Over at Ready When You Are, C.B., James is once again daring (actually, double daring) us to read only books in our To Be Read (TBR) stack from January 1, 2012 through April 1, 2012.
According to James, the TBR Double Dare is not a book buying ban. We can still buy books during the double dare, we just can’t read them until April 1, 2012. The official stance on library books is that we can only read those in our possession or on our holds list at 12:00 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2012. Of course, we are free to set our own rules if we like. If we know we have a book club book coming up, or that a certain author has a book coming out, we can allow for exceptions. It’s all for fun.
But I say NO … it is NOT for fun. I MUST clear out my shelves to make room for new books. It is ridiculous that I have at least 6 or 7 shelves of unread books. So, I hereby solemnly swear to read only the books on my bookshelves from January 1 until April 1. No exceptions!! Mr. Jenners will be so happy … until he realizes this is just a way to justify the purchase of even more books! Insert evil laugh here.
