#Kindle TBR …out of control!

by N@ncy

  1. According to my KINDLE I have 1352 unread books.
  2. If I want to bring this number down to zero
  3. …I would  have to read 10 books a month for the next 11 years!
  4. It is time to join Bev’s challenge Mount TBR 2022
  5. @MyReadersBlock
  6. You can participate on her blog or via her Goodreads group!
  7. I think the ONLY challenge I will be joining in 2022 is
  8. Goodreads Mount TBR  2022
  9. Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2022
  10. The link provides ALL the information  you need to…
  11. Choose a level,
  12. Open a topic under one of the challenge level folders
  13. Name your climb.
  14. Reviews are optional!
  15. you can link to the GR bookpage
  16. …use a number score:  i.e.  4/5 stars
  17. (leave a short comment….or not.)
  18. you can link to your blog review
  19. This gives me the freedom to only review
  20. …EXCELLENT  books I’ve read on my blog.

 

Last thoughts:

  1. I will use the month of December to
  2. plan my 2022 reading
  3. remove books I WILL NEVER  read from my Kindle.
  4. I will update  my progress on twitter with
  5. #MountTBR2022
  6. It is time to prepare for 2022
  7. …before the Xmas Holidays
  8. …get in the way.

 

UPDATE: 06.12.2021

    I have way too many books (I don’t know the count, I will check later) on my Kindle and I don’t even like to read e-books. I think the Mount TBR challenge is a great idea… I have done it in the past at Bev’s blog, but it has been a few years. Doing it on Goodreads might work better for me. I could even have sub-challenge to read a certain number of e-books.

      Tracy, I think if I do this challenge via Goodreads group…then I’ll stick to it.
      I’m not one who visits many blogs…so I like to concentrate my reading on GR.
      I’m surprised how many CF I have on my Kindle!!
      I’m curious what you are planning to do in the form of reading challenges in 2022!
      Hope you join this challenge!

        I will definitely join this challenge, Nancy. I am glad you pointed me to the Goodreads version.

        The other challenges I am planning are the European Reading Challenge and the Japanese Literature Challenge. The Japanese Lit. Challenge only runs January – March, which I like.

      I think if I concentrate ALL my reading on Goodreads instead of via other blogger”s websites that I can get a lot of reading done. It takes time to visit other blogs as you know.
      I made a list of several genres to read each month so my reading does not get boring.
      I’m curious what you are planning to do in the form of reading challenges in 2022!

  4. Wow. Over 1,000! I think I would definitely start by culling those titles that I will never read.

    It’s so easy to add books to the kindle, especially when you come across irresistible deals late at night when resistance levels are low. My problem is thst I forget I’ve bought them

      I was so surprised how many bookS bought in 2015 AND still 51 not read! I am very susceptible to shortlists of books up for a prize. Cannot resist the challenge of reading them all! I started this morning reading 1/51. I am whizzing through my usual websites/news items/Twitter in 15 min instead of a leisurely hour with my coffee. I hope to gain more reading time and less social media. Thanks for your comments and I shall stop by your blog see what you are reading and your plans for 2022!

    I don’t know how many I have and I’m going to keep it like that! I am doing a physical TBR challenge my husband set me, to read all 85 books on my TBR (not including the ones I’m planning to read with my best friend) from Oct 05 2021 to Oct 05 2022 and only then am I allowed to read Dave Grohl’s Storytelling, which I really want to read but tipped my husband over the edge about my TBR, somehow! Happy Kindling!

      So glad to see you joining me on this climb! I must admit the days spent sweeping through my TBR books were fun! I found so many reads long forgotten but still waiting for me. You have always inspired me to keep reading. I try to keep up with you…at least 10 books a month.
      This CHALLENGE seems to be so easy to keep track of instead of hopping around so many book blogs. Thanks for your comment!
