Challenge: 2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

So the 2012 Blogger challenge has been announced and its the 2012 TBR (To Be Read) Pile Readings Challenge!

I have to say I think this challenge is a great idea, as it pushes all of us to finally go through that pile and finds some gems.

So including my iBooks I have 275 on my list. Yikes....I wonder how I will end up doing? 

Now 275 is probably a little high to aim for but they are simply the books I can choose from. I'm aiming for the

 21-30 - A Sweet Kiss level

Now that is only for the competition sack. I also have some person goals and if I get enough spare time I will hopefully hit 

41-50 - Married With Children level

Now considering its now November 2011 that means the list will change either increasing or decreasing until December 31st 2011, then the list of books to choose from will be finalized.

Crazy thing I actually decided a week before it was announced that I was going to go through that pile and here is just another motivation to help me do it!

And I now vow that I will not be purchasing any more books (unless they are provided to me, or I get a gift card to my favourite store for christmas) until I've gone through half the bound books on my TBR shelf and at least 20% of my eBooks. Still a big stretch but hey I have some free time coming up so I'm going to give it a shot.
