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: 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 […]

Mt TBR report: August 2016

I did a decent amount of reading this month, but just couldn’t keep up with the onslaught of books that came in this month. Most of these acquisitions came as Aurealis entries, but there were a few review books and I also couldn’t resist a few other bits and pieces. Mt TBR is definitely at […]

Bout of Books 17 report

Round 17 of Bout of Books wrapped up on Sunday, so it’s time for me to check in with my progress! In my sign-up post, I mentioned my goal was to get through a minimum of three books. For a while there, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it. I started out with Peter S. Beagle’s Summerlong. […]

Mt TBR report: March 2016

Um. So, between some excellent sales (particularly from Samhain as they wind up), some raids on the library in preparation for Contact and my trip to the Contact dealers room, I might have been a bit excitable with my acquisitions. Even keeping up my excellent reading rate hasn’t helped. But I always knew March was […]

My Favourite Reads of 2015

There won’t be a Loose-leaf Links post for December. This month’s schedule is a bit shorter than usual because Earl Grey Editing will be closed from 24 December until 4 January. That makes this my last post of the year. So along with the sight of this tasty Christmas tea blend from The Tea Centre, […]

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, […]
