2019 Tackle my TBR Challenge

As the year is coming to end I told myself that going into 2019 and 2019 in general that I need to read more of my own books. I really came to realize this past summer that I have so many of my own books sitting in boxes and on book shelves that aren’t being read and that is really a shame. Imagine if I took a physical inventory of how much is sitting there I would probably be shocked. Plus getting diagnosed with MS in November I realized that I need to read those books sitting there.

This past year I managed to read 22 of those books. Which isn’t a lot and I am hoping to double that at the end of 2019. Wish me luck!

New this year: challenge levels! (And yes, they’re football-themed.)

Pick a level, any level! (These are all based on a 1-5+ books per month average.)

  • Safety: read 12 TBR books
  • Blitz: read 13-24 TBR books
  • First Down: read 25-36 TBR books
  • Field Goal: read 37-48 TBR books
  • Hail Mary: read 49-60 TBR books
  • Touchdown: read 61+ TBR books

My goal is to do level First Down and that is to read 25-36 TBR books. I am setting it low so that I won’t get overwhelmed and if I read more then yay for me. I want this to be a stress free reading challenge since its the only one I am really doing along with the good reads one.
