I’m doing it again. I’m signing up for the Mount TBR 2016 Reading Challenge.
I sign up every year, choose an ambitious pile of dusty books from my To Be Read shelves, and then…read different books. Last year I didn’t commit myself to read a specific list of books, just to read a number of books that have been sitting on my shelves for a year or more. What happened? I read that number of books, yes, but they were all new books, so they didn’t count.
Three Mount TBR sign-ups—2013, 2014, 2015—followed by three failures, and I’m signing up again.
Psychiatrists call this “masochism.”
