Let’s be honest here, we all have those books we’ve received for review (whether requested or not!), but we just haven’t gotten to them yet. Or maybe we went a little crazy with the ‘request’ buttons on NetGalley or Edelweiss, and we need to catch up.
That’s what this challenge is for.
And I’m super excited to be co-hosting this event with Reanna. When she offered to help out I was like, “Oh my gosh, yes! That would be awesome!” And contrary to what she might say in her sign-up post, she is more than along for the ride.
So I hope that you’ll join us on this year-long quest to reduce the size of your review book reading pile and maybe by year’s end you won’t be feeling quite as guilty as you were when it started!
If you’re anything like me you feel majorly guilty. Even if you didn’t specifically request those books.
We’ve decided to break down the challenge into levels. During the year you can move up, but you cannot move down. Just let everyone know in your signup post what you’re aiming for.
1-10 – Apprentice
11-20 – Journeyman
21-30 – Master
31-40 – Grand Master
40+ – Adept
I’m shooting for Master, but I hope by the challenge end I’ll move up to Grand Master.
