In 2016 I started this challenge because I joined Goodreads in 2012, and still had books on my "to read" shelf from back then. They just stared at me... mockingly... asking me when I'm going to either read them or remove them from my shelf...
So in 2016 I cleaned out the closet and read or deleted all the books I have left on my TBR that I added in 2012.

It gave me a real kick in the pants to get those old books read, so I did it again in 2017 and in 2018. Although I didn't *quite* reach my goal, it did have me reading interesting books, and deleting others off my TBR.
So I'm doing it again in 2019. Would you like to join me?

This reading challenge is simple...
>sort your "to read" shelf by date
>pick the books that you are going to read which have been on your list the longest and set yourself a goal. You may decide to read all of your books from the oldest year, or you may just take the oldest 20, or 50, or 5 books on your list. Completely up to you how you set your goal and how many books you read!

I would appreciate it if you post your thoughts on the books once you finish them. Was it worth waiting for? :)

-Karen

Keely (kiwifruit192) | 512 comments I'm so happy to be doing this challenge again this year as it helps motivate me to read books on my TBR list.

This year I have decided to focus mostly on books that are part of a series. Some will be part of series that I have started, but not yet finished. As some of the books are fairly short and I beat my target of 20 books last year, I am going to aim for at least 25 books. Most of the books have been on my TBR list since 2012 or 2013 so it will help clean up some of my earlier added books.

I'm planning on reading books I added 2012-2016. I'm hoping to also take books off my to-read list that I am no longer interested in as I go. I at least want to have less than 100 books on my 2012 list, which means reading at least 22 books for that year.

Melanie (mvalente89) | 714 comments Alright so I'm hoping to clear out everything added in 2014 which is the oldest stuff I have on here and this should be a good way to motivate me. 2015 is when I really started keeping track of stuff and added my entire collection, so 2014 isn't too bad in terms of the number of books.

The only items I will be skipping that I added in 2014 are the Game of Thrones books plus the companion book The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones. I don't want to start those until I actually know the next book is coming out as I don't want to be stuck waiting a bajillion years like the people who are current on the series.

So excluding GoT, I have 26 books left that were added in 2014 (17 are on my physical bookshelves, 6 I have ebooks of, and 3 I don't have at all).

12. The Vampire Diaries Vol. 1 by Colleen Doran
13. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Kelly | 54 comments I already deleted a lot of books the past few days but I'd like to join you for this challenge. I still have a few books I added back in 2015 and 2016 so I will try to focus on those. (If I added a first in a series, I will try to finish the series as well).

LittleRedRidingHood | 313 comments Let's get cracking! 😎

I had the misfortune to start 2018 with really bad picks so I completely ditched the challenge until the midyear when I finaly picked it back up. Hopefully this year is going to be different. My aim is to clear 30 to 40 books, with primary goal to read all the books from the list I posted in 2017. This year I'm also going to add books on my yearly TBR, since majority of them is from 2016 when I joined GR.

I think either of those options Beth! You could also pick books that are from a series you haven’t finished, or the books that are easiest for you to get your hands on?

Welcome to the challenge everyone and merry Christmas!

I’ll link your posts to the top soon 😉

I was thinking about having a google sheet with all of us on there and our goals so we can watch everyone’s progress and hopefully encourage ourselves to read those books. Thoughts?
