2020 Beat the Backlist reading challenge

And here another TBR challenge. I was waiting for this one. Here are the rules and guidelines. I was looking for a TBR challenge in which every book counted since there are a lot of books that are on my TBR (actually TBB – to be bought or borrowed) but that I still don’t own. So here I can count all the books that I already have, and the ones that are or will be on my to read list but that I still don’t own/borrowed as long as they were published before Dec 31, 2019.

I think I’m going to participate in the mini-team challenge, too. I will be a The TBR Stackers! For every book you read, you’re adding a bunch more to your TBR. It never ends! I just need to remember to submit the book once I’ve finished it. (with the handle Laura (@Eiencafe), just so I don’t need to check it up every single time I submit a book.)

And here my badge :D
