Which is why...
I'm entering my first reading challenge: THE 2012 TBR PILE CHALLENGE!
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!
For more information, check this post on Bookish where Evie announces the challenge!
