2012 TBR PILE Reading Challenge

Look!  I found another reading challenge to join.  And this one is perfect too!  I'm soo looking forward to having new space on my bookcase.  It has been over flowing with books ever since Borders closed there doors.  I loved buying so many books for nothing.  But when I got home with all the books from my second and third trip my bookcase began to look like an episode of "Hoarders". 

With this challenge there are over 300 other blogs participating and their are prizes too!  And several host to help out!
