hosted at Roof Beam Reader
The Goal: To finally read 12 books from your “to be read” pile (within 12 months). Each of these 12 books must have been on your bookshelf or “To Be Read” list for AT LEAST one full year. This means the book cannot have a publication date of 1/1/2014 or later (any book published in the year 2013 or earlier qualifies, as long as it has been on your TBR pile). Caveat: Two (2) alternates are allowed, just in case one or two of the books end up in the “can’t get through” pile.

  1. The Bossy Bridegroom – since 9/6/2012
  2. The Indomitable Miss Harris – since 7/11/2013
  3. Bury the Lead – since 4/13/2012
  4. Catwalk – since 1/3/2011

  7. The Edge of Light – since 4/1/2011
