The goal of this challenge is to read books that have been sitting in my TBR pile for a long time. Basically make a list of 12 books that have been on your TBR pile for at least one year (any book published before 2014 qualifies as long as it has been on your list for a year) and read them before 2015 is over. For the full details of the challenge see Roof Beam Reader’s original post here.
I am actually really excited to do this because there are so many books that have been sitting on my TBR pile that I feel guilty about neglecting.
