I didn't do so great with this last year, so I'm keeping the same list. Will try to remember to keep track better.

  • Reduce Mt. TBR
  • Purge previously registered books - especially those registered by other members.
  • Read more books by black authors (and release for my February BC Release Challenge).
  • Read more books by LGBT authors or with queer characters/themes (and release for my June BC Release Challenge).
  • Read more diverse books in general - even if not released for a particular challenge.
  • Release books in 52 different cities - and try to theme those books to the releases.
  • Release books from my hometown for my There's No Place Like Home Release Challenge


My goal is to keep a spreadsheet of "local" releases for everyone who participates in the "There's No Place Like Home" challenge. I really like the visual aspect of LibraryThing's message boards, so maybe I'll use this thread (or a separate thread?) to keep track of all the books being released by state and country.

>1 originalslicey: Good luck with your goals! I too like the visual aspect of LT's boards, but mostly I love their cataloging features.

Doing pretty well so far. Here are the books I've read that fit my goals:

January-February
Reduce Mt. TBR
I read 7 books that I've had for at least 6 months on my TBR stack:

I read more books by black authors or with black characters:


I read more LGBTQ books:


I read more diverse books (not including the ones from the other 2 categories above):


I haven't released any books yet for any of my goals, I've just been reading so far.
