The purpose of this challenge is to help clear out some (or many) of those books taking up space on our eReaders. You know them, the books you added because they were free, really cheap, quite pretty or just seemed a bit interesting. Now you’ve got to decide if you’re really gonna keep and read them!
I’m doing this clean up for myself, but I’d love if anyone wanted to join in and clear out their eReaders too. We can encourage one another, if you’d like to join in.
There is no time limit on this challenge. I guess, maybe it’s more like a meme. You can start anytime you’d like (or stop) and post whenever you feel like. Here are some guidelines:
- Make a list of the books on your kindle/ e-reader under consideration.
- Select the first 3 or 4 (or more depending on your mood).
- Read the blurbs of the books.
- Decide if you’re going to keep and read; or discard from the TBR.
- Announce your verdict.
- The next time you’re ready to post, continue from where you left off on your list.
If you’d like to create a little community spirit to build up encouragement to really get this list sorted, join in!
- Write a post saying you’re taking part in this challenge/ meme.
- Tag me in your post so I can include you in my challenge update posts.
- If on Twitter, use the hashtags #kindlebookaddiction #KindleKleanUp and tag me @ninad_silva so I can find you and your post to retweet.
- Post as often or as infrequently as you wish!
- I’ll try to do update posts every first and third week of the month and include links to anyone who’s joined in.
- You can use my challenge images, if you want to.
