Off the Shelf Challenge 2012

Hosted by: Bookish Ardour
Dates: 1 January - 31 December, 2012

See the announcement/sign-up page here, for guidelines. I'll be signing up at level two again this year ("Trying" -- 15 books), but hope to read a few more than that.

I have a ridiculously huge number of books on my TBR shelves/lists, so there's a lot to choose from (some of them are listed on my GoodReads "To-Read" shelf). Haven't made up my mind about which ones I'll read this year, but these are a few I'm considering:
  • Afternoon Men. Anthony Powell
  • Buddenbrooks. Thomas Mann
  • Death of a Hollow Man. Caroline Graham
  • The Inn at Lake Devine. Elinor Lipman
  • Jane Eyre. Charlotte Bronte
  • Los Alamos. Joseph Kanon
  • The Moonstone. Wilkie Collins
  • The Sign of the Book. John Dunning
During the year, I'll be tracking my progress on my challenge blog here.


  1. Have fun with these, Joy! Off the shelf is one challenge I really want to tackle. It's ridiculous how many books around here have gone unread. Wishing you a happy and healthy new year.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
