2015 TBR Pile Reading Challenge


Feel like your TBR pile is becoming growing steadily from a pile to a mountain? Need to clear some shelves? Help is here! Hosted by The Bookish!

The Challenge: 

Read as many books in your TBR from 2014 and prior.

The Rules

  • Anyone can enter! You don’t have to be a blogger, just as long as you review the book you’ve read.
  • Any genre, length, or format of book counts as long as it is a book that’s been sitting on your self for some time. Short stories and novellas do count! The only stipulations that the book must have been released in 2014 or earlier. No 2015 ARCs or 2015 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed.
  • There will be a wrap-up post with a linky on the 25th of every other month (see sign up for schedule). If you did not sign up by January 17, this is where you can sign up as well.
  • There will be Read-A-Longs on months that do not have wrap-ups. You do not have to take part in our Read-A-Longs to participate in the TBR Pile Challenge.
  • There will be two giveaways – July and December.
  • You don’t have to follow Bookish to join the challenge, but you do have to follow us to be entered in the giveaways.

This challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2015. Signups will be open until January 16 at 11:30 AM.
