2009 TBR Lite Challenge
I know I said I wasn't going to do the TBR challenge this year, but there's now a TBR Lite Challenge, and being able to read 6 books from my TBR pile, and change the list whenever I want to (option B) definitely appeals to me.
I know I can switch out the list whenever I want, but I figure I might as well start from somewhere, and that somewhere will be the remains of last year's TBR list:
The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break - Steve Sherrill
The Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing - Melissa Banks
The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse - Robert Rankin
Carter Beats the Devil - Glen David Gold
Gonzalez & Daughter Trucking Company - Maria Amparo Escandon
The Yiddish Policeman’s Union – Michael Chabon
The Silver Rose – Susan Carroll
The Hero with a Thousand Faces – Joseph Campbell
Civilzation and the Limpet – Martin Wells
The Botany of Desire – Michael Pollan
The Professor and the Madman – Simon Winchester
If I switch these out, the switched book will either need to come from my current blog TBR list, or my Amazon wishlist (which is all the books available at my library or Paperspine that I've had in a to read list for a very, very long time). And I'll make sure they were TBR in 2007 or earlier. I did enjoy having a reason to pare down the stacks (literal and digital) last year, but it'll be nice to have slightly less pressure to do so.
