Reminder: TBR Challenge For July

For those of you participating in the 2012 TBR Challenge, a reminder that your commentary is "due" on Wednesday, July 18

The theme this month is How Did This Get Here? (a book you can't remember how/why you put in your TBR!).

Remember, the themes are completely and totally optional.  I'll be honest, this is a tough one for me since I tend to have a pretty good memory of why a book is in my TBR (even if the only reason is because it was an "impulse buy").  So if you're in the same boat like I am?  Do what I'm doing and treat this as Free Pick Month!  The themes aren't important - reading something that's been lying around neglected is the real goal.

And hey, and it's only July!  It's not too late to sign-up for the challenge and join in on the fun.   If you're interested, or just want to be a snoop, please check out the TBR Challenge 2012 information page.

Oh good, Wendy! I'm having the same problem. I remember where my books come from, and why and when they got there. I was trying to figure out a way to work it in... lol! So, a 'free pick month' sounds awesome to me. :)

Hils: I usually have a decent memory of "why" a book landed in the TBR and "how" (did I buy it new? used? get from a friend?). Now how long it's been sitting there? Not always. I've had stuff marinating in my mountain range for YEARS ::sigh::
