when it comes to actually reading I’m going to be shooting for the Buried level. I’ve certainly got enough books to fuel such a challenge.

My Progress:

  1. Third Degree by Greg Iles
  2. McKettricks of Texas: Garrett by Linda Lael Miller

    I’m signing up for the 50 book challenge also. I’ll be reading more, but those others will probably be from tours or review books I don’t have yet..
