As bloggers we are all on timetables to read books, get reviews posted, host giveaways, etc.
But we also travel around to other blogs and see books we would just like to read because of their recommendation or the cover or title catches our interest. The Meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” adds more books to my Wish List and To-Be-Read pile every week.
As followers you get our recommendations, win books from us, pick up books at the library or buy them at a store.
But our lives are so busy these books sometimes sit in our To-Be-Read piles for months or even years.
This is the 5th year I am hosting this challenge to
encourage you to read some of those books.
12 books in 12 months.
This group will close to new members on January 31, 2015.
Just start a thread, WITH YOUR NAME AS THE TOPIC OF YOUR ORIGINAL POST.
Select the proper folder using your first initial.
Then copy and paste this:
I am committing to read just one book for fun each month!
All book formats are allowed, printed, audio, e-book
Bloggers:Please grab the button and put it on your blog to show your participation and provide a link back so others can join.
You Must Read One Book For Fun Each Month.
This year there will be no months designated as Catch-Up Months!
If you miss a month it is up to you to catch up. Just designate you are catching up when you list the book and include the date.
You are not required to review these books.
They are to be read JUST FOR FUN. You can review if you wish.
Crossovers to other challenges are not encouraged as these books are to be read Just For Fun without thought to reviews or other challenges. But challenges just as Read-A-Latte or 150+ Reading Challenge are permitted crossovers as you are counting the total of books you are reading throughout the year as JFF books should be included in those totals. The other exception is a Where Are You Reading or location challenge because again you are keeping track of the total of books you read but categorizing them by setting.
I hope you enjoy this challenge and
hope I help you clear at least 12 books from the rising stacks.

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous bookmarks! I have been thinking/planning to get some too. Just need more time to do all I’d like. 🙂
I had one HECK of a time ‘adding’ books this year, so I gave up.
I don’t understand why I could not ADD my books? Any ideas why I couldn’t do it?
ANY help is appreciated for next year!!
