Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2015

Mount TBR 2015

It’s that time of year when next year’s challenges are being set. I’m not sure I’ll be taking part in many, but one I’ll definitely be doing is Bev’s 2015 Mount TBR Reading Challenge as I still have many unread books on my shelves (both physical and digital). 

Challenge Levels:

Pike’s Peak: Read 12 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Blanc: Read 24 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Vancouver: Read 36 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Ararat: Read 48 books from your TBR piles/s
Mt. Kilimanjaro: Read 60 books from your TBR pile/s
El Toro: Read 75 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Everest: Read 100 books from you the nr TBR pile/s

Mount Olympus (Mars): Read 150+ books from your TBR pile/s

With just 7 books to read I’m hoping to reach my target for this year – to reach Mt Ararat (48 books) and I’ll be aiming for the same target next year. If I get higher so much the better!

Bev has set a few rules:

*Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2015.

*You may sign up any time from now until November 4th, 2015.

*Books must be owned by you prior to January 1, 2015. No ARCs (none), no library books. No rereads. [To clarify–based on a question raised last year–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 and E-books may count if they are yours and they are one of your primary sources of backlogged books.]

*You may count any “currently reading” book that you begin prior to January 1–provided that you had 50% or more of the book left to finish in 2014.  

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

*There will be quarterly check-ins and prize drawings!

  1. Good luck! I shall do it again next year as well (I also am not going as many challenges next year) but am still cogitatiing on how many and what sort of books – I may go for chunky and thus less in number, or maybe all non-fiction. We’ll see. I like the fact that all the books I bought this year will now be eligible. lol!
