Reward Challenge - stage 3

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 there are also prizes you can win!). 

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

The three book I read were Blood Drive by Traci Houston (review), Revelations by Melissa de la Cruz (review) and Dark Lover by J. R. Ward (review).  I decided to reward myself by buying Lover Eternal by J. R. Ward. 

I'm so happy I'm sticking with this reward challenge.  I think I'm going to have to read stage four books fast because I'm really excited to continue reading the Black Brotherhood series and I don't own anymore. 


  1. This reward challenge does sounds really good for the tbrpile.

  2. I'm experiencing a bit of challenge burn out, but this challenge looks like one I would have enjoy/needed.

    Get those books read because you seriously have to get more BDB books! At least get to Z's book! It's the BEST!

  3. So happy to see someone else doing this challenge!! It's really helped me cut down on my spending, and read everything in my TBR pile! :)
