Mt TBR Report: January 2019

It’s amazing the way the minute I say I don’t care about shrinking Mt TBR it goes and shrinks. A lot of it was due to Aurealis reading, which had to be wrapped up. However, I also did a bit of decluttering. It’s nice to have the pile below 400 books again. Mt TBR Status […]

Mt TBR Report: November 2018

As I’ve mentioned before, my reading stats tend to be down in November. I generally manage 6-8 books, so I was pleased that I managed the higher end of that range this year. I reviewed two collections of short stories this month, which slowed me down. The stop-start of short story anthologies is more difficult […]

Mt TBR Report: October 2018

October was my birthday month and one of my gifts was a Kobo e-reader (to help me break free of Amazon’s evil clutches). So, I might have got a little excited with purchases. I also borrowed a pile of books on journaling from a friend. Even my voracious reading this month wasn’t enough to help […]

RIP XIII

  Happy Halloween! I admit I don’t really celebrate, but it is a wonderful excuse to wear some awesome manicures. Of course, the arrival of Halloween means that the 13th Readers Imbibing Peril reading challenge is coming to a close. In case you have forgotten, this is basically an excuse to read as much as […]
