2014 TBR Pile Challenge Wrap-up

2014 TBR Pile Challenge

At the beginning of last year, I signed up for the 2014 TBR Pile Challenge at Bookish, which asked participants to read books they owned prior to the beginning of 2014. The challenge itself kind of petered out, but I continued to document the books I read from my own shelves. I had originally aimed for 21-30 books, so I’m happy I managed to surpass that goal! Here’s what I read from my TBR pile in 2014, along with the date I acquired each book:
