I've seen other Read Your Own Book challenges around the blogosphere, but I'm already behind with my challenges, so didn't want to add another one. Then I saw this challenge, which is limited to the month of August. Hey, one month isn't so bad! And I really need help getting through my huge TBR piles, so I took the plunge and signed up.
Mel at Mel's Books and Info said that she started the challenge to read the books already on her shelf, rather than buying new books, borrowing them from the library, or getting them from a friend.
The rules are pretty lenient. In fact, Mel is letting us come up with our own rules and limitations! She's even offering a prize to all challenge participants! How cool is that? So here are my rules for this challenge:
- read only books already on my shelf
- read ARCs or review copies received during the month that have a September release
- the 2 books I have on hold at the library are okay, but no new hold requests
- no new books
Wish me luck!
