2018 Take Control
Welcome to the Sixth annual Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge!

The rules are simple: for the entire month of March, you focus on reading/listening to books in your TBR pile released before March 1, 2018. They can be eBooks, physical books or audiobooks. Let’s clean off those shelves and finish those series and trilogies!

This is one of my favorite events as my to-be-read pile is often neglected. For those with a backlist of ARCs have no fear, as long as they have already published you can count them!

I will provide motivation with a grand prize of a new release of your choice. I am giving you time to clear your calendars and sort through your TBR piles by posting early, so no excuses..we can do this! Open to all participants as long as Book Depository ships to your address.

Are you ready to accept the Challenge?

See the rules, link-up and share with friends.

      Yay. Glad you are signed up and that you enjoy it. I am hoping to actually meet my goals this year. I failed last year. *hangs head*

      Hi Lisa, Yes, you can do whatever you want.. You do not have to list books you will read, just set a goal for how many you want to read.

    This sounds like a really fun reading challenge. My to-read stacks are out of control. I probably have 200 books in my to-read stacks.

      This is the only challenge I failed last Would you believe hubs and I now have the flu? We tested positive for type A. I could just cry.

        • Kimberly

          We both finished our antibiotics on Sunday. Neither of us felt better, but Monday night we both ran fevers and had chills etc. Our granddaughter had type A not quite two weeks ago, apparently, there is a period between exposure and outbreak which is why it spreads so quickly. My lungs are clearing up but now my husband has pneumonia too, so mine must have been viral. Ugh. We just need to catch a break.
