This has been one of my favorite challenges for the past couple of years. I’m glad that Jenn is hosting it again for 2009.
Here are the rules:I decided several months ago that for the 2009 version of this challenge I was only going to list books that are ‘the next book’ in the many many series that I’m in the process of reading. So all 24 of the books that I’m listing are part of some series I’ve started but not completed or caught up to the current release.
* the challenge is to read 12 TBR books in 12 months -- you can read those all in one month if you want, or one a month, or however you wanna do it.
* you need to have a list posted somewhere for others to see (even if it's in a comment here)
* you CANNOT change your list after January 1st, 2009!!!
* you can create an Alternates list of MAXIMUM 12 books, if you want, in order to have options to choose from (you can read these in place of books on your original list).
* audiobooks and e-books ARE allowed
* re-reads are NOT allowed, as they aren't TRUE "TBRs"
* you CAN overlap with other challenges
I’m listing 12 primary and 12 alternates. My not so secret plan is to read all 24 but I’ll consider the challenge completed if I read at least 12.
