The Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon has begun!

It's time for the Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon to kick off!! You can sign up through the 17th here, if you haven't already.

I will be posting daily updates. Tomorrow's post will be my status from today and then as follows each day. You are welcome to come link up (in comments) your daily updates to each of my posts every day, every couple of days, or just wait until the end and post a wrap-up post (which is required, the other post that is required is a sign-up post). Remember if you tweet to use hashtag #TackleTBR and you can copy me as well with @TresSherm.

Check out the schedule below, my goals (you can also link up yours if you didn't include them in your sign-up), and enter the giveaways!


Each stop/challenge will have a giveaway, except for the challenges I'll be hosting. Those will give you one entry on the Challenge Giveaway, which is for two $10 Amazon gift cards.

  1. I have started my first book!! I cannot wait to see if I'll accomplish my goal! Good luck people :)

  2. Veronica Morfi9/8/14, 5:42 AM

    I am also aiming for 8 books! Happy reading :)

  3. Katherine Reay9/8/14, 5:57 AM

    The pile has been collected and the reading begun!

  4. Whitney Martin9/8/14, 8:40 AM

    This is so exciting! I read one today :) I'm aiming for ten books, so I hope I can get those done.

  5. Yay! I'm pushing for a book a day. Crazy, but would be awesome! :D

  6. Hey, Veronica! I hope we both do great!! :D

  7. What are you starting with?

  8. One down already? That's AWESOME, Whitney! You're off to a great start!

  9. niki driscoll9/8/14, 11:44 AM

    do you have to have a blog to sign up? I don't have one.

  10. Definitely not. You just need somewhere to post that your signing up and updates, or at least a wrap-up post saying how you did. You can use FB, Twitter, Goodreads, Tumblr, Instagram... Let me know if you have more questions.

  11. You have some books on your list that didn't make it onto the goal list, but I will get to....eventually. :) Great list of books.

  12. Tiffany DeOs9/8/14, 8:07 PM

    Just posted my youtube video signing up and goals! :)

  13. I've really got so many books to read, Lisa. It's crazy! :) I'm hoping to read at least one a day, but it would be a miracle if I did.

  14. Saw it - loved it! :) Thanks, Tiffany!

  15. One day I am going to be able to read as many books a week as you do! You are my hero ;)

  16. Well, it does help that I have to. I think I was insane when I scheduled next week. I have five tour stops, one review scheduled for an author, and am also launching a tour with Prism (besides the read-a-thon). Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking?? I'm happily ahead in my posts, so I'll be just fine, but that's still crazy!

  17. Thanks, Laura! I'll be reading Rewind To You next week and I'm looking forward to it!
