Reward Challenge - stage #1

I don't know if you are anything like me but it is impossible to stop from buying books.  I love it, but sadly my bookshelves and my bank account don't.  When I found The Reading Reward Challenge hosted by Good Golly Miss Holly I knew this challenge was for me.  

The goal of this challenge is not a book buying ban but instead a reward program.  There are different stages and hopefully by the end your TBR pile will go down, but you'll still end up rewarding yourself by getting some new books (plus their are also prizes you can win!). 

Here is how it works
Stage 1      Read ONE Book (you own)       =      Buy ONE Book
Stage 2      Read TWO Books (you own)     =      Buy ONE Book
Stage 3      Read THREE Books (you own)
  =      Buy ONE Book
Stage 4      Read FOUR Books
(you own)    =      Buy ONE Book
Stage 5      Read FIVE Books (you own)
     =      Buy ONE Book

So far I have completed Stage 1.  I read Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles (review) and bought Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles.  

Now on to Stage 2...


  1. Eeeep I love that you started doing this :) I thought I was the only one haha! I've been wanting to read these books, I hear they're really good!

  2. Oooooooer. I like this challenge! I have the nasty habit of buying wallet and bookshelves (yes plural) need a break. I like this challenge...I think I may have to join up!

  3. I'm going to have to try this one out! Such a cool idea, too! Thanks for sharing.


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
