30 Day Book Challenge: Day 25

Last year I found this book challenge (since then I have seen many variations of it, but I like this one best!), and have been intrigued about how I would answer the questions posed. Feel free to comment with your own answer or post the challenge to your own blog.

Any Five Books From Your "To Be Read" Stack

OK, so I have 764 books in my TBR pile on Goodreads. If I read one of those a week it would take me almost 15 years...that is, of course, if I don't add any more books to the pile, which is not (use your best hoyty-toyty British accent) "Not Bloody Likely". I take comfort in knowing that my TBR list is shorter than my Read list and I move on...

Here are 5 books, that I really, really, really want to read, and, yet, every year they're in still looking at me in my TBR.

Kindred Octavia Butler
The Name of the Rose Umberto Eco
Neverwhere Neil Gaiman
American On Purpose Craig Ferguson
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy John le Carre

Day 29 – Saddest character death OR best/most satisfying character death (or both!)

  1. What a challenge? Does it go on all year? Can you start at any time? Or is there a start date? It sounds like something I would love to do.

    I have tons of books still in my TBR pile. It just grows and grows. :)

  2. I think you can start it at any time. It's supposed to be a 30 day challenge, but I do it whenever I feel like doing it. The other challenge I did...the 30 song challenge, I did once a week (for the most part) for 30 weeks.

    Yeah, my TBR is crazy long, I love that GR let's me dump it out somewhere, but then I know what books are resting on my brain list...waiting for their chance!
