Ok guys, so I have a huge habit of buying books that I completely and totally intend to read, and then just having them sit on my shelf forever, because there are JUST SO MANY GOOD BOOKS OUT THERE!  Enter the Show Your Shelves Some Love, No Book Buying Challenge 2015!!

Hosts: Terri from Second Run Reviews and the lovely people from Chapter Break!
Social Media: #ShelfLove

The goal of this challenge is simple — for one year abstain from buying books (or set a monthly book budget) — and focus on clearing physical and virtual to-be-read book shelves. This challenge begins Jan 1, 2015 and ends Dec 31, 2015.


I am both excited and dismayed to start this challenge.  I’m super excited because I really DO want to read the books I have, but not buying books!?!?! FOR A WHOLE YEAR!?!?!? Yikes!  I am going to do my best to stay on track with this though.  I shall miss you Half Price Books! My shelves are really starting to overflow though.


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 (Rose!!!)

  • Encourage other challenge participants via comments, social media and emails.

  • Participate in the monthly posts. (The link up post will go live on the first of each month and be open for 30 days.)

  • 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!

I am going to aim for the Purple Belt  —->31-40 books: (regular date night with your shelves) goal.
