Off the Shelf Challenge 2011

**Challenge completed.**

Dates: 1 January - 31 December 2011
Hosted by: Bookish Ardour

Guidelines:
"This challenge is to read those books you own copies of, but have never got around to reading. If you don't have many that you own, but have a massive TBR shelf you're welcome to read those ones as long as you don't add new ones. You don't need to actually get rid of your books after you've read them, this is just to read them." (quoted from the challenge blog)

Challenge Levels:
  1. Tempted– Choose 5 books to read
  2. Trying – Choose 15 books to read
  3. Making A Dint – Choose 30 books to read
  4. On A Roll – Choose 50 books to read
  5. Flying Off – Choose 75 books to read
For extra hard challenges:
  1. Hoarder – Choose 76-125 books to read
  2. Buried – Choose 126-200 books to read

✸ I signed up at the 15 book level ("Trying"), and ended up actually reading 20 books from my TBR "shelf."
