50 Book Pledge 2013

50 Book Pledge 2013

Image links to challenge page

Technically, this is my 156 Book Pledge. Last year I actually did join and complete the 50 Book Pledge, because I vowed to count only the books that I read off my own shelves for this challenge.

And, it was truly a challenge for me. I just made the 50, even though I read 240 (or 247) books (depending whether my spreadsheet or my GoodReads tally is correct) in total.

This year, I am still trying to read more books from my own shelves, but it’s too time-consuming to track the books separately throughout the year, so I’m making the goal the same and lifting the restriction.

HarperCollins has done a good bit of work towards making this even more fun, by adding badges and a virtual bookshelf.

You can join here. And you can see my bookshelf here. I haven’t added my TBR books yet. That’s a truly daunting task.

How about you: have you taken the pledge?
