Kadijah Michelle (Kadmich) | 2172 comments CLEAR ALL YOUR BOOKSHELVES CHALLENGE
Duration: January 1 to December 31, 2018


This challenge is a way to clean out all of your bookshelves: your physical, your electric, and your audible ones! The books you read for this challenge are books you that are already in your possession. Whatever you do for this challenge, you are not allowed to read a book obtained after December 31, 2017 unless you have read at least 5 books you already own.

Here are some ideas on how to choose your books:

1. Read a book that you borrowed from a friend and want to return when finished.
2. Read a book that you have had for two+ years and haven't started.
3. Read a book you have started, set aside for awhile, and now want to finish.
4. Read a book that you own that will help towards a yearly challenge.
5. Read a book from your shelf then donate it to your local Little Free Library, church, shelters, Goodwill, etc.

List the number of
Physical Books:
Ebooks:
Audible Books:
you want to read (listen to).

Kadijah Michelle (Kadmich) | 2172 comments How to Participate

1. Post here telling the challenge leader that you'd like to join the challenge. You can choose your books for the challenge at the beginning, or add them as you go. You can join a challenge at any time, as long as the challenge is still active.

2. Whenever you finish a book for the challenge, post here and let the challenge leader know so they can update your progress.

Some members choose to update their original post with their progress to keep track of their challenge more easily, but make sure to also post a new message so the challenge leader knows to go look at your original post. You can look at how other members report their progress to find a strategy that works well for you.

For more information about how challenges work, check out this thread or ask your challenge leader.

Participants

For this challenge, the updates are done a little differently. I share a spreadsheet with you all because of the number of columns needed. Please let me know if you need help understanding how it works.
