Have you been reading so many new books that you don’t have time to get to the older titles on your want-to-read list? The Backlist Reader Challenge (#BacklistReader) is a year-long challenge for all those older books that have been piling up on your TBR pile and to-read list — not just the ones you own, but the ones you’ve been wanting to read for a while now. You can sign up here.
- To count for the challenge, books have to be published before 2016 AND be on your to-read list or pile. You don’t have to own it! If it’s been on your list to read, and it’s older than 2016, it counts.
- Create a goals or sign-up post on your blog or wherever you post your reviews. You can set your own goal, and you can list the books you want to read, or leave it up to your mood at the time — as long as they’re on your to-read list
- Review the books you read, and post the links on the review linky. You can post them on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you don’t have a blog.
- On or after the end of the year, post a wrap-up post to let everyone know how you did!
MY CHALLENGE GOAL: I want to read 40 books from my to-read list or TBR pile.
For my reading challenges, I always like to create a preliminary list of books that I want to complete. I usually like to look back at the end of the year and see how accurate my predictions were.
