I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Both URL Phantomhive and The Primroses Were Over recently posted about a reading challenge I found appealing, "12 Ways to Kill Your TBR This Year." I like that I can just do it and no one else will notice or care how well I'm doing (or not doing), and each month is general enough that I can think of something in my TBR that would apply. I plan to use it as inspiration to get through at least one book in my physical TBR a month.
Here's my current avatar with her lovely pet mantis shrimp, which I like to imagine would, if it existed in real life, happily bludgeon to bits all the things that annoy me and stress me out:
I've set up each month as a task.
Unfortunately, once those are checked off they're gone, so I wanted a way for additional books after the first one to count. At the moment, I'm going with "Read a physical book" in the Habits section, but since I'd click that so rarely and since it means quick reads would count the same as longer reads, I might tweak it, maybe set it up so that it's based on number of pages for paginated stuff (novels) and number of volumes for unpaginated stuff (like a lot of my manga).
I considered setting this all up as a Challenge on Habitica, but even after a year on the site I'm hesitant to create (or even enter) challenges.
At the moment, I'm only planning on allowing physical books to count for the "To-Dos" part. If I tweak the "Habits" section, I'll probably end up allowing both paper and e-books to count, since I don't currently have a "Habit" set up that applies to reading. However, the point of the challenge, for me, is to inspire me to get through more of my physical TBR, which I sometimes forget about when I'm immersed in my e-books.
