#Shelflove Challenge 2017

I am joining the ShelfLove Challenge this year for the second time. It is hosted by Second Run Reviews and Chapter Break. Go on over there to get the full deets.

My actual TBR grew over the year - it usually does especially when I go to the yearly book fair. I am beginning to get a handle on my Kindle books by my own Read the Books You Buy reading challenge, and those that escaped me are being sucked up by the Homework Reading Assignment Challenge. (Although I do have some in the dark regions of my Kindle). However I need a TBR challenge and this is the one that I like the most.  

In 2016 I got lost with the check ins and discussion posts, but with only four for 2017 that will work far better for me. I'll even put them in my calendar!

  1. You have your books under control ^__^. I have two bookshelves created for 2017. I'm going to try to pick from them first. What an interesting tidbit about possum! Are they protected b/c their numbers are down or because they've been killed so many times? I love, love the possum mix yarn I'm knitting. I froggged what little was knitted and then started over with another sock pattern I own. I love the fabric.

    1. Stefanie possums are killed with no compunction and complete abandon here in NZ because of their pest factor. I am not sure about the Australian story but I know they don't multiply like they do here. Our climate or something must be too perfect for them. Plus they have no predators here where in Aussie I think there are.

  2. Darn those yearly book festivals! I have the LA Times Festival of Books coming up in April. I really hope I don't buy too many books.

    Good luck with the challenge!

  3. My books are no where near under control. :-) But this sounds like fun and good idea to calendar the discussion posts. Good luck with the challenge.

  4. Welcome to Shelf Love :) 15 books sounds good :)
