2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Here I go signing up for another challenge. But I'm not all that worried about this one, because it's going to line in fabulously with a major focus of the upcoming year: trying to get through the massive TBR of awesome books I have sitting here. I am a shopaholic and at this point I think I have 70 books on my shelf that I'm dying to read but haven't yet. I just can't say "no" to a good deal. Anyway, here are the rules incase anyone else wants to get involved. This sounds like it should be incredibly fun!


This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2012 – Dec 31, 2012.

As we would like to see quality reviews linked up to our monthly wrap-ups, only bloggers can enter. Sorry about that!

Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that’s been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Only books released in 2011 and earlier! NO ARCs and 2012 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!

You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.

When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2012 TBR PILE Reading Challenge (You need to include the info + host list + challenge button. You can also grab the button code and add it to your sidebar!)

You can move up levels, but no moving down.

Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2012, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.

At the end of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will have it’s unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this month. For each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It’s open to INTERNATIONALS. For participating in the mini-challenge you will get +1 entry.

If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice – we will be checking

December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you’ll link up in December will be entered into a HUGE giveaway – 12 books, 12 winners, INTERNATIONAL.

You don’t have to follow all the hosts to join the challenge, but you do have to follow all of us to be entered in giveaways!


1-10 – A Firm Handshake
11-20 – A Friendly Hug
21-30 – A Sweet Kiss
31-40 – Love At First Sight
41-50 – Married With Children

You can find an official sign up post with a complete list of hosts here.

I think I will be aiming to complete A Sweet Kiss. Sounds about right for the blog that rates in hearts, wouldn't you agree? ;) I think that reading 21 - 30 of the books on my shelf should be no issue considering some of the fabulous titles I have sitting here. Plus, I love the way that book challenges present an opportunity to make reading just a little more social.
