I’ve decided that any challenges I take part in next year have to help me read my own books – books I’ve owned before 1 January 2014.
I read about the TBR Triple Dog Dare on Annabel’s blog. For the past three years, CB at Ready when you are, CB has hosted a TBR Dare, made into a Dog Dare in honour of Dakota, his Bassett Hound. This year the Triple Dog Dare will be, so he says, the last one. I’ve not taken part before, but this year it seems just the right thing to do to keep me focused on reading from my own bookshelves. So I’ve signed up for the full three months €“ will you?
You are allowed to make whatever exceptions you need as long as you set them prior to January 1, so I’m going to except books chosen for my local book group.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to stop acquiring books €“ you just have to resist reading them until after March 31st, but I’m going to try not buying books too.
