Mt TBR report: July 2017

The winter weather must be helping my reading stats because I got through a fair few books this month. Combined with a modest number of acquisitions, I’m on track to break even on Mt TBR this year. Not that I expect that will last, but one can hope. I continue to meet my goals of […]

Mt TBR report: June 2017

2017 is now half over and I have met my initial annual reading goal of 100 books. I’ve decided to go ahead and set a new target. Without the Aurealis Awards to spur me on, my reading pace has slowed, so I think 200 books isn’t realistic. However, 150 books should be achievable. June was […]

Mt TBR report: May 2017

It’s official: the Hugo Awards have broken my Mt TBR. The voting packet arrived this month and I am suddenly drowning in books. There’s still some that came in the voting packet that I haven’t yet recorded on my TBR. Nevertheless, I’m quite delighted. In addition to the things listed below, I also made my […]

Mt TBR report: April 2017

April was already a great month for my reading, but it was nice to have Dewey’s readathon to give it an extra boost. Mt TBR has increased a little with the release of the shortlists for the Hugos and the Ditmars. However, the award shortlists also mean I’m not having any trouble meeting my new […]

Mt TBR report: March 2017

March was the first full calendar month where I didn’t have any reading to do for the Aurealis Awards. My reading rate subsequently took a plunge, but I remain happy, especially since there were a lot of good books this month. And things are likely to pick up again, now that the shortlists for the […]

Mt TBR report: February 2017

The first half of February continued January’s frantic pace as I concentrated on finishing all the remaining Aurealis nominations. The second half slowed down to a somewhat more manageable pace. Since I’m over halfway towards my goal of reading 100 books for 2017, I’ve decided to revise the goal up to 150. My other personal […]

Mt TBR Wrap-up: January 2017

2017 got off to an epic start. With the deadline for Aurealis judging breathing down my neck, I’ve been tearing through the books faster than I’ve been acquiring them. At the rate I’m going, I should have no trouble making it to 100 books by the end of the year. In fact, I’m thinking of […]

Mt TBR report: November 2016

November has been… an interesting month. I got off to a roaring start but eye strain slowed me down significantly and I continue to be slow to recover. So I’m pleased that I still managed to finish a reasonable number of books. As expected, my #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks stats continue to slip. My goal for the challenge was to make sure […]

Mt TBR report: October 2016

  Oh boy. October was a pretty good month for reading. It also involved a flood of acquisitions: some Aurealis entries, some gifts, some acquisitions from Conflux, some loans and some just because I had to have them. So usual story (well, except for the gifts), just slightly higher numbers. My #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks stats continue to slip. My goal […]
