Mount TBR 2018 Reading Challenge

The reading challenge sign-ups continue with Bev’s Mount TBR 2018 Challenge. This is her seventh year hosting this challenge that encourages readers to read the books that have been purchased over the years and never read. I have an embarrassing amount of books on my to-be-read shelf, so I am definitely participating in this challenge again. There are several levels to this challenge, each of which is represented by a different mountain:

Pike’s Peak: Read 12 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Blanc: Read 24 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Vancouver: Read 36 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Ararat: Read 48 books from your TBR piles/s
Mt. Kilimanjaro: Read 60 books from your TBR pile/s
El Toro: Read 75 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Everest: Read 100 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Olympus (Mars): Read 150+ books from your TBR pile/s

With less than a month left in 2017, I am still working on reaching Mount Vancouver’s 36 books. In 2018 I’m going to stretch myself a bit to try and climb Mt. Ararat by reading 48 books from my TBR pile. Not only do I like the biblical connection, but I also really want to make a dent in my unread books. In fact, unless a really amazing book comes up, I plan on only reading previously purchased books in 2018.

As I finish each book on my TBR pile I’ll be listing it on my 2018 Reading Challenges page.
