Mt TBR report: November 2015

Um. It’s amazing the damage a single Amazon gift card can do (though I am very pleased to have won it as part of Dewey’s read-a-thon and grateful to Rachel Noel of Purple Owl Reviews for donating it in the first place). Reading was also a bit slower this month, thanks to work chewing up more […]

A portrait of Mt TBR

  My very first post to this blog mentions that Mt TBR was reaching perilous new heights after I became involved with the book blogging community. The post sounds naive to me now, particularly as I wrote it before I started accepting review books. I thought Mt TBR was high back then, but it has grown […]

Mt TBR report: October 2015

As expected, October saw a bit of an influx of books, partly thanks to the dealers’ room at Conflux… though I also need to stay away from NetGalley for a while. It’s a good thing Dewey’s read-a-thon took place this month or the damage might have been worse. Mt TBR Status Mt TBR @ 1 […]

Mt TBR report: September 2015

September saw me power through the books for the second month running. This is probably a good thing because there was an influx of books in the last few days of the month and October holds the temptation of the dealers’ room at Conflux. Mt TBR status Mt TBR @ 1 January 2015: 202 Mt TBR […]

Mt TBR report: August 2015

Um. So I might have got a bit carried away with Mt TBR this month (or is it that Mt TBR carried me away this month…?). I think the only thing that saved me was the Bout of Books reading challenge. Mt TBR status Mt TBR @ 1 January 2015: 202 Mt TBR @ 31 […]

Mt TBR report: July 2015

I’m going to have to start reading more paper books, just so I can have something to photograph! I acquired a few books this month but am very pleased that Mt TBR has not really grown. Mt TBR status Mt TBR @ 1 January 2015: 202 Mt TBR @ 30 June 2015: 215 Mt TBR […]

Mt TBR report: June 2015

June was an exceptionally busy month for work, so I’m a little surprised I got in as much reading as I did. Mt TBR actually shrunk! This was partly because I returned a couple of books I’d borrowed before things got busy, but I was also good about not picking up too many new books. Hopefully, […]

Mt TBR report: May 2015

I think this month might be the first month this year I’ve broken even by reading as many books as I acquired. Now, if I can just improve on that a little… Mt TBR status Mt TBR @ 1 January 2015: 202 Mt TBR @ 30 April 2015: 220 Mt TBR @ 31 May 2015: 220 […]

Mt TBR report: April 2015

Reading slowed to a crawl this month, thanks to an especially busy month (both personally and professionally). Even the read-a-thon didn’t save me. I’m a little disappointed not to have kept up the pace of the last few months, however that rate tends to be more exception than rule. It will be interesting to see […]

Mt TBR report: March 2015

March has me well on the way to a record year in terms of the number of books I’ve read. I think I can safely say that this blog has had a definite impact on my reading patterns. However, as with last month, I’m still acquiring books faster than I’m reading them. The pile in […]
