Hosted by The YA Book Traveler, this challenge is meant to motivate us to read the books already published, instead of ARCs and such.
I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of books I’ve neglected (some for well over 10 years, eek!) in favor of newer releases and ARCs.
I don’t think I’ll try to read specific books for this challenge, but I will list a few I’m thinking about because they’ve been on my shelves way too long. I’ll be keeping track of the books I read for this challenge on a goodreads shelf.
- Read at least one book per month that’s been on my shelf at least a year
- Read at least one Kindle book purchased over a year ago
Some of the books I’m considering for this:
Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullun
I’m not sure if I can count it, since I read it before I
knew about this challenge, but I finally read The Pearl by John Steinbeck this month. It’s been on my shelf for probably 12 years, and I’d already decided late last year that I wanted to start reading more of the books I’ve had for ages. So, I’m counting it anyway.
I feel everyone and their grandmother has read most of these, and I’m one of the last to read them. But, if you also haven’t read one/some of these, and you’re interested in reading any of these books together, let me know. I love buddy-reads!
Have you read any of these? Which do you think I should read first?
