The Backlist Reader Challenge 2019

The Backlist Reader Challenge (#BacklistReader) is hosted by Lark @ The Bookwyrm’s Hoard. Visit her blog to sign-up and read more about this challenge.

I’m signing up for this challenge to help me read my older books. The great thing about this challenge is that it includes not just the books I already own, but all the books (published before 2018) on my list I’ve wanted to read.

My Goals

  • Read 25 books from my TBR list
  • Write reviews for the books and then link them to Lark’s blog

I will put a page on my blog to keep this challenge updated:

  • My goals
  • My TBR List–I have several TBR lists on OneNote so I have to combine them, take out the books I’ve read and make sure none of the books were published in 2018.
  • A list of the books as I read them and links to my reviews once I get them reviewed.

Have you decided to do any challenges this year?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I just joined this Challenge for this year recently. I have to finish work on my page for it. I did list the books I was going to choose from for this quarter (I’m adding different books for each season, lol). Glad to have you aboard also. I need to save money this year by borrowing more books or reading the cheap paperbacks I get at the used book store.


    1. Yes, I have to save money, too, Rita. Reading books I already have or can find at the library is one way I’m trying to do that!


  2. I have decided to do about 5, not counting small ones and my Puppy Love one I host. I would have liked to do this one and probably could have, but I do a monthly feature where I read and review one backlist book a month so I’m kinda “unofficially” doing it without joining. Good luck!


      1. Jan, my sign up post will go up Sunday. It’s only for the month of February so I don’t put it up too early. It’s easy though. Just read any dog (or cat) title and link your review and then you’re in the drawing for a $10.00 gift card.

        Glad you are joining!


  3. I also need to sign up for this one – I track and make a point of reading and reviewing the books – I’m just rubbish at returning and sharing the fact that I’ve done it!
