Clear Off Your Shelves Challenge

I think this challenge was designed with me in mind. Of course, the number of books that have been on my shelves for more than six months is simply mind-boggling. But the beauty of the Clear Off Your Shelves 2009 Challenge is that you only have to declare a percentage that you intend to read. So I can safely shoot for 20% of my reading for October and November to fit the guidelines and still have completed the challenge. Love this! Given that I have made some review commitments for those two months already, I think I will be a big baby and stick with the minimum percentage, which is indeed 20%. Obviously living on the edge is not my thing! But this should help remind me that it's not all about the new books, either in the mailbox or from the store. I should revisit why I bought or requested some of the stuff I did so very long ago.


  1. I've finally gotten to a point in my life where I can (happily, I think) give away every book I've not opened in a year. Or two. Like dresses. Or shoes.

  2. Sounds like a great idea, but I doubt I'd be able to do it.

    BTW, I tagged you for a book meme. Hope you don't mind :)

  3. Yay! Another one joining the fun!

  4. Wow you're a busy reading lady, Thanks for stopping by my blog, and no I'm sure the moms at your kids school were not tired of you, no Catholic is ever tired of talking about their faith, I don't know that we shove it down your throat but we'll talk anytime...


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
