After much thought, I’ve decided I’m going to give myself a little mini two part challenge for the rest of the year. Right now, I currently own 37 books that I have either never read (27) or that I’m going to try to finish after marking as DNF the first time (10).
For the last three months of this year I am going to try very, very hard to finish all my unfinished books. That means that I will have to read roughly 12 books for each month – October, November and December.
While that sounds like a lot to me, I also know it’s totally doable, because, for the other nine months of this year, I’ve read an average 10 books each month. Just a little more pushing, and I can make 12 books each month. Maybe not easily, but I know I can do it. (Also, I might discover why some of those DNF books were marked like that to begin with.)
I’ve already got a rough TBR planned for each month, especially for November as I hope to be participating in Sci-Fi Month and I’ve got my TBR filled with all my unfinished sci-fi books!
I’d say this is pretty self explanatory. I am not to buy any books until I finish ALL the books I currently own. Even though I know that my physical (and kindle) TBR is significantly less than others, I’ve noticed that books that I’m super excited for stay sitting on the shelf too long, or I loose interest in them.
Also, last month I finally read my last book that I bought in 2017. It only took me nine extra months! Which is way, way too long. Hopefully, I’ll be starting 2019 with a clean slate of books.
So, wish me luck and do let me know if you’ve ever done anything like this!
