2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Challenge Page
It is the time of the year where I review what I have done this year and what I want to do for next year.

I have many books that I have sitting on my shelves that I want to read, I purchased so I would read them, and then accepted review books that I feel guilty if I don't read right NOW!  So, my purchases collect dust on my shelves.

I am going to enter this challenge and try not to feel guilty about reading my purchased books!  This makes two challenges that I will do to read books for me!  I'm going to be brave and go for the second level in the challenge ~ A Friendly Hug 11-20 books!  Ok, now it's written down and I am going to do.  Honestly there is a little bit of anxiety in making this commitment for me.

Here are the rules to the challenge.
  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2014 - Dec 31, 2014.
  2. Anyone can enter! You don't have to be a blogger, as long as you review the book you've read! (On your blog, Amazon, Random Buzzers or Goodreads/Shelfari!)
  3. Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that's been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Short stories and novellas are OK, too! Only books released in 2013 and earlier! NO  2014 ARCs and 2014 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
  4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.
  5. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2013 TBRPILE Reading Challenge. (If you don't have a blog, post about it on Facebook or Tweet!)
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2014, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
  8. On the 20th of each month we will post a wrap-up post, here, on BOOKISH. Every wrap-up will have it's unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this monthFor each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It's open to INTERNATIONALS. The giveaway will be open until the next wrap up post goes up! (i.e. the entire month)
  9. If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice - we will be checking ;) 
  10. December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you'll link up in December will be entered into a GRAND PRIZE giveaway
  11. You don't have to follow Bookish Blog to join the challenge, but you do have to follow us to be entered in giveaways!
I am not going to list the books that I will read.  I want to be able to read one of the books that appeals to me on the day that I pick it up off of the shelf!
