Clear off Your Shelves Challenge

So, in general, I tend to be very bad at challenges. I start by keeping track of the books I read, and then I get to a book that I don't love so much, and it takes me forever to read and then I forget that I was reading it for a challenge and then the keeping track of books thing just stops.
I had decided to challenge myself, though, to be better. And, since I do desperately need to read all of the older books that are taking over my shelves, I have decided to participate in S. Krishna'sClearing off Your Shelves Challenge.
Go check out her post to see what this challenge is all about.
The challenge is for the months of October and November, and we have to decide which percentage of books we read will be old instead of new. Since I'm participating in NaNoWriMo in November, I'm guessing I won't be reading a LOT. So I'm going to go all out and say at least 80%.
Especially since I am new to blogging, and I therefore do not have any ARCs. And I don't really even know how to go about getting them.

And there we go. I'm going to try to make a list later.

Good luck with the challenge! I'm resisting this one myself, although it's so tempting.

I'm so doing this, but without joining in the challenge! I like to take them one at a time, and right now I'm doing Peril the First. I have tonnes of books to get through! Not that I'm complaining ;)

what is an ARC?

I signed up because I have tons of personal books that I never get to because I get new ones from the library. I'm hoping that this challenge will help me clear some off!

WOW - 80%! I'm very impressed! Good luck, and thanks for joining!
