I'm a tad late signing up for this, as it started on 1 November 2008, but it's such a good cause to I'll sign up anyway! The Rescue Challenge is hosted by Katrina at Katrina Reads and requires us to first get rid of the books that we know we won't read (I've already done this) and then to "set up a pool of unloved books and read between 3-6 of them between Nov 1st 2008 - Dec 31st 2009".
All of the following possibilities have been on my shelved for 3 years or more...
