2019 TBR Challenge


In 2018, for the first time, I made a list prior to the start of the year with the aim to trim my ever expanding mountain of books to be read. Whilst I didn't climb all the way to the top of that mountain I did read a bunch of books which I had let sit on the shelf for way too long. 

See the results of my 2018 Challenge (spoiler - I didn't make it through all 36 books)

For 2019's challenge I'm going with 36 books again; the three books per month goal never felt out-of-reach nor did it put any pressure on my somewhat sporadic reading nature (I like to look a my shelves and select a book wherever the mood takes me). Much like last year I'm selecting a variety of books and have also included those left over from 2018's list in a separate section which doesn't add to the freshly minted 36 for 2019 - I may or may not get around to those.
