Clear Off Your Shelves Challenge

Swapna at S. Krishna’s Books is hosting the Clear Off Your Shelves Challenge.  The idea is to read a percentage of books (participants can choose their percentage) that have been on your shelves for over six months.  No list is required at sign-up.  The challenge runs from October 1 – November 30, 2009.  Need more details?  Click here.

My goal is 30%.

This challenge comes at a good time for me.  I’m in the process of creating an Excel spreadsheet of all my purchased, unread books.  My goal is to read 75 books that I’ve purchased (including future purchases) by December 31, 2010.  Anything that will assist me with reaching my goal, is welcomed!


Series Challenge Season 3

I found another challenge to join.  The goal is to choose several series that you have previously started and want to finish (you will be up-to-date at the end of this challenge).  You must read at least 4 books.  The challenge is from December 1, 2008 – November 30, 2009.  Details can be found here.
