If your library, or piles of books, or rooms of books, looks overwhelming, take time to organize, if even in your mind, how you can lessen both the visual clutter, but also the mental clutter of owning so many books that remain unread.
There are tons of reading challenges to meet your interests, your ability to read just a few or hundreds, reading harder, reading to others, authors of color, or anything else you can imagine. I have personally joined a few and achieved some. I like Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge, which encourages you to stretch to different genres than what you will likely read. As of this posting, I have read 258 books and completed Read Harder and Goodreads book challenge of reading 80 books. I still haven't finished one that requires a book of fantasy to be read. I just don't read fantasy, even after picking up a few books at the library. Couldn't do it. Next year, I will . join in a few more.
There is a group on Goodreads which addresses this. You pick and commit to a certain number of books and keep track of these as you read them.
Pike's Peak: Read 12 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Blanc: Read 24 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Vancouver: Read 36 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Ararat: Read 48 books from your TBR piles/s
Mt. Kilimanjaro: Read 60 books from your TBR pile/s
El Toro: Read 75 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Everest: Read 100 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Olympus : Read 150+ books from your TBR pile/s
Personally, I will be challenging myself to Mt Kilimanjaro and then donating the book to my local library for their book sales. When you post anywhere, such as Goodreads, Litsy, or LibraryThing, use the hashtag, #MountTBR so you can keep track and other will see your accomplishment. I will read 60 books in 2019, which should be pretty easily accomplished. How about you????
