Operation: TBR Reduction

Operation TBR Reduction Button

I just discovered this personal challenge started by Stephanie at Once Upon a Chapter via Fetch Me My Fainting Couch.

Since I was not aware of it prior to May 1, I'll officially begin my own efforts on July 1. If you've seen any of my multiple posts about Book Hoarding and Cleaning Out, you know I can really use this.

The rules, per Stephanie, are as follows:

*Read more books than I bring in per month. No excuses, no justifications, no wheedling. Just reading. *ALL books (with the exception of library books, they’ll just cancel themselves out) count towards my numbers. This includes review requests, trades, purchases, etc., etc.

EDITED: *Re-reading keepers doesn't count since they won't be leaving the house.

Wish me luck!


  1. Lots of Luck! I am moving soon so I really need to do this too! Books are heavy! I started a couple of months ago and am seeing a dent!

  2. I had about 4 or 5 moves in the last 5 years. Each time I had more and more boxes of books. The first time was about 20, so you can imagine how bad it was by the last move.

  3. Best of luck to you! So far this week I sent nothing out but also brought nothing new in so it's a wash. But the week is not over yet . . .

  4. All I needed was to read "Read more books than I bring in per month." No way! I get bunches of free ebooks for my Kindle and I hoard those babies like a squirrel who knows a harsh winter is on its way. My belief is that one day, the free books will disappear. When it does, I'll be set for

  5. lol. Most of my books coming in are print, so I have space and organization issues that this challenge will hopefully help with.

  6. Today's the day I officially start!

  7. Good luck! I'm so glad that you decided to join us!
