these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

Guest Post - Laini's Giant To Be Read Pile!

I made this: Unknown at 8:00 am
The Lainibop Challenge!!

Inspired by BookElfLeed's TBR challenge (here), Laini - one of our friends and occasional #MedusaLBC members - decided to gather up her own 'To Read' pile. She included every book that had been sat unread on her book shelves. 

While I'm not entirely sure she expected for the total pile to comprise of 1 3 0 books - Laini isn't one to shirk from a challenge and so has set for herself the following mammoth task!

Lainibop will attempt to read all 130 books on the lower spreadsheet before she will allow herself to purchase or borrow any books(excluding her book club choices). 

If you fancy dropping her a line of commiseration or inspiration, say hi on twitter - @Lainibop

So far, she off to a good start. 
(We'll be updating these as she goes along.)
