Adam's 2014 TBR Pile Challenge




Adam from Roof Beam Reader is taking us on another round of TBR Tower Taming with his 2014 TBR Pile Challenge. I finished up my 2013 pile back in August, so I've been waiting oh-so-impatiently to sign up for the 2014 challenge.  I love challenges and I'm all about the ones that will help me knock out some of those stacks in my back room.



Here's the main point: If you join Adam's challenge, then you will sign up to read 12 books (one for each month) from your TBR list. Each of these books must have been on your TBR list for AT LEAST one year. None of the books can have a publication date of 1/1/13 or later (yes, Adam will be checking).

For the full run-down of challenge details, hop over to Adam's blog (click on link above), read the rules, and join me in my quest to reduce the teetering stacks.

Here's my list:
1. The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick (pub 1962) [2/27/14]
2. For Old Crime's Sake by Delano Ames (pub 1959) [4/29/14]
3. My Antonia by Willa Cather (pub 1918) [4/20/14]
4. Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis (pub 1952) [7/20/14]

8. Plain Sailing by Douglas Clark (pub 1987) [6/11/14]

11. The Clue of the Leather Noose by Donald Bayne Hobart (pub 1929) [3/31/14]
12. The Forgotten War by William Forschten (pub 1999) [7/9/14]

Good luck with your challenge.

My Antonia didn't make the cut for my list this year - maybe 2015?!!
