Mt TBR Report: November 2017

November found me a long way off my reading game. I had some time-consuming personal commitments which chewed into my reading time. And I DNFed two books this month. Combined, it makes for the worst reading month I’ve had all year. Of course, acquisitions haven’t slowed down at all. I managed to pick up some […]

Mt TBR Report: October 2017

I managed to compound the situation by acquiring way too […]
