Joining the TBR Triple Dog Dare....and I will succeed!!
Have I said before that I'm not really into challenges? Well, if I haven't let me just say - I'm not really into challenges. I'm way too moody in my reading. I do have a book group that I'm part of and reading those books is about as far as I can go. This is why I haven't joined in the various lovely challenges that are encouraging the participants to 'read their own books' or 'clear out their e-reader' or whatever.
I have joined this year's TBR Triple Dog Dare. James at James Reads Books is the leader and he says this is the last one. About time I joined in. It's not a challenge - it's a dare. To read only books that were already in your stacks as of December 31, 2015. This dare continues until the end of March.
The only exceptions to the 'rules' that I'll have is if I need to acquire a book for my mystery book group or if I decide to join in on another book group and the same thing happens. Also, I am attending the Left Coast Crime mystery conference at the end of February. Books will be acquired there. I can guarantee it.
That's it. My pledge - only my current books until the end of March. We'll see if I can manage that. If I succeed (I'll succeed - yes, I will!), then I might extend my personal 'dare'.
