Beat the Backlist Reading Challenge 2020

This is the first time I’m trying the Beat the Backlist challenge hosted by @novelknight and I’m excited because my TBR pile is over 500 books long. Books read have to be published 2019 or before.

Here is my tracking, I’m just going to do it on my own – some book I’ve preplanned (hopefully) which you can see listed as TBR.

I’m adding my own twist on it and I’m going to give myself and extra good feels the longer they’ve been hanging around on my TBR in the from of points. One point for each year I’ve had it on my TBR and the aim is to get 100 points… We’ll see!

I’m also going to give the bingo a go and try and read as many as possible! For this I’m not worrying about if i’m using a book for another challenge (I’m also doing POPSUGAR’s and Dymocks), otherwise I probably wouldn’t have enough backlists to meet the tiles!
