Clear Away the Clutter's purpose:
If you are like me, you have an abundant amount of review and TBR books that desperately need your attention. This mini challenge will challenge you to read and do something with those titles once they have been completed.
Your goal is read as many titles as you can and pass along those that you do not absolutely want to keep. This means that if you do not plan to re-read a certain book at least once or twice... get rid of it, as it is just clutter.
•The mini challenge begins March 1st and ends May 31st. You can join at any time once the challenge has begun.
•Anyone is welcome to participate in the mini challenge.
•By the end of the challenge, you MUST get rid of all the titles that you do not absolutely love. You can hold a contest, donate, give to a friend, etc. Your ultimate goal here is to clean off your shelves.
•You do not have to have a blog to participate. If you are interested, please email Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
•Please create a post for titles you plan to read. You can of course update and modify this list at any time.
•Once a novel is completed, let us know what you plan to do with it. You can put this information beside the title in your challenge list post. Right now, I'm thinking about a contest for all the books I read but don't want to keep.
•Crossover with other Challenges is welcome.
•Packrat: Read and clean out 5 titles
•Mini-Packrat: Read and clean out 10 titles
•Organizer: Read and clean out 15 titles
•Cleaner: Read and clean out 20 titles
Would love to achieve the Cleaner level, but will aim for the Mini-Packrat level so I don't disappoint myself by failing another challenge. Remember what Casey Kasem used to say...keep your feet on the ground, but keep reaching for the stars. Something like that... :)
