We all do it, purchase a book, win one for a prize, etc... and then take it home to sit on the shelf and remain unread, because we are too busy reading other things, newer books, etc... When I came across this challenge hosted by Evie at Bookish, I knew I needed to sign up. So this coming year in 2012 I am going to attempt to read down my reading pile.
There are several levels for this challenge and a whole group of hosts:
1-10 - A Firm Handshake
11-20 - A Friendly Hug
21-30 - A Sweet Kiss
31-40 - Love At First Sight
41-50 - Married With Children
Thank you to all the wonderful blogs hosting this challenge--I hope I can do well and at least get through my ten!

For my challenge, I plan on starting small. I am going to try to complete 10 books--the Firm Handshake level. I am not sure I will accomplish it, but I am certainly going to try. Here are a few of the books I hope to tackle:
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
Torn by Erica O'Rourke
Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa (if I don't get to it this year)
and many more...
