Reading Challenge

Beat the Backlist Challenge Update

beat-the-backlist-2017

Another month gone, and the weather has turned decidedly autumnal which, if nothing else, gives us even more of an excuse to hide away with a book and a hot beverage.

Between reading through this year’s Booker shortlist and review copies, I haven’t managed to read any of my backlist titles for Novel Knight’s BTB Challenge this month! 😥

I am hoping to make a bit of a dint in my backlist this month, however, as I’m taking part in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon.  This is an event I’ve done before (see here), and even though I don’t think I’ll be able to read for the full 24 hours (I like sleep way too much for that!) I’m hoping that I can get through five or six titles over the weekend, and I’m going to try to focus predominantly on older titles that I’ve had for a while.

TBR Watch

Whilst I haven’t read any of my older books, I did decide to have a bit of a cull of my TBR, and I’ve removed a few books that I just don’t think I’ll ever get around to reading.  Some of these went to friends, others to the charity shop.  Either way, I hope that they’ll find good homes!

So, my TBR now looks something like this:

    1. 😂 I don’t think I’ve got any chance of reading all of mine now… Oh well – there’s always next year!

      1. Consider your backlist challenge a success though as you’ve done way better than me! And I’m sure new books bought this year, don’t count 🤔
