The Goal: To finally read 12 books from your “to be read” pile (within 12 months).
1. Each of these 12 books must have been on your bookshelf or “To Be Read” list for AT LEAST one full year. This means the book cannot have a publication date of 1/1/2014 or later. Caveat: Two (2) alternates are allowed, just in case one or two of the books end up in the “can’t get through” pile.
If you are going to participate, make sure to link up by January 15!

Do you buy more books than you can read? Or are you more responsible than me and use the library?
Note: Amazon links are affiliate links. Books linked to Goodreads are available for free or less than a dollar on Amazon. I had to track down Sartoris through a specialized used book dealer, so can’t help you there!
