Conquering the Ebook Pile

I'm not proud of this but in the 5 or so years I've had my Kindle, I've acquired over 500 ebooks & egalleys that...I still haven't read. And some of them I downloaded the first week I had my Kindle. I kept falling for the trap of the cheap ebooks and the freebies. Plus when looking at Netgalley or EW, I grab books I wouldn't normally or I'm not sure about so I can give them a chance. All in all, it's added up to a lot of books, especially books I'm not even sure I'd love.

My goal in 2017 is to finish one at least ebook a week. Which, initially, you kind of go??? That's only 52 books. That's like 1/10 of what you have. TRUE, but I have to finish the books - if I DNF, it counts towards my read total, but not towards this challenge. (DNFs are gonna be my saving grace in these challenges.) I'm also not going to include library ebooks, since I don't really own those, I'm just borrowing them, so it's no huge burden.
