C.B. James threw out the dare and I'm going to take it on! If you remember from my reading goals and challenges post, I mentioned that a top goal for me is to read from my mountainous to-be-read collection. This dare nicely aligns with that goal.
The dare is simply to "make a resolution to read only the books in your To Be Read stack from January 1, 2012 to April 1."
This is not a book buying ban but is, instead, a dare to only read books from my TBR collection during the stated time period. As of 12:00 am January 1, no newly purchased books and no borrowed books can be read until April 1. Of course, it would be helpful if I didn't buy any books during that time as well, but that is a separate issue!
At least this wasn't a double dog dare or, gasp, the dreaded triple dog dare! Wish me luck.
