2016 TBR Pile Reading Challenge


This is the 5th Annual TBR Pile Reading Challenge! Hosted by Evie @ Bookish Lifestyle.

We all have those books. We buy them, win them, they’re gifted to us. Then we put them up on a bookshelf and there they stay, collecting dust, waiting for the time when we’ll finally decide to pick them up.

Join us on a quest to dust off your TBR Pile and read all the books you’ve been telling yourself you’ll read next time you’ll get a chance. This is your chance!

The Challenge: 

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

The Rules

  1. Anyone can enter! You don’t have to be a blogger, just as long as you review the book you’ve read. You can review on your book on your blog, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, etc.
  2. 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 2015 or earlier. No 2016 ARCs or 2016 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed.
  3. On the last Monday of every other month there will be a wrap-up for the previous two months. These will contain a new linky for you to add your own wrap-up posts or reviews.
  4. Use #2016TBRPile to keep in contact with fellow challenge participants, to encourage each other on, and make new friends!
This challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2016. The sign up will remain open until November 30, 2016 at 12:00pm.
