Blogs I follow just keep coming out with more challenges and stuff for me to join! Once Upon a Chapter just started Operation: TBR Reduction, and it's like this challenge was made for me.
When I started The Towering Pile, I honestly believed my TBR pile was going to steadily shrink, or at the very least stop growing. Boy, was I wrong. It's gone up pretty steadily over the past several months! I seriously have a problem. I don't know how it happens. It seems like I've cut way down on my book buying, and I'm reading more than ever. But then there's NetGalley... So yeah, I need this challenge.
I already keep track of all the books I read and add to my pile in my monthly wrap-up posts, so all I'll be adding to that is the number by which my pile has gone up or (preferably) down. Mostly, this challenge will just give me people to whom I'll be accountable. :)
It's already clear that my TBR pile at the end of this month will be bigger than at the beginning of the month, but the challenge starts on May 1, and I'm hoping that at that point my pile will start to decrease. Wish me luck!!
Oh, and when the challenge starts, I'll post pictures of my TBR pile. I've been meaning to do that for a while, anyway. It's rather epic.
