TBR Reading Challenge 2012

Note: On 31 Dec 2012 I sit here staring at this list and thinking, "Wow, I didn't get very far!" But 2013 is a new year, with new books to read.

I've been doing this TBR challenge since 2007. Last year, I sooooo failed...this year, linking in with my personal goals for 2012 I should do much better! I've made it a habit of reading over 100 books a year the past several years, so it's not for lack of trying that I don't succeed in a reading challenge. No, that would be my lack of "stick-to-it-ive-ness" that is my problem!

from one experience into the next said...

Somehow I landed on the TBR Reading Challenge site again. I have done the challenge the first two years, then it all failed and I moved abroad and didn't have time. Now I am back and am tempted... but I also know there's so much else I need to do...
But... then I read your list. And I do have the same Julia Cameron books waiting on my bookshelf as well :))
And I thought... why not! So I guess I should dive into it as well, right! It's a sign ;)
Happy Reading & Happy Challenge!
