Mt TBR report: June 2016

  Entries for the Aurealis Awards started coming in this month. It has been a challenge to juggle them with reading for the Hugos and reading review books. However, I’m doing a decent job of keeping up with the Aurealis reading and the voting deadline for the Hugos is in a month. Things should ease […]

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: 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 […]

Mt TBR report: October 2014

September saw Mt TBR tower ever higher. As expected, Conflux contributed significantly, though wasn’t solely to blame. I’m just not reading as much at the moment and I shudder to think what Mt TBR would have looked like without Dewey’s read-a-thon to get it a little more under control. Mt TBR status Mt TBR @ […]

September Mt TBR segment

Mt TBR report: September 2014

A few years ago, I made an optimistic New Year’s resolution to finish the year with a smaller Mt TBR. If the overall total was less than it had been on 1 January–even if it was only by one book–I’d count myself successful. It’s a goal I’ve never managed to achieve, but I continue to […]
