Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2016

Mount TBR 2016

The Mount TBR Challenge 2016 is being hosted by Bev at My Reader€™s Block. It€™s the most simple challenge €“ read your own books €“ that is, books you€™ve owned prior to January 1, 2016.

My target for 2016 is to reach Mt Ararat, although I€™d really like to make it up Mt Kilimanjaro (60 books), or even higher (most unlikely).

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