October is here. Which means that from now through the end of the year, I will be reading only my own books.* No review copies. No library books. Just the ones that have been hanging out on my own shelves for awhile, patiently waiting for me to read them. Of course, I will still only manage to get through a small portion of my unread books, but I am really looking forward to this “break.”
So what am I going to read? Well, that’s a good question. I have some ideas – pictured below – but I’d really like to just wander through our shelves and find whatever I am in the mood for. No planning.
Jen at Devourer of Books is joining me in November, but she’s focusing on ebooks since that’s where her biggest backlog is. And Anita from A Woman, A Wife, A Mom expressed interest in joining me in November as well. This isn’t a formal challenge at all, but I’ll happily welcome anyone who wants to play along. I did make myself a little button (because buttons are fun) and I am going to use the hashtag #RMOB.
I am going to start with City of Bones. Wish me luck!
*I speak only of my print books. I am free to read library and review audio- or e-books, since my tbr in those formats is not nearly as frightening. But I may make a point to read older copies of those as well.
