For today’s post, I will be sharing my 4th update post for the Clearing The Hoard – Bookwyrm Challenge, which was created by the lovely Caffeinated Fae.
Rules for the Clearing The Hoard – Bookwyrm Challenge
Do you want in on this? Feel free to adapt the idea! Use this as an excuse to read some of the books on your bookshelf! All you need to do is once a month read a book that you previously owned! Once you’re done reading that book decide if it’s a keeper or if it needs a new home! Make sure to tag Caffeinated Fae so she can share your posts!
Here are my stats from when I originally took on this challenge:
Total physical books owned: 388
Total physical books read: 95
Total physical books unread: 293
Total eBooks owned: 65
Total eBooks read: 22
Total eBooks unread: 43
Overall total number of books owned: 453
Overall total books read: 117
Overall total books unread: 336
Here are the stats from when I last did an update (update 3):

And here are my newly updated stats:
Total physical books owned: 425
Total physical books read: 127
Total physical books unread: 298
Total eBooks owned: 120
Total eBooks read: 46
Total eBooks unread: 74
Overall total number of books owned: 545
Overall total books read: 173
Overall total books unread: 372
So, I have gained quite a lot of new books because of blog tours and ARCs, I also take advantage of the 2 free books for Amazon Prime users each month, which really hasn’t helped my stats… In the past few month, I’ve actually hardly bought any books at all (which I’m extremely proud of).
I am currently reading 2 ebooks, and I plan on reading a few more books this month too. By the end of the year, my unread total is still going to be very high, but there will hopefully be quite a few less than there is now, and next year I’m planning to really cut back on blog tours and ARCs to tackle the unread books I already have.
If this challenge is running again next year, I will definitely be taking part!
How are you getting on with your goals and challenges for this year (if you have any)?
