23for2023 Books

by Samy

The goal of #23for2023 Books is to read 23 pre-decided books for 2023. It is also up for Video Games and Movies.
It was originally invented by Zeit für neue Genres, a German website.

Your TBR needs a detox!

In 2023, it’s also time to rejuvenate the TBR so that it stays or becomes fresh and crisp. That’s why I’ve decided to continue this challenge. It’s about rejuvenating the stack of unread books – may the TBR seniors get their reading time!

Roughly speaking, the aim for 2023 is to get rid of the 10 oldest books from the TBR.

What do you have to do?

Make a list of the 10 books that have been on your TBR the longest and read one of them every month. Two vacation months are planned so that your list can come to rest in due course.

The rules:

  • This challenge is not a competition.
  • Books that are discarded unread do not count as read. However, abandoned books do. In this case, however, the next book from the TBR moves up. Therefore, the 10 oldest TBR titles must be read to complete the challenge.
  • You can join at any time.
  • Audiobooks, eBooks, and print books all count. The main thing is that the story is freed from the TBR, and the nice pile of unread books has become a little younger overall.

Challenge period: January 01, 2023 to December 31, 2023
