The Empty Shelf Challenge!

Book Shelf

This is a photo of one of my bookshelves in my home office.

Why is it empty? Because I plan to fill it this year.

And I dare you to do the same.

Today, I’m launching the “Empty Shelf Challenge.”

Here’s how you play along.

Empty a shelf in your house somewhere. Every book you read from now until December 31, 2014 goes on the shelf. (Waiting until January 1st to do something awesome is stupid and fake.) At the end of the year, I guarantee you will have read more than you did in 2013. Best of all, you’re scientifically more likely to accomplish something when you have people working on it with you.

I even created a shared Pinterest board. Each time you add a book, if you’re on Pinterest, you can add the picture of the shelf filling up. (Leave your Pinterest name in the comments if you want me to add you to the board. Start by posting your empty bookshelf!)

If you’re a digital reader, take a screenshot of the cover and share that. Or if you’re a library person, take a shot of it on your shelf and then return. Any and all books count, not just non-fiction.

That’s it.

You ready? The hashtag will be #EmptyShelf.

It’s time for the empty shelf challenge!

    Great idea! My Pinterest username is sarahradams.

    Really like this idea. Should I tape of strips of paper for the eBooks I read on my Kindle?

  3. Quick ? What if you read a lot of e-books? Can we do the empty shelf on our e-readers too?

      “If you’re a digital reader, take a screenshot of the cover and share that.”

    • Johnny Reply

      If you check Amazon or other bookseller, it will show the thickness of the printed version of the book in its description. You can use this to determine how much of your shelf you’ve “read.”

    • I use GoodReads to keep track of all the books I read and you can set up custom bookshelves. I made a new one called emptyshelf and I’ll just add ebooks that I read to it. I can take a screenshot as it fills up.

      • Darcyjo Reply

        That sounds good to me. I don’t keep every book I read–anything I won’t ever read again (and isn’t a reference book) gets listed at Paperbackswap.com to go to someone else to read.
        Besides, I have a constant flow of books coming in, and how else would I have anyplace to put them? :D

      • That is a brilliant idea!! I get most of my books from the library. And though my librarians love me, I think it might test their patience if I refused to return their books until December. :)

  4. Love it!! My pinterest name is Melissa Kile. Thanks!

  5. In! This sounds like a challenge I can tackle with great glee, unlike those “go to the gym,” “floss every day” kind.

  6. What happens if you don’t have shelves to empty because you’re already out of shelves? Such is the life of a bookworm.

    • Crystal Reply

      That was my thought! How on earth am I going to find an EMPTY shelf??!!
      (Maybe it can be a shelf in a cabinet. I gotta go move some cans around…)

    • Buy another shelf? Use the top of a shelf? I had to clear one off too; still not sure where everything I cleared off of it is going to go, but it’s a start!

    • I’m just going to use a “shelf” on Goodreads. That’ll keep the library and eBooks together also, and it will satisfy my librarian OCD tendencies lol

  7. Love it.
    I made 2014 shelf with all the books I’m GOING to read . . . as well as some on my kindle. Can’t wait to get started.

    • Rachel Reply

      I did that LAST year … and .. uh … they’re all still there! ‘Cause I found OTHERS to read in their place …. NEVER enough time.

  56. Michelle Reply

    I love this idea but of course in true form I must adapt it and make it mine LOL. I, also, am an avid ereader as well as a paper book purchaser who has no room on a shelf. I did already resolve that this year I would make better use of my public library, so I am going to go with the pin idea and create a special board for cover pictures of the books I read this year. I expect it will be my largest board on pinterest. So now the question is do I pin my guilty pleasure books as well as the ones that make me seem intelligent and well read LOL

  57. Kris10 Reply

    You can make more room by getting rid of one of the two copies of “Blue Like Jazz” on the shelf above it . . . or better yet, both of them. :P

    Great idea … my only problem is that I come across a lot of great books and buy them at a pace that far exceeds the rate at which I find time to read them :/

    Ha! Great idea. This will motivate me to move books from my “waiting to be read” shelf/shelves to a new “read it!” shelf. Which also means I’ll be clearing out already full shelves…..that will need filled next year. win, win, win.

      I have friends who buy the under bed storage containers for their books. They also use books as furniture (stacked up with glad on top for a table etc) because they both read so much. And that’s with using the library as well!

  81. Erika Reply

    I don’t buy books anymore — or I very rarely do. And, when I do buy a book, it’s because the library didn’t have it, so once I’m done, I donate it to the library so they can have it in their collection and someone else can read it. I rarely want to read a book more than once and when I do, I can go find it. I do have some I’ve kept over the years. Don’t get me wrong, our house is FULL of books – I just don’t need to keep on collecting and I like to spread the joy.

    At the risk of being Captain Obvious is this to motivate us to read MORE or just to keep track of what we are reading. Because if I read more my husband might ship me off. LOl I do think this is a great idea!

  143. That would be fun, except I get most of my books from the library or borrowed from friends.

  144. Love this idea and is something I would do, but we are living in a small house, & will be moving (we think) within 6-7 months.

    Another alternative for Kindle readers: If you can find a cheap paperback version of what you’re reading at a used book store, you can put the physical one on the shelf while reading the electronic version. :)

Plus, I have never played well with others…I do not need others to challenged myself and to meet said challenge.

    I think this is a great idea!! I love to read, but I let other things get in the way and I haven’t finished a book in a long time. Starting with ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy. :)

  466. I just finished “Start.” :) I bought it for my dad for Christmas, so I had to finish it quickly before we celebrate this weekend. I love this idea. Thanks for sharing!

    QUESTION: When are you going to write a book called “Finish.” I’m really good at starting…

    So along those lines, do we have to FINISH the books before we put them on our shelf? :)

  467. Just looking at that picture appalled me. I saw it on Pinterest and thought my heart was going to stop. So I came to this page and I’m now in love with the ‘empty shelf’. Following you on Pinterest, I’m http://www.pinterest.com/miscramblings

    OK, I just cashed in my man card and joined Pinterest…because I want to do this challenge. I’m not 100% sure if you search for my name, but I think you search for “larzmarshall”. I’m not sure how to follow anyone, but I’ll figure it out…

    Oh, and in tribute to Jon, my Pinterest picture is a picture of Tom Brady crying.

  697. Hi Jon, can you add me to the challenge as well? I’m MrsGixxer http://www.pinterest.com/mrsgixxer/
