Anyone else hoarding books to start the new Goodreads Reading Challenge in 2019?Anyone else hoarding books to start the new Goodreads Reading Challenge in 2019? Sue #questionnaire
I’ve been hoarding books for about 5 years lol
Nope. I have plenty to read. I’m sure by that time I’ll own more, so I’ll be covered no matter what
I have enough books already to do goodreads challenges for about 5 years (predicting about 30-40 books per year) so I’m not going out of my way to hoard more…lol. But I know it’s going to happen anyway!
No I have so many at home, over 300 in my TBR I’m sure I have enough lol
No, me neither. I have so many already bought or on my “to read” list that I don’t think I’ll ever catch up. That’s okay. ?
No. I already have 3000+ on my TBR
Well, I’ve got about 80 unread books on my shelves, and I’m aiming to cut that down a good bit next year, so I have already made a reading list for the first few months of next year, which will be included in my Goodreads 2019 challenge.
I’m armed and ready cant wait to start my new reading challenge
I’ve just been hoarding books because of who I am as a person. It’s nice that you have a reason though, I admire that.
I am trying NOT to buy any more books – besides the ones i have preordered – until I read all oft he ones I have TBR
I’ve got a measly 90+ on my bookshelves plus however many on my kindle and nook apps so I don’t need anymore. I do need to start thinking about the ones I want to put in my challenge for next year.
I think, and hope I can stick to it, that all I currently have planned to buy is the rest of the books for the series I already have. Which isn’t very many preorders now that I think of it
Thats what I am “trying” to do – just preorder books in a series
I don’t know how well it will work, but we can try
I’m attempting to do this too. I want to read what’s on my shelves, so I’m only planning to buy one book, which is the last in a series. I’m aiming for the rest to either be library books or books from my shelves. I’ve told myself I’m only allowed to buy books I’ve already read and love enough to want to have my own copy of. That should cut down my book buying considerably!
No need to hoard I have plenty lol
I hoard books. Period. ???
@JoAnne right! I don’t need a reason. Lol
@JoAnne me neither. No reason required
I’ve been doing it for years…
I’ve enabled @Dodi, by selling her books through eBay. 🙂
I’ve been hoarding books for years! Challenge or no challenge. LOL
I just heard about the good read challenges! I’ve been missing out! I have 12 on the way from book outlet, that will give me a good start!
There are groups on Goodreads that do challenges as well. Some of them are really interesting and fun.
@Katie really? I’ll have to check it out! Thank you!
You’re welcome. I think if you search reading challenges, you should find some good groups 🙂
Yep I’ve got about 30 or so put aside for next year.
No. I never lack for something to try. They just aren’t always great choices! But you must try…
I am just a book hoarder in general! LOL
We hoarding long time
Wait, isn’t it not hoarding if it’s books?
Yep, that’s the rule: not hoarding if it’s books. Everyone knows that! 😀
Someone tell my husband that?!? ?
Yeah i alreafy started my pile since I’m done this year’s
? yep.. totally failed my challenge this year… so I’m already stockpiling for the next.
@Tracy me too!
1 more book to finish out this year but I am reading all the way until then
I’m going to go though my nook app/kindle app and finally get to all the books I haven’t gotten to yet. There’s at a lot.
I wish we all lived closer because I hoard books just for the sheer hell of it and would be happy to lend them. My nieces read voraciously; that’s my only comfort
ThriftBooks has 20% off 20.00 spent for Cyber Monday free shipping
http://bookoutlet.com/ has an amazing Black Friday sale still going on now too
Cuz books are life. I’ve had book buying withdrawals where all I can think about is why didn’t I grab these when I went to buy stuff. And I’ll obsess until I get them.
The last 5 books I read before the challenge came out would have been perfect…..so annoyed!!!! ?
Why not add them to it since you read them?
@Kurio Because I didn’t read them in 2019. I would feel like I was cheating ?
Fair enough. I’ve read so many over the years, just trying to add them all to Goodreads is a challenge. I haven’t written a review for any of them. I plan to when I go back and reread them. Was never sure how to classify them, seeing as it’s been over the course of 8 years
Me!!!! I have 16 more books on the way from the black Friday sale at Book Outlet ???
Only 16? I usually don’t go til I hit at least 30
I know right! It was actually my smallest order from there. But I asked for a gift card for Christmas from there so I will be back! ?
I always shoot for the free shipping and they always have stuff I want. When that box shows it’s like Christmas day all over again
I hoard books anyway…
I may or may not have 60 books lined up ?
You mean.. on top of the 1500 that are waiting their turn? ?
Yes…I’m somewhat ashamed of how little I’ve read this year
@Charon oh don’t be! No moral clause here.
Nope! I just hoard books anyway ???
My girlfriend hoards books!! I’m guilty of it too.
I’m always hoarding books. But I’m not participating in the challenge next year ?
I won’t make my goodreads goal this year ? read only 85/100 so far
@Sharon it’s ok, that’s still a lot of books.
Unable to.. My parents are not letting my buy books?
@Alison they say it’s foolish for anyone to read so much..
However the real reason the never told me
@Animesh THAT IS TRAGIC.
@Alison yes.. ?
I started yesterday ? returned all my books in my kindle that I’ve read today I’ll buy/download more
I’ve got a bunch of ARCs I need to catch up on. My goal is not to borrow any books from the library, except audio until I’m caught up on those.
Advanced Reader Copy. I get the books before they are published, but right now I’m at books published in June of this year.
@Lorrea that sounds great
I use my library ALOT. 575 is a pretty lofty goal! ?I thought I was doing well surpassing my 125 goal by reading 186!
I have loads of books to read,so perhaps I should set myself a challenge.
400+ are children’s books that were read aloud to my family.
@Michele on regular books you still surpass me. ?
