Do You Think You Could...

not add anything to your TBR pile for a week, or a month? How about TWO months? That is my challenge. I am going to try and not check out anything new from my library or buy anything new for August and September. I have so many books (as we all do) to get at that I want to just attack what I have. If I get an unsolicited book OR if I win a contest those don't count, I will add them. AND I already pre-ordered and paid for Mockingjay so that doesn't count either. I am going to keep a list of upcoming and just released books so that in October I can start on a fresh batch, and also give my library time to get some of them ordered. I am just going to try and not acquire anything new.

Think I am crazy? I even have my doubts that I can do this, but it is worth a shot!

  1. I have seen that quite a number of bloggers are trying this. I know that I can not. I am trying not to add more books than I read in a week. It doesn't shrink the TBR pile but it does keep it from growing. Good luck!

  2. I know Kathy! Right before I wrote that I put two books on hold at my library (one from your blog!). It is such an addiction, but so much fun and so wonderful!

  4. Now that is a worthy goal! I would love to knock a few off my TBR mountain!

  5. Good idea, though I have a hard time doing it. And you're very smart to make an exception for Mockingjay, because who could resist that!

  6. It's possible! The problem is they keep adding themselves from giveaways, etc. Good Luck!
