I am doing a premier with this challenge. For the first time, I will participate in the Take Control TBR Challenge during March hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. She is hosting her Fifth annual Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge – Congrats!

When I first saw her logo announcing this challenge I thought - no looked - at my huge TBR, sighed, and wasn´t sure if I should sign-up or not.
Yes, such a challenge is the right thing to get some of the books off that TBR by reading them. But March is usually a busy month for me when it comes to that and I have at the same time a reading challenge in another forum going on. So I am really curious to see how this challenge will work out for me and how many books I will get done during the month of March.
I will have to see if I am able to attend the Twitter Party since I am over in Europe and doing something in the middle of the night isn´t always as fun as it sounds. And if I can do the 24-hour read-a-thon is another thing I am not sure about. I hope that won´t disqualify me for this challenge.

  • Link-up! This is open to everyone. If you do not have a blog then link your Goodreads account. It is a good idea to friend Kimberly if your shelf is private.
  • Create a Goals/Update/Results post (can be combined). It can also be a shelf on Goodreads. Be sure to friend Kimberly so she can see it.
  • Challenge starts midnight March 1, 2017, and ends March 31, 2017, at 11:59 pm.
  • Read/listen to books from your TBR pile.
  • ALL books/audios must have been published before March 1, 2017. Kimberly doesn´t care where you got them, so old ARC´s count too.
  • Post a review to Goodreads, or your blog then link it to the Rafflecopter for an entry. (These can be mini review)
  • You can combine events, challenges etc.
  • No novellas for this one. Page count must be over 100 pages to qualify.
  • The rafflecopter will only allow you to enter up to two books daily, so update as soon as you finish a book.
  • Use hashtag #TakeControlTBR
  • Twitter Party March 15, 2017, at 7 pm (CST) The Ides of March. Come chat about books you have read and win prizes.
  • 24-hour TBR read-a-thon-Saturday, March 18 (sign-up will be posted in February). Grab your snacks, snuggle up and read until you drop! Instagram challenges and more.
  • Earn extra entries for participating in the Twitter Party and 24-hour TBR read-a-thon.
  • Rafflecopter will close on April 2, 2017, at midnight and a winner will be chosen within 72 hours. Open internationally as long as Book Depository ships to you. Prize: New 2016 release valued at up to 20 US dollars. Kimberly will do pre-orders as well (her request eBook copy from Amazon or B& N)

Most of the drill is familiar. Grab the image from Caffeinated Book Reviewer and share the event. Don´t forget to link back to the sign-up post over at her blog so friends can join in.

Okay, enough of the talking. Let´s have some fun here.

Happy reading to all of us!
