2017 Read the Books You Buy Challenge

The idea behind this is to read the books you buy. I have a tendency to buy books as retail therapy when I have a huge shelf of books that are full of unread books. I’m not so much going to keep buying at the same rate. Instead I’m planning to use this idea to buy a little less this year. I’ll only buy books I have immediate plans to read. I’m shooting for the Mission Accomplished goal, which is between 81-100%. If I can read 81% of the books I purchase, I’ll be a happy girl. Learn more about the challenge at The Book Date.

I set the goal in the overview below for 1 book since I haven’t bought anything yet. I’ll update the goal as I buy books and once I’ve read and reviewed a book, it will show up on the “Finished Books” list and the progress on my challenge will change to reflect that.
