Ok. I know it's not even Thanksgiving, but my thoughts have already turned to 2020. I really want to get serious about ROOTing and I'm hoping #Booked2020 will help. I'm going to try and focus on my many mass market paperbacks as it is easier to part with them after reading.

Jess_Read_This Oh gosh. I need to accept this challenge. I have been perusing my shelves with a measure of shame seeing the neglected ones I‘ve never read. And there they sit. 13h
Sace @Jess_Read_This it's something that's always at the back of my mind when I look at all my books. It's such a low pressure challenge and the goal is self selected, which is always a plus for me. If you're on LibraryThing there's a group. They will start gearing up for 2020 in December. 13h
Jess_Read_This @Sace I‘m not on Library Thing. I will check it out because this sounds like just the thing I need for 2020. I‘ve been slowly contemplating what my reading goals are going to be for 2020 and reading what I own is a priority one for me. 12h

Sace @Jess_Read_This Obviously it's an easy to reproduce challenge and you don't need to be on LibraryThing 😊 I just mentioned it because of the group support you can find. (Honestly I lurk more than anything.) 12h
Jess_Read_This @Sace Hehe..I‘d probably end up being a fellow lurker too. Another 2020 self goal is to make efforts in more frequent trips out of my lurkdom.☺️ 12h
Sace @Jess_Read_This I always go back and forth about lurking. I like participating, but at the same time I'm never going to be one to get out and actually meet anyone face-to-face. So even when I'm not lurking, I keep a distance. But social media is sometimes the only interaction I get with other like minded people. If that makes any sense. 12h

Signed up for #Booked2020 🎉 I haven't been very good about finishing book challenges in the past, but I'm hoping I can manage this one. I love that it's broken up into seasons to make it more manageable and there are some fun prompts here.

Now off to scout my shelves for possible books that fit each prompt.

Chrissyreadit 🙌🙌🙌 just sent email 😘 2d
MeganAnn @Chrissyreadit 👍🏻😍 2d
Sace I'm finding it really hard to resist joining. 2d
MeganAnn @Sace I think it‘ll be fun! 😆 I‘m not helping you resist though, am I? 2d
Sace I caved in and signed up. I realized I could use the January #MGbuddyread choice for January for one of the winter prompts and that was like a jumpstart I couldn't resist. 😂 I opted out of the giveaway though. 2d

#ghosttown Ghost Wall? Close enough. Picked this up at the recent book sale and I love the cover 😍

charl08 I love this cover! (I read one from the library I think- don't remember this design). 2d
Cinfhen I picked this up on a #KindleDailyDeal / might read for #Booked2020 #FinishInOneSitting 2d

My choices for the first season of #booked2020 - I reserve the right to change my mind at least 17 times before then though....

Pleased that I managed to get them all off my current TBR shelves though! 😁👍

Number 6 might not be that actual book - I have around 90 ‘Penguin 60s‘ to read, but I‘m reading them alphabetically and that‘s the next one....

Cinfhen Ohhhh; nice selections!! I‘m also trying to use books I own 😊 3d
TrishB Good ones - I‘m quietly stalking people‘s choices for ideas! I definitely want to try and do from current tbr. I‘ve yet to read A Gentleman....and I have two copies!! (edited) 3d
squirrelbrain I‘d suggest doing a #buddyread @TrishB , but we know how those usually go... 🤣 3d
TrishB We do indeed! Maybe separately and compare notes!! 3d
BarbaraBB Love your system of reading the Penguins alphabetically! 3d

When life gives you mushy bananas 🍌 you make sugar free banana muffins 🧁#AudioBaking I‘m in awe of Sally Field. If you‘re looking for a book for #Booked2020 #SetInHollywood I highly recommend this one, especially on audio 🙌🏻

LauraBeth Oohh - I have six mushy bananas on my counter. 🍌 3d
Cinfhen I had 3 so your 6 🍌should give you 2 dozen muffins. Recipe says they freeze well @LauraBeth 3d

#MOvember #LaIslaBonita Set on the lush island of Mallorca its mountains and beaches, its tapas and tennis courts, promise an escape for the Post family, who each have plenty they are hiding. I LOVED this novel full of light humor and rich peoples problems. This could work for #LoL #Booked2020

KarenUK Loved this one too! Can‘t wait for her new one next year.... 💕 4d
Cinfhen Ohhh, thanks @KarenUK for the heads up ♥️ 4d
