2023 TBR Pile Challenge #TBRYear10


Another new to me challenge this year is the TBR Pile Challenge from Roof Beam Reader. With this challenge, we choose 12 books that have been on our TBR shelves for at least a year, plus two alternates in case we need to abandon a horrible book. The goal is to read them and get them off the shelves! I really need this challenge---ha!
Use hashtag #TBRYear10 on social media.

I've chosen the 14 oldest TBRs on my shelf. Here are my choices:

2. A Nostalgic Almanac by Edna Hatlestad Hong, 16 years TBR 

3. A Handbook of Ancient History in Bible Light by Miller, 15 years TBR

4. Little House in the Ozarks by Laura Ingalls Wilder, 14 years TBR

5. The Bible as History by Werner Keller, 14 years TBR

6. My Heart's In the Lowlands by Liz Curtis Higgs, 13 years TBR

7. Children of the New Forest by Frederick Marryat, 13 years TBR

8. Celtic Christianity by Christopher Bamford, 13 years TBR

9. The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, 13 years TBR

10. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell, 12 years TBR

11. Morte d'Arthur by Thomas Malory, 12 years TBR

12. The Voice of the Irish by Michael Staunton, 12 years TBR

2. Inside the Victorian Home by Judith Flanders, 11 years TBR

  1. I read Evelina this year, and really loved it. It's surprisingly quite hilarious sometimes but not overly comical.

    Ah the Little House series...I've been meaning to read more of it!

    Good luck with the challenge, and enjoy! 😊

  2. What an interesting list! Le Morte d'Arthur was pretty good & The Canterbury Tales can be hilarious. Can't go wrong with Elisabeth Gaskell!
