Welcome back you Hoarders! The Annual Hoarders Challenge is BACK!

For this challenge, you are trying to reach past those dusty old shelves (virtual or actual.. your Goodreads TBR list definitely needs some love, & I know it!) and getting those books you hoard, it's like a yearly spring clean!! This challenge is a "go by the list challenge" and you can find the designated categories listed below! You can compete the listed categories in as many rounds as needed!


Categories
1. Book that has been on your TBR list the longest
2. Book from a physical stash somewhere in your house
3. Book you got for free
4. Book you gave up on but promised to try again and finish this time
5. Book recommended by a friend
6. Book from BOTM selection you missed
7. Book from a series you abandoned
8. Book classic you got and never opened
9. Book that is in the 1-99 that is on your TBR list (virtual list here on goodreads)
10. Book that is/was assigned in school that you never really "read" - SKIMMING DOESNT COUNT!


Rules
To complete the challenge you must scratch off each number

If you are/were within 50 pages of completion on January 1st, 2019, the books is all game! And likewise - if you are 50 pages or less into a book starting January 2018 - book is GAME!

NO re-read books! I know it is fun, but this challenge is for cleaning of them books y'all!

=========

Duration
Jan. 1st 2018 through Jan. 1st 2019 - clock strikes midnight, you're done!
