2012 TBR PILE Reading Challenge - SIGN UPS


Welcome to 2012 TBR PILE Reading Challenge!!!

We all have those books. We buy them, win them, they're gifted to us.. Then we put them up on a bookshelf and there they stay, collecting dust, waiting for the time when we'll finally decide to pick them up..

Join us on a quest to dust off your TBR Pile and read all the books you've been telling yourself you'll read next time you'll get a chance.. This is your chance! And we've got PRIZES!!! :D

Challenge guidelines: 

  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2012 - Dec 31, 2012.
  2. As we would like to see quality reviews linked up to our monthly wrap-ups, only bloggers can enter. Sorry about that!
  3. Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that's been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Only books released in 2011 and earlier! NO ARCs and 2012 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
  4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.
  5. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2012 TBR PILE Reading Challenge (You need to include the info + host list + challenge button. You can also grab the button code and add it to your sidebar!)
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2012, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
  8. At the end of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will have it's unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this month. For each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It's open to INTERNATIONALS. For participating in the mini-challenge you will get +1 entry.
  9. If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice - we will be checking ;)
  10. December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you'll link up in December will be entered into a HUGE giveaway - 12 books, 12 winners, INTERNATIONAL. 
  11. You don't have to follow all the hosts to join the challenge, but you do have to follow all of us to be entered in giveaways!

I love this Challenge. There already are two other TBR Challenges, but this one seems to be the one with the most.. um.. thought behind it? I'm not sure how to explain it, but I love the idea about the mini Challenges and different hosts etc! : )

Especially because I didn't know some of the hosts.

Thanks for hosting the challenge! <3

Evie said...

I'm so, SOOOOO happy to hear that you like our challenge :) Hope you'll enjoy all the challenges and themes! Have plenty of fun reading and don't forget to visit the monthly wrap-up post host to link up your reviews - this way you can win more awesome books for your reading pleasure!:D

HUGS!!! <3

It says no ARC's, I have a book published in 2010, and it's ARC form can I use that since it was published before 2011 or no because it's in ARC form?

Chrystal said...

What an amazing challenge idea. I wasn't going to participate in many challenges this coming year and just focus on reading everything I can, but this challenge seems to work with that plan. :) Great idea ladies! I'll be signing up shortly... just need to create my list and a blog post to link back. :)

Evie said...

@Moirae - Sure, you could totally read an ARC from 2011 and earlier - no problem with that at all. What I meant was 2012&13 ARCs - these won't count! :)

Thank you for joining!!! <3

@Chrystal - So happy you decided to join! I have the same problem -way too many books in my TBR pile that should finally be picked up! Looking forward to seeing your reviews, thanks for joining! <3

Excellent challenge! I'm always up for a good one.

(And I just realized that I linked up with just my blog address, not my post about joining. Gah! I'll get that written up ASAP.)

Andra Lyn said...

Fantastic! This is just the excuse I need to finally make myself dive into the TBR pile! Wonderful idea!

Bookluvr Mindy said...

Sounds like fun...only I have WAY too many ARC's that are on my book pile and I'm worried that it will only grow. I may come back to join.

FreedomInk Publishing said...

Thanks for the extension of this invitation. I welcome the challenge.

Lindsay said...

What is hysterical is that about half of the books in the picture are literally in my TBR pile. That picture was made for me :)

This sounds awesome and I think I'm going to do it even though I swore I wouldn't get into challenges for next year! LOL :D

Definitely joining this challenge! (when I get home & can make a page for it on the blog to link up) :)
I need to tackle my bookshelf so bad. This is a great idea and I love the mini challenges/themes :)

Jessi said...

This is such a great challenge idea. And I am so glad I found your blog. I also need to read the Iron Fey series and Paranormalcy. I'm following now. :)

Bookworm Lisa said...

Evie, I plan to sign up. Life is a bit crazy for me at the moment. I just started a new job and I am adjusting to a new schedule. I will have a post within the next week or so and then I'll put in a link. :0)

Unknown said...

This totally ounds like fun! I'm not sure if I signed up twice though? I checked the list and didn't see my name (Amanda Marie @BookLove101)

Other than that... Can' wait to start!

Nichole said...

I have been searching for a good challenge for next year and this is PERFECT!! I cannot WAIT to get started. I have books upon books upon books in my TBR and I need to start shortening it. Thanks for having this, it's perfect!
I did have a question though. I am somewhat new to the blogging world and I feel silly asking this but I honestly don't understand it... I don't understand the levels. Do they signify how many books or a type of book or how many chapters?? I feel confused but I feel like it's a simple thing that I'm just not grasping.

Once I have a bit more time to make a blog post and figure out books I will be signing up!! CAN'T WAIT!

Anonymous said...

Hmm, I am thinking of doing this. It looks fabulous!! And I just have to say I only now found your blog...LOVE it!

Val said...

This is a perfect challenge for me! I really need to get caught up on some of those books in my TBR pile. Thanks for sponsoring it!


Unknown said...

Evie can you pls delete my signup "Angelica" as I put the wrong link. I'll signup when I've got the correct link.

Unknown said...

Oh wow! I really LOVE the idea behind this challenge, it's going to be so much fun and pretty much a challenge in itself! ;)

Great challenge! I'm all signed up and raring to go! :D

Crini said...

Great Challenge!
I read english books but I write german reviews/have a german blog.
If that's okay for you I would love to participate!

Jez said...

Thanks for the challenge! I have many TBRs on my shelf*gasp* and this is the thing to keep me going.

Rachel said...

Sounds awesome--I'm totally in!

Evie do the books have to be ones actually sitting on your shelf and that you've bought already or can they be books that you buy DURING the year/challange that are released before 2011?

Thanks :)
