Choose those books from your OWN collection

Sounds like a good challenge. Haven't read half of the books I have collected over the years.

What a great challenge! Good luck with it.

I definitely have to sign up for this one. I have way too many books flooding my shelves that I need to go through.

Good luck Jo-Jo. I just joined a bunch of challenges today. One for off my shelves so that should help get my piles down I hope.

I'm doing this one again this year.

I'm really working on only picking challenges that fit with the books I already own. I could probably do this without having to read any different books!
