Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2014

http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/search/label/Mount%20TBR%20Challenge

**See my wrap-up post HERE**

Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2014
Hosted by: Bev @ MY READER'S BLOCK

Guidelines (quoted from the challenge announcement page):
  • Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2014. 
  • You may sign up anytime from now until November 30th, 2014. 
  • Once you choose your challenge level, you are locked in for at least that many books. If you find that you're on a mountain-climbing roll and want to tackle a taller mountain, then you are certainly welcome to upgrade. All books counted for lower mountains may carry over towards the new peak.
  • Books must be owned by you prior to January 1, 2014. 
  • No ARCs (none), no library books. 
  • No rereads. 
  • Audiobooks and E-books may count if they are yours and they are one of your primary sources of backlogged books. 
  • Books may be used to count for other challenges as well. 
  • Feel free to submit your list in advance (as incentive to really get those books taken care of) or to tally them as you climb. 
  • There will be quarterly check-ins and prize drawings! A blog and reviews are not necessary to participate. 
  • There will be a GoodReads group for the challenge, and a site for reviews. 
Levels:
  1. Pike's Peak: Read 12 books from your TBR pile/s
  2. Mount Blanc: Read 24 books from your TBR pile/s
