Hello guys :)
I know that TBR reducer is kind of slower than other marathons but still, it's a reading marathon, which means that reading should be top priority in our schedules. For this reason, I have some advice about you guys:

1) Read small and light books. Your number of books read grows more and more and at the same time, your tbr is reduced as well
2) If you are in a reading slump or feel like getting into one, reread books you have already read. It may not reduce the TBR but it will surely be counted and it may also get you out of the slump. Reading books you are almost sure you'll love helps as well
3) Try to avoid social media and TV (that's very very very difficult for me). I don't watch TV but I am ADDICTED to tumblr and I also watch TV series and anime on my laptop so it's kinda the same as watching TV. Both these can distract you from your reading goals and this is not the best thing ever
4) Make a schedule. Fold the page you want to reach in a day or put a second bookmark in there so you'll remember your goal. DON'T push yourself too much though, know your limits and work on that
5)If you have other priorities like exams, STOP the TBR reducer. It's okay if you don't take part. It my distract you from your activities and do more bad than good
6) Whatever you decide to read, whether it's MG, YA or NA/Adult, make sure it will appeal to you. Reading half a book and then stopping because you don't like it takes time

I hope these helped, friends ♥
