Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Whittle Down Your Perpetual TBR List

I don't actually own this many books, it just seems like it! Every year my tbr list gets longer and longer, my perpetual lists get short-changed and my personal library becomes more and more like a black hole.

2009 was my first year blogging and I came across three challenges AND decided to host one of my own.

Luckily I didn't add any for the next two years. 2012 brought all the challenges together, along with some new ones, with the hope that some reading could get accomplished.


Let's try this again

1. List your perpetual challenges.
2. pick a book for each challenge to read in 2014. Overlaps are okay.

  1. 100 Best Novels, actually, there are 208 if you use all three lists, - short list
  2. Cardathon - read every Orson Scott Card book ~ here ~
  3. Disney Literature - read the originals ~ here ~
  4. I Read Banned Books - banned and challenged books ~ here ~
  5. Magic Kingdom of Landover by Terry Brooks ~ here ~
  6. One Million Pages Read ~ here ~
  7. Brian Jacques' Redwall ~ here ~
  8. PB&J - Picture Books and Juvenile fiction ~ here ~
  9. John Sandford's Prey series ~ here ~
  10. Welcome to Cedar Cove - a series by Debbie Macomber ~ here ~
  11. not quite perpetual: A Non-fiction Adventure ~ 5-year plan ~ here ~
  12. not quite perpetual: 101 Fantasy Project ~ 10-year plan ~ here ~
