May Wrap Up & June TBR

This year is STILL all about knocking books off that ever-growing TBR pile. At least, in theory. It does, however, seem that I am NOT doing a very good job because I keep acquiring more books and not reading the ones I already own.

  2. Unhaul unread monthly TBR

ABC Book Challenge: G

I’ve seen this book challenge around for a while now and traced it back to Classy x Book Reviews.

So, I’ve decided to take some drastic measures. I have pretty much catalogued all the books I own and set aside a few to donate, and by a few I mean about 6 out of over 400.

The Plan:

  1. Book buying ban for the remainder of the year (the library is your friend)

I am so a Monogamist reader. I have several books going, but haven’t finished any of them because let’s face it I’m also a Neurotic reader.  And, I’m definitely an Introverted reader. I am pushing myself to read outside my comfort zone, but it’s been a slow process.
