In other words, you don’t have to own it. If it’s been on your list to read, and it’s older than 2016, it counts. Library books, books you picked up at a yard sale, books you borrowed from a friend, ebooks, print books, audiobooks — any book counts as long as it fits those two criteria.The rules are pretty simple. Only (1) and (2) are mandatory.(1) To count for the challenge, books have to be published before 2016 AND be on your TBR list or pile.
If you can, please include a link to this post! Then link your sign-up post where you see the “Add your link” button below. (Please link the actual goals/sign-up post, not your home page.) 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 TBR list. You can sign up through December 1, 2017; after that, the sign-up link will be closed.(2) Create a goals or sign-up post on your blog or wherever you post your reviews.
(3) Review the books you read, and post the links on the review linky.
Actually, you can do the challenge without writing reviews, but the review links are your entries for the year-end giveaway (a $10 gift certificate.) Reviews don’t have to be long, just a few sentences is fine. You can post them on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you don’t have a blog.
(4) On or after the end of the year, post a wrap-up post
to let us know how you did! I’ll create a link-up post for the wrap-up posts, too. Again, this one isn’t absolutely necessary, but I hope you’ll do it anyway, just for the fun of looking back and seeing your accomplishment!
I have a HUGE back list of books I want to read so I'm going to enjoy this challenge, I'm going to aim for 50 books off my backlist and hopefully I'll get to more.
