The Unread Shelf Challenge 2019

This challenge is run by The Unread Shelf on Instagram.
This ones simple: Select a book from your unread shelf, and either read it or get rid of it.
There are monthly tasks that will help us refine the choices but ultimately the more we can read the better. Hopefully the monthly deadlines will motivate us to decide whether a book really deserves a place on our shelves or not!

Books relating to the monthly challenge will be highlighted in Red.

▪️January – any unread book
▪️February – a book gifted to you
▪️March – the book that’s been on your shelf the longest
▪️April – the book you most recently acquired
▪️May – a book you bought because of the film/TV/theatre adaptation
▪️June – a book about travel or set in a country you’ve never been to
▪️July – a book from a series on your shelf
▪️August – a book voted for you to read by Bookstagram
▪️September – a book you can buddy read with someone
▪️October – a book that scares you, whether because of length, content, or actual horror level!
▪️November – a book from your favourite genre
▪️December – the shortest book on your shelf
