2009 TBR Light

For those who love the original TBR Challenge, but need a little less “pressure” on their reading, the TBR Challenge *LITE* offers you that option!

You have your choice of ONE of the 3 options:
OPTION A: read 6 books in 12 months ~ your list of books CANNOT be changed, but you are allowed to have an “Alternates” list to choose from (like in the Original TBR Challenge).

OPTION B: read 6 books in 12 months ~ you CAN change you reading list throughout the year

OPTION C: make up a list of however many books you think you could get read in 12 months, as long as they are from your TBR stack/list, and then read them between January 1st and December 31st. You must have at least 3 books on your list.

Some Other General Guidelines:
-You are allowed to overlap with other challenges
- Audiobooks are allowed
- e-Books are allowed, but must still be books that you’ve wanted to read for at least 3, or more, months
- You should still have a list of books posted somewhere for others to see- You don’t have to read your books in the order you put them on your list

A Yahoo! Group has been set up for this challenge ~ feel free to join!

I am going to pick Option C 12 books (where I can select alternatives). Here are some of the books on my TBR pile. I am really trying to read a majority of my books in 2009 from my TBR mountain! (I need the space back and I still have boxes of books in storage!!)

Awesome list. I really like Francine Rivers, Karen Kingsbury and all those good Christian authors. I also really enjoyed the first few of Diana Gabaldons books I need to get back to reading them and finish. Got stopped on Voyager I think.

Out of those listed hurry and read the Francine Rivers LOL!

OH really really like Dee Henderson. Don't recognize this one but I loved a couple of her series. I need to finish up all her books too. I know there is another series I haven't read yet.
