2012 Mount TBR Reading Challenge

Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2012 is hosted by My Readers Block

The rules:
*Once you choose your challenge level, you are locked in for at least that many books. If you find that you're on a mountain-climbing roll and want to tackle a taller mountain, then you are certainly welcome to upgrade.

*Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2012.

*You may sign up anytime from now until November 30th, 2012.

*Books must be owned by you prior to January 1, 2012. No ARCs (none), no library books. No rereads. [To clarify--based on a question raised--the intention is to reduce the stack of books that you have bought for yourself or received as presents {birthday, Christmas, "just because," etc.}. Audiobooks may count if they are yours and they are one of your primary sources of backlogged books.]

*Books may be used to count for other challenges as well.

*Feel free to submit your list in advance (as incentive to really get those books taken care of) or to tally them as you climb.

*A blog and reviews are not necessary to participate. If you have a blog, then please post a challenge sign up and link THAT post (not your home page) into the linky below. Non-bloggers, please leave a comment declaring your challenge level.

*A progress site for reviews will go up in January and I will post the link in my sidebar for easy access.

I have been severley neglecting my own shelves since I started this blog, I didn't realise how many books I would receive for review, not that I am complaining, I have gotten to read so many great books thanks to this blog, and I thought it would take me a while to get started so had this big plan of reading my own books and reviewing them.  I think I have only managed to read 7-10 of my own books which is very bad for me as I am a quick reader.
Having said that, since most of my books are packed for our upcoming move I don't know how many I have to read so I am starting off low with...

  1. I keep repeating myself that I don't have to buy any books on my own every month because I have too many at home and a few I receive from Publishers and Authors, but do I ever listen to myself? Exactly! -.- So, that's why my TBR pile has been a huge Mountain since ever... Don't worry Michelle, step by step we're gonna rule our Mountains! ;D

  2. @Silvia-I know the feeling, especailly when there are good bargins on like 3 for £10, or if I can get a complete set cheaper than buying them individual. I really can't help myself.

  3. P.S.: I can't wait for you to read the Shifter series by Rachel Vincent!! <3

  4. I can't wait to read a lot of those books, Shifters, Body Finder, Red Glove, Blood Bound, Last Breath.

  5. I'm attempting Mt Kilimanjaro for 2012 - 50 books! I hope my class schedule will cooperate with me for that!

    Good luck - can't wait to see what you think of the ones you read!

  6. Welcome to the Challenge! So glad I've found a way to help us all with our towering mountains of TBRs! And glad to have you join us!
