To Be Read Challenge

To Be Read Challenge

What: "Pick 12 books – one for each month of the year - that you’ve been wanting to read (that have been on your “To Be Read” list) for 6 months or longer, but haven’t gotten around to."
When: Year 2011
Why: Because it isn't very often that I actually look at my TBR-list before going to the library, and so I don't often read books from my list, although I want to.
My Goal: To read 12 books, from the original list or the alternative list, that doesn't matter.
Reviews: I don't think there'll be any here.
Prize: When I finish this, I'll take an evening off from my studies and everything and watch a movie from my "to be watched" -list, eating popcorn or candy.
List: I'm not sure if all of these have been on the list for 6 months, but I didn't add any after hearing about this challenge and that's good enough for me. And I can read the books also in Finnish, if I feel like it.
