No Book Buying Challenge 2015

Hosted @Chapter Break and Second Run Reviews

"I have a lot of kindle books that I need to read. Surely that will keep me busy for at least a year"

My reading goal for 2015 is set to 24 books. In comparison to the lot of you, that is an incomparably LAX number. This year I wanted to only read one book a month, but instead I doubled that to 24. However, that number may change depending on how I do with my kindle reading.

For this challenge, library books are not allowed , but seeings how library books are budget friendly, I will also be participating in the 2015 snagged @ the library challenge

In the last few years , my experience with reading was more of a personal challenge than it was an enjoyment but I rather prefer reading slower and sometimes if I have to, read it over again. In other words I want to take my time. It was about how many books I could read in a year. I have changed and therefore my New Years resolution will be to ONLY READ BOOKS THAT I LIKE, not to be swayed by Goodreads reviews.

Everytime I am persuaded to read a book that is against my better judgment , I end up being terribly disappointed and I wonder are they reading the same book?

HERE ARE THE GUIDELINES


  • Abstain from spending money on books for one calendar year (or follow a monthly   book budget). 
  • Gift cards OK, audible account OK, but no buying extra credits 
  • Encourage other challenge participants via comments, social media and emails. 
  • Participate in the monthly posts. 
  • Library books do not count for this challenge. This challenge is mainly for books you already own. 
  • Netgalley books can count for this because you have the book, so read it!



This challenge begins Jan 1, 2015 and ends Dec 31, 2015.

  2. I would fail horribly at this challenge, so there's no point in me signing-up other than possibly feeling bad when I cave 2 days later. LOL! I had the worst time sticking to my December buying ban let alone 12 months. You are a braver soul than I. Best of luck with your goals!
