2017 Blogger Shame Reading Challenge Sign Up

Blogger Shame 2016

2017 Blogger Shame Challenge hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup

I have been hesitant to sign up for any challenges but I really need this one.  I have so much guilt about all of the review books that I just haven't had a chance to get to just yet.  I have had some of these books for over 3 years at this point and I really need to make a dent in the pile.  I wanted to work on my backlog in 2016 and it just didn't happen so I am going to be a bit more official (and accountable) with this goal in 2017.

What Counts?
Any review book that is over 4 months past due counts for this challenge.  

There aren't any official levels so I am just going to try to get as many done as I can while still reading some current books.

I currently have 85 NetGalley books, 9 Edelweiss books, and 1 book sent by the publisher that qualify for this challenge so I shouldn't run out of reading material.

Check In Posts
There will be three posts for this challenge.
