A day late and a dollar short...
Ready When You Are, C.B. dared us all to read from our TBR piles only for a period of our choosing beginning 1/1/11. The deadline for accepting the dare was 12/31/10 at midnight Pacific Time.
As usual, I am late to the game but I am going to participate anyway. The most extreme dare was to go from 1/1/11 to 4/1/11 (translation for you across the Atlantic: that end date is April 1st, not January 4th).
Since I have about 400 books on my TBR pile. And since I really need to focus my disposable income on house projects, I am taking the dare and plan to only read TBR books until April 1st.
And I know I have already broken the main rule of the dare--to accept it by 12/31--but I haven't checked out, borrowed, been gifted, or purchased any books since before then. Thankfully I finally got my Persephone Secret Santa gift on 12/30 so I have those books already ensconced in my TBR. But more on the later this week.
Off I go to read something from my TBR.
