2015 Shelf Love Challenge


IT’S TIME! Put away your wallet. Charge up that e-Reader. Dust off those bookshelves. Join Rose, Julie and Lynn from ChapterBreak.net and Terri from Second Run Reviews in reading the books you already own. I am joining up!

Think you can do it? Don’t think you can do it? Why not rise up to our challenge and join in on the fun!

 The Challenge:  

To read as many books as you already own, on your physical book shelf or on your e-reader.


The Rules

  • Abstain from spending money on books for one calendar year (or follow a monthly book budget). If someone gives you a gift card you can spend those–it’s not your money. Audible credits are okay too, but buying extra Audible credits is not!
  • Library books do not count for this challenge. This challenge is mainly for books you already own.
  • Encourage other challenge participants via comments, social media and emails.
  • Participate in the monthly posts. The link up post will go live on the first of each month and be open for 30 days.
  • You do not have to have a blog to participate.

This challenge will run from January 1 to December 31, 2015. 

My Goal

My goal for this challenge is Regular Date Night with Your Shelves (31-40 books).
