Challenge: Read Your Own Books 2009

readown3 This one might be tricky to combine with the other challenges I’m doing next year, but when my TBR pile is over 200 books (holy crap), I’ll deal with it.

The RYOB 2009 challenge is being hosted by MizB at MizB Challenges You. Here’s the rules:

* set a goal for how many of your OWN books you’d like to read in 2009

* read from your own collection between January 1st and December 31st, 2009

I’ve decided to go for reading 25 books from my TBR pile, not including any new ones that I add to it in 2009. It does include books I bought the year before, though they might not have come until this year. Let’s see if I can knock a chunk out of that monster!
