March 2015 Take Control Of Your TBR Pile Challenge

March 2015 Take Control Of Your TBR Pile Challenge

Since my TBR piles are getting out of control, I couldn't resist signing up for this one month Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge! During the month of March, I'm going to concentrate on reading some of the books from my TBR stacks and dust off a few sadly neglected titles. Knowing that I had signed up for this challenge, I didn't make any new review commitments for March.

It's been awhile since I've read a book without a deadline, so I'm not going to choose my books in advance. I'll either let my mood dictate what to read or, if I'm feeling reckless, will let pick a title for me!

I want to read at least eight books for the month, hopefully more because I'm already behind with my yearly reading goal.

Wish me luck!


  1. So excited you are taking part in this as well! It was so much fun last year and I love the excuse to spend a whole month doing nothing but reading what I want to instead of what I have to. ;)

    Good luck with your goals!!

    1. Thanks! I'm looking forward to just sitting back & reading whatever I want!

  2. Here's to reading what you want!

    1. I'm way too excited about this! lol

  3. Oh good luck! I haven't joined this challenge as I don't think I could do it. lol.

    1. I thought about joining one of the other TBR challenges but didn't think I would finish them. I like that this is only for one month, so figured I could handle one month. Fingers crossed I don't screw it up! ha!

  4. Eight books is an excellent goal Alexia..good luck!!

  5. 8 books is an awesome goal! Good luck with it!
    I've used to pick books before, it's prety fun.

    1. Thanks Michelle! I like using the randomizer sometimes to add a little fun to my reading picks. Sort of like playing the lottery, only with books! lol
