TBR Intervention

So, I currently have 1245 books on my Goodreads' To Be Read list. I have probably about 500 books in my home to read, and another 500 on my Nookcolor. And yet, daily, I find myself adding books to my TBR list and never actually reading any of them. So my goal, along with some other book bloggers, have made it a goal to read one book from our TBR list every week. I still have 6 more books to read for my 2011 Goodreads Challenge so this should help me.

his blog event will take place every Saturday, and will start OCTOBER 15TH!

Official blurb and rules:
The goal of this challenge is to help each other (fellow readers and bloggers) manage our enormous and constantly growing TBR (To-Be-Read) List. The rules are simple and everyone is encouraged to participate. It does not force you to commit to more than what you can manage to read in a week or so, but participants are encouraged to read at least one book within a week. You are free to choose the book you want to read and commit to this challenge. You may post your entry every Saturday, at the frequency of your choice–EVERY WEEK or EVERY TWO WEEKS. However, we will sponsor this event regularly every Saturday.

Here are the rules:

1. Post the book(s) you committed to read in your last TBR Intervention post and tell us something about it. Did you finish it? Did you enjoy it or not? Post the link to your review (if you have one).
2. Post a book that you want to read and already own. Pick something that has been sitting on your shelf for too long now (6 months or longer). Commit to read the book in the next couple of days or week.
3. Grab the TBR Intervention Button and post it on your blog sidebar so you will be constantly reminded of the challenge, making it easier for you to commit. This will also encourage other readers/bloggers/visitors to join the challenge.
4. Add the link to your post in the Linky below (Linky for the actual TBR Intervention post will be available once this challenge go live on October 15th, Saturday) and make sure to visit the other blogs. Comment, encourage, and spread the love to our fellow readers.

So this week, my goal is to read one book from my TBR list. Which book will it be....
I'm going to go with Her Mother's Daughter : A Novel of Queen Mary Tudor by Julianne Lee. Hopefully I will have it finished by next Saturday and I can delete it from my TBR list. Insha'Allah.
