Am I crazy? This is crazy. OWNtober is making its THIRD comeback on the blog! That’s definitely bonkers, right? At least, I think it is. Might just be me. Okay. I’ll quit the rambling now.

So! OWNtober! To those new to my challenges, I host these every month. Every month there’s something different we focus on. You get to pick how much of your reading you devote to my challenges, but you should at least read one book that fits! October? Well. October is all about the owned books. Those unread ones stacked on your desk or next to your bed. Or maybe even in your basement because you’re running out of book space? In any case! Those unread, physical books are the ones we’re trying to read!

So run over to your piles and start deciding what to read during October!

◊ Post a blog post / comment / Tweet / whatever saying you’ll be joining me in my battle against the ever-growing physical TBR-piles and pingback to this post.
◊ Share your list of all the books you own and then decide which ones you’re going to read first.
If you can’t figure out a sequence for yourself, you can always start a poll and let others help you out!
◊ If you’re sharing your updates on social media, use #OWNtober so we can follow up on each other!


It isn’t necessary to dedicate the whole month to my monthly challenges. Our TBR’s are all through the roof so it can already be a challenge to read only one or two books that fit this month’s challenge.
You can still join then! The more the merrier!
Remember, it doesn’t matter how much you read. As long as you have fun reading.
And as long as we can tackle our TBR’s, bit by bit.

    3. No problem. 🙂

      Yes, and it helps that there always lots of birds and lizards in the back yard. So, they sit on my books and watch the critters in the yard. 🙂
