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?


  • 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.

  1. Happy to have you join this challenge, hope you enjoy the books you pick to read :)

    1. Thank You . I have a good selection on my shelf or on my kindle that I look forward to getting at. Thanks for hosting :)

  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!
