Clear Away the Clutter Mini-Challenge

Kate at The Neverending Shelf is hosting this awesome mini challenge. Here are the details!

Clear Away the Clutter's purpose:

If you are like me, you have an abundant amount of review and TBR books that need desperately your attention. This mini challenge will challenge you to read and do something with those titles once they have been completed.

Your goal is read as many titles as you can and pass along those that you do not absolutely want to keep. This means that if you do not plan to reread a certain book at least once or twice... get rid of it, it is just clutter.


  • The mini challenge begins March 1st and ends May 31st. You can join at anytime once the challenge as begun.
  • Anyone is welcome to participate in the mini challenge.
  • By the end of the challenge, you MUST get rid of all the titles that you do not absolutely love. You can hold a contest, donate, give to a friend, etc. Your ultimate goal here is to clean off your shelves.
  • You do not have to have a blog to participate. If you are interested, please email me at for more information.
  • Please create a post for titles you plan to read. You can of course update and modify this list at any time.
  • Once a novel is completed, let us know what you plan to do with it. You can put this information beside the title in your challenge list post. Right now, I am planning to host a large contest for all the novels that I read and do not absolutely love at the end of the challenge.
  • Crossover with other Challenges is welcome.

  • Packrat: Read and clean out 5 titles
  • Mini-packrat: Read and clean out 10 titles
  • Organizer: Read and clean out 15 titles
  • Cleaner: Read and clean out 20 titles

Personally, I'm attempting the Cleaner Level, but we'll see. I'm not sure how many of the books I read I'll be giving away. Most of the books will be put into a blogoversary contest - much like my Birthday Bash - that is coming up in June, just in time for this to end.
