Scaling Mt TBR

So I needed a reading challenge for the year, something to push me into reading more. I found it with My Readers Block's Mount TBR Reading Challenge. The idea is to read books you already own. My library is basically a wall-to-wall TBR. I'm very good at acquiring books, but not always in reading them.

Books must be owned by you prior to January 1, 2012. No ARCs (none), no library books. No rereads. The ARCs don't worry me, but the library limitation may be painful. I've managed to read quite a few of them, especially with the addition of ebooks.

That's why I have signed up for Pike's Peak. That locks me into reading 12 books from my TBR pile. Going by my latest Goodreads stats, I could do at least 25 a year, but that'd include both library books and graphic novels/manga, so I'm allowing for a fudge factor. I haven't decided which shelves I'll work on. Or maybe I'll use the Goodreads shelves as a guide...
