TBR Dare


TBR Final Dare

This is Dakota. Dakota passed away earlier this year, but since she has always been the official mascot of The TBR Dare I decided to include her in this the final dare. She’s pictured here just after eating In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. Yes, it was a library book, and no, she was not sorry about it. It was a tasty book.

Are you brave enough for one final round?

I’m bringing back The TBR Dare one last time.

It works like this….

For the first three months of 2016 read only the books that were already in your TBR stack as of midnight December 31, 2015.

As always, you can include books you’ve ordered but not received yet as well as books you have already placed on reserve at your local library.  You can also make exceptions for certain books that will be published early next year along with book club choices and ARCS as needed.  The TBR Dare has always been about having fun, so make whatever changes to the “rules” you need to to keep it fun.

If you just want to take The TBR Dare for a month, that’s fine, too.  The TBR Triple Dog Dare will run from January 1, 2015 to April 1, 2005.  Technically, it’s not a shopping ban so you can still buy books–you just can’t read them until April 1.

To sign up, just leave a comment below.  I’ll add you to the list of who’s in as quickly as I can.

And please do help spread the word by posting on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere else you go on-line.  Feel free to use the “button” above and to link to this page.

This is it, my friends, the last one, so if you’ve thought about joining in in the past, but haven’t, take the leap….join the fun.

Be sure to check back here from time to time.  I’ll be posting updates throughout The TBR Triple Dog Dare to see how everyone is doing.

Remember, The TBR Triple Dog Dare is not a “reading challenge”; it’s a dare.  So if you’re someone who does not sign up for reading challenges you can still participate.

I triple dog dare you.
