Year-Long Challenges 2018 > Dust the Shelf (2018)

January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018

Completed 0/???

Dusty Old Book

Clear away the cobwebs from the back of your shelves and find the books that have been waiting the longest for you to read. No more delays!

You can choose from physical shelves, or it can be a Goodreads shelf sorted by date added, or a combination. Read the books that have been waiting the longest. Owned or not, what matters is how long you've been meaning to read them.

**You can list up to 20 books that you will choose from for the challenge. Once listed, those are the books you must choose from.

**Deciding you're no longer interested in a book can count as long as you've read at least 20 pages to make sure, and you remove it from your shelves permanently. That'll be one less book gathering dust.
