I’m cutting back on challenges this year; I plan to start with one year-long challenge and occasional shorter ones. I love challenges, but keeping track of them seems to take a lot of time that I’d rather spend reading and reviewing, so I’m trying to simplify things this year.
NOTE: The ending dates for each challenge are a month earlier than shown. I add an extra month because the UBB Reading Challenge widget doesn’t show or count the books until the review is posted… but I only include books actually read during the official dates of the challenge.
The Backlist Reader Challenge 2017
Host: The Bookwyrms Hoard
Progress: 0/24 (0%)
I’m hosting The Backlist Reader Challenge, which is for older books (published before 2016) that are on your TBR shelves or want-to-read list. My goal is to read at least 24 older/backlist books that I haven’t read before. There will be at least one giveaway for challenge participants, but as the host, I’m not participating in that!
