Yo! Welcome back!
“What the heck is the Project 5?” you ask? WELL.
I heard about it on Caz’s lovely booktube channel!
Basically, it’s a book buying challenge. You read 5 books before you’re allowed to buy 1. I know right? Terrifying. Especially for someone as addicted to bookmail as I am!!
This’ll definitely help get my TBR total down. I want my total to drop significantly, if possible to 50 books! To put it in perspective, at the moment I own over 300 unread books…
PICK YOUR JAWS UP OFF THE FLOOR, LET’S CARRY ON.
This is going to be so hard. I’ll do my best to stick to it. But I’ll say this now: review books don’t count towards my “bought” tally. But anything that I buy out of my own pocket, for myself, those count.
I’m not sure whether to include multiple copies of a book? Say, if I loved a review book, then bought the hardcover? It’s not adding to my TBR technically, so I don’t know! I’m not sure about duplicates!
I fail completely at book buying bans, but the Project 5 challenge lets me accumulate books, so I like it. It’s not a complete ban, plus it will really make me consider which bookish purchases future-me will be making!
I’M GOING TO CROSS MY FINGERS.
I hope I can do this. Let’s get this TBR number down, starting in 2017. At the very least, I hope to shrink my monthly hauls considerably!
