TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR TBR PILE - HOSTED BY CAFFEINATED BOOK REVIEWER


I am excited to participate in Take Control of your TBR Pile hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer  for the first time.  I adore her blog and am always looking for reasons to read my TBR pile.  Seems silly, right?  Well with reviews I feel like I must complete those first before reading for "fun".  Does that make sense???  I do much better with that when I enter a challenge!  

Here are the rules from Kimba's blog:

~*~*Rules*~*~

  • Link-up! This is open to everyone. If you do not have a blog then link your Facebook or Goodreads account.
  • Make a Goals/updates/Results post (can be combined) On Goodreads create a folder for Take Control and share your intentions on your wall.
  • Begins March 1st, 2015 and ends March 31, 2015 at midnight.
  • Read/listen to books from your TBR pile .
  • ALL books must have been published before March 2015.
  • Post a review to Goodreads, your blog or Facebook then link it to the Rafflecopter for an entry. (mini review)
  • You can combine events, challenges etc.
  • No novellas for this one peeps
  • The rafflecopter will only allow you to enter up to two books daily, so update as soon as you finish a book.
  • Earn an extra entry for adding Take Control Button to your blog, or facebook (with link-back)

  • Twitter Party and read-a-thon will be announced to help you reach your goals.

Prize: New 2015 release valued at up to $20.00. I will do pre-orders as well. (may request eBook or Audible audio copy)
=================================================================================

I only have 2 reviews set up for March so far, so I will be able to devote almost a whole month to my TBR pile.  YAY.  I am so excited for this challenge :).

I wish I had fantastic goals in mind, but I don't.  I just want to be able to read as many books as possible in March.  I will update as much as I can, and plan to visit other participating blogs during this time also.  I love being introduced to new blogs :).    Good luck to all of you who are participating.  I look forward to seeing your updates.
