Whoops, I appear to have lost the first two weeks of January.
Having managed to read only 36 books in 2010 I have decided not to buy* any new books in 2011**.
At my current reading speed it will take me approximately ten years to get through my TBR pile. I think I need to make a serious dent in it before buying any more new books.
Obviously this is going to slightly limit how well I do in my series completion challenge but in most cases I have the next three or four books of most series on my TBR pile anyway. (Plus see *). Also it's going to be something of a challenge to stick to not buying books anyway, but I'm determined to give it a go.
* - Of course this doesn't include when I receive book vouchers or receive books as presents. :) (And luckily I won the DIK reading challenge so have a voucher stashed away for when the new Ilona Andrews/Patricia Briggs/Seanan McGuire/other favourite author is released this year).
** If I crack, which I likely will at some point, I'll be honest and post about it. But two weeks into January my intention is to clear as many shelves as possible on my TBR bookcases.
