Read My Shelves Challenge - The Whole Deal (Updated 5/23/17)

I've decided that the Read My Shelves Challenge needs a post dedicated to posting updates; including rules as they are added, the official Did Not Finish list, the official list of books I've read for the challenge, and any other information I think needs to go on here. I might even Pin it on Pinterest.
I'm also going to include a list of abbreviations since I seem to be using an awful lot of them recently. 

Goal of the Read My Shelves Challenge; To read the books sitting on your bookshelves, on your GoodReads Want-To-Read list, on your e-reader, or in your Audible library (or whatever other format you have), that you've been meaning to read but haven't gotten to yet. To cultivate the habit of reading and love the books you have. 

Abbreviations; (updated 4/22/17)
RMSC - Read My Shelves Challenge
TBR - To Be Read
DNF - Did Not Finish
GR - GoodReads
