I finally found a way to sort out my TBR pile! The YA Book Club group in Goodreads posted a reading challenge:
A-Z Reading Challenge
Duration: June 1, 2011 – December 31, 2011.
You can read in any order you wish.
Although we are a YA Book Club, for this challenge, if you wish, you can read adult books as well, as long as at least 50% of the books read are young adult.
You have 7 months to read 26 books.
Either the first word in the title of the books or the author’s name (first or last) should correspond with a letter in the alphabet.
You should omit “a” and “the” in the titles.
Letters Q, X and Z can be positioned anywhere in the titles or author names.
Amidst my mounting TBR pile (ebooks, mostly), this serve as the solution i’m looking for. All i need to do is come up with a list, and OC as i am, i will cross them all out after reading.
Now, not only did i came up with a list, i made two! by title, AND by author. Yeah, yeah. i’m OC overload. so what!
