Reminder: TBR Challenge For July

For those of you participating in the 2011 TBR Challenge, a reminder that your commentary is "due" on Wednesday, July 20

This month's theme is Fairy Tales (Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella etc.).  Contemporary, historical, paranormal, it's all good!  Remember, the themes are completely and totally optional.  If mucking around in fairy tale land doesn't interest you, or there's nothing lying around in your TBR that fits, please go off the beaten path.  The themes aren't as important as digging something (anything!) out of your TBR Pile.

It's also not too late to sign-up.  If you are interested in doing so, or just want to learn more about the challenge, please see the information page.

I won't be participating this month. :-( Although John did move out of the ICU yesterday, so some happier news, eh?

*sigh* I could really go for a fairytale now.

Amy: I'm so glad to hear he's out of ICU! That really is a wonderful step in the right direction.

I haven't read a book from this month's theme, but I wanted you to know how motivating this challenge has been for me. I have now read 58 books from my TBR list this year. I'm only counting books that were already on my list as if January 1, 2011. This challenge has "forced" me to go back through my TBR list and either read the books there, or delete them. I deleted a few after realizing I wasn't that interested in reading them. I do have a couple of titles on my list with a fairy tale theme, so hopefully I'll read one or more before August.

Carrie: Wow! That's great! I wish I was doing that well - Lord knows I've got a large enough TBR that I need to do something like that. As it is, I've read one book every month, and have ended up DNF'ing two others.
