A bunch of you probably participated in ARC August to focus on all those ARC’s that have been piling up and up. Now since we all know that our own physical TBR’s can get equally out of hand – be honest, it’s worse than those ARC’s piling up, isn’t it? – there’s now a month to dedicate to all the books you own: OWNtober!

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.

    1. Ugh, I have this pile sitting by my chair and the cat keeps knocking it over and laying on them and… they need to go. Hahaha.


  1. I just came across Sequel September and Owntober from Alex at coffeelovingbookaholic and I love (seriously, I’m giddy like a child) these monthly challenges!!! I am going to be checking them out and joining when I can!😊 I know I can’t do October because I don’t own any books that I haven’t read except like and those two aren’t on my Fall TBR challenge. I’ll check up in November and see what’s cooking!!

    1. Haha, yay! Feel free to join in whenever! The more the merrier, no? 🙂
      I already put up a little list for most months so you can already go ahead and check what interest you – but I already saw that you commented for Remember November so welcome to the challenge, haha!

    2. I think so, but I’m not sure about that yet. I guess I’ll have to see how many people think that month’s idea is a good one. Sequel September is one to say – but that’s more because I NEED that month more than anything sometimes, haha.
      Others might stay as well; or might change depending on inspiration and ideas. :’) Since it’s the first time doing things like this, I’m just going to wait and see what happens with it really..
