The 2014 TBR Pile Challenge

Last year was the first time that I had signed up for a bunch of reading challenges, including the 2013 TBR Pile Challenge. I enjoyed the process of picking the books that would fit into the challenge criteria, because it felt like a natural extension of my normal book selection process.

When it came to reading, things did not turn out so good, mostly because for various resons I effectively stopped reading fiction halfway into the year. My final TBR Pile 2013 tally was 4.5 books read out of 12.

It would be very difficult not to do better this year.
