Challenge: Clear Off Your Shelves

Here's a challenge that's easy to do. It's the Clear Off Your Shelves Challenge hosted by Swapna over at S. Krishna's Books. The idea is to read (1) review books that have been in your house for more than six months and/or (2) non-review books. Library books don't count for this challenge because the idea is to clear off your shelves!

I am committing to 25%, which means that a quarter of the books I read in October and November will count for this challenge. I'd go higher, but I need to leave room for library books and for Echo in the Bones by Diana Gabaldon (likely very long).

Note that Swapna cleverly scheduled this challenge to overlap with the October read-a-thon. If you want to join the challenge, read the full rules on the challenge post.

I will not be joining the challenge but am fully aware I NEED to clear my shelves. It's getting waaaaaaaay out of control. LOL!

I'm doing this one too. Maybe we can motivate each other!

I'm in too! Although I chickened out and signed up for the minimum! If I do better, I'll feel really proud of myself!

Yay, I'm doing this too. I'm *hoping* to make every 3rd book I read one that qualifies.

Yay! I'm doing this one too. Good luck. Having a Gabaldon book in your plans defintely skews the numbers.

This is insanely funny but for some reason it never dawned on me to pick a percentage that never ended in a 0!

I'm avoiding this challenge because the math is too much for my brain to handle. :-D

Good luck! And thank you for reminding me that I still need to officially sign up :P

This challenge sounds good but I'll not be joining either cos I still have other challenges to complete! :D But yeah, I have a Mt. Everest size of TBR books that need to be cleared too. Slowly but surely.

Good luck with the challenge, Beth. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun.
