If you are like me, you have accumulated a lot of books in the first 11 months of 2011. You may even have a pile of books to review that are screaming for your attention, when you’re already swimming in titles to read. In other words: Feel like your to-be-read pile is getting out of hand? Feel like you need to make room for new books in 2012? Join me and Get Read-y for 2012!
What is “Get read-y for 2012”?
It’s simple: December is the last month of 2011 and we are using it to read away our TBR pile. If you are like me, you have a big pile of books you need to read, and a lot of 2012 books on your wishlist. The Plan is to get all other (review) books out of the way so there’s room for new titles.
We’re working with an ‘honor system’ here, so nobody will shout at you/slap you/steal your chocolate if you don’t make your goal. But we will of course award you with cyber glitter and narwhals when you make it!
There will be a so called check-in every week on Wednesday, so you can tell us how you are coming along with the reading. At the end of December there will be a final check-in where you can tell if you made it to your goal and if you feel like you’ve made a dint in that to-read pile.
How do I join?
Want to join me in getting Read-y? It’s simple: just enter your name in the Mr Linky at the bottom of the post and if you want, leave me a comment telling me how many books or what specific titles you want to read in December. You don’t have to list the books you want to read – just fill it in however you want! The point is to read so that’s the main priority. It’s not about who read the most books – it’s about getting reading done so we can focus on the new year!
What do I gain from joining?
Besides a nice small stack of books left in your TBR, I will be giving away one January release to one of the participants in Get Read-y, to motivate you to get the reading done!(this is slightly counter productive, I know).
Get read-y lasts for the full month of December, meaning you have from December 1st til December 31st to get your reading done. Remember that you need to be a participant to be able to win the January release prize!
Feel free to grab the button and spread the word – the more the merrier! (Please save the button on your computer and upload it yourself!)
Enough talking! feel like joining? Enter your name in the Mr Linky now, leave me a comment (feel free to post a list of what you plan to read!), and get reading! We can do this!
