Paris (pah13) | 4285 comments Scale Your TBR Mountain Challenge



The object of this year long challenge is to knock off as many books as you can from your TBR. First you’ll pick a level, then each month you’ll read books that were put on your TBR during that same month of any previous year (except for 2017). There will also be alternate options just in case you run out of books from a certain month.

Please put when the book was added to your TBR, the date read and your rating when you post.

An example for me for the easy level would be:
January
1. The Nightmare Garden by Caitlin Kittredge (put on TBR Jan. 26, 2012)
2. Fragile Brilliance by Tammy Blackwell (put on TBR Jan. 23, 2013)

Levels:
Valley Wanderer: 1-2 Books
Hill Hiker: 3-5 Books
Mountain Climber: 6+ Books

If you run out of books during a certain month, you can use one or more of these to make your level goal for the month. You can also make up your own alternates, but they have to work with the challenge.

Alternate Options
• Read a book from the month before or the month after the month you’re working on.
• Read the oldest book on your TBR
• Finish (or get caught up on) a series (this is an exception to the nothing from 2017 rule)
• Knock out all of (or as many as you can) of the books by a certain author on your TBR
• Read a book that has a title that starts with the same letter of the month you’re working on
• Read a book that has an author with a last name that starts with the same letter of the month you’re working on
• Read a book that has the letters of the month you’re working on in the title (does not have to be in consecutive order)
• Read a book that was published in the month you’re working on

Typically, but I am the same as you. So usually I will pick the lower or medium level and then if I read over that in say January, but not in February, then that's okay.

It's supposed to be fun and help you whittle down that TBR, so please do whatever works best for you. If you want to pick a different level for each month you can do that.
