This is another highly interesting Reading Challenge I joined two years ago.
I don't think Evie from the Bookish Blog still carries this on, as I can't find it on her page but her words with which she started this challenge are still true: "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."
After two years of participation, my TBR (To Be Read) pile is still a lot longer than it should because I just can't resist buying any new books and going to the library but I have tried to attempt reading more old books than buying new ones.
I could, of course, try to tackle the 50+ challenge but we all know that is not going to happen, instead, I try to do at least 11-20 old books in addition to the new ones I'm buying and those I get from the library and hopefully be pleasantly surprised at the end of the year.
I have read
37 books in 2016 of the books that had been waiting to be read for more than a year and
32 old books in 2017. Yes, I have reached the 11-20 but I'm not all that happy with my overall result. Must do better next year. ;)
So far, I have already read these of my "old books" in 2017:
