This weekend I am participating in a 24 Hour Take Control TBR Pile Read-A-Thon, hosted by the blog Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Since the beginning of the year, I have dubbed my TBR pile The Great and Powerful TBR Pile and dedicated myself to getting this book pile read and dealt with (keeper shelf, delete, give away). This is harder than it sounds, as I am constantly distracted by new releases and trying to keep up with different series by my favorite authors (yes, I am talking about you ...In Death by J.D. Robb and your 40+ books).
Since I start my day five hours before the East Coast, I don't know if I will participate in those challenges due to time limits. I am aiming for five books completed by the end of the read-a-thon, all coming from my March reading list. I got distracted this month and am currently running behind schedule on some of my personal reading goals for the year, so I may focus more on fiction to bring me back on track. Hopefully, by the end of the read-a-thon I will have Courtney Milan's Carhart Series complete (two books left) and perhaps a jump start on Milan's Brothers Sinister series underway.
