Name: Off the Shelf Challenge
Hosts: Bookish Ardour
Starts: January 1, 2013
Ends: December 31, 2013
Eligible Books: Books you own prior to 2013. I will also personally count books I acquire in 2013 toward my own personal goal of making sure I read all the books I own.
Levels: 7. I'm going to try for the second level of 15 books.
Prizes? None that I see

Why I'm Interested:
Because I am terrible at actually reading the books I own. I think 15 is a lofty goal and I actually don't think I'll accomplish that, but the first level of five books felt like taking the wimpy way out. Plus, I have this goal for a reason, and reading only five books doesn't really satisfy that reason.
Besides, last year I ended up reading 13 books for the challenge, so hopefully I can at least come close to replicating that. I'll be happy if I tackle at least seven previously owned books and 15 books I acquire in 2013.
Some books I'm considering:
Books I own and have not read, particularly:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Haunting Violet by Alexandra Harvey
Storybound by marissa Burt
The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
and any other books that qualify for my other challenges
1. Angelfall by Susan Ee
Books Acquired in 2013 Completed:
4. A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan
3. The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
2. The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen
1. The Fourth Stall Part III by Chris Rylander
Have you read any of these books? Do you have any suggestions that I absolutely MUST read?
