Empty That Shelf! - June Reading Challenge

June 1st - June 15th, 2012

Being the book fiends that we are we (I) ignore the stacks of books at home (especially the big one threatening to topple over next to my bed) and head to the bookshop to find a nice, shiny holiday read. Yip, I am SO guilty of this. Actually I fins it amazing that it doesn't matter how skint I am I still manage to find the pennies to get myself a book... But moving on. 
THAT is why I am going to spend the first 2 weeks of June reading from my to-be-read pile before it tumbles over in the night and crushes me in my sleep. 
Why 2 weeks? 
Well, there is something so scary and, well, negative about saying A MONTH - 2 weeks sounds a lot more achievable - and it seems that when something lasts a week I am just getting into it when it is over. 
And why now?
I just failed the Bout-of-Books read-a-thon at an epic level, no really, I managed to read one book in one week, that is DIRE for me. So it is time to do some mega catch-up. 
I was going to make this just a challenge for me but I have thrown together a button so if you would like to join in feel free to grab it :)
It is going to be pretty easy - 
Work your way through the books that have been sitting around for AGES and start reading. They can be from your physical shelf or from deep in the dusty memory of your e-reader. 
You do not have to set yourself a goal, you do not have to even think about what book you are going to read, just go with whatever book you want from your shelf at the time. 
If you would like to join me COOL! You can fill in the linky below - ok, I admit I may be using this as an excuse to play with the Mister Linky - with your blog link (or the link to your post saying you are participating)

This reading challenge is hosted by Blathering About Books. For more information and to sign-up, please see this post.
