Mt TBR Report: February 2018

February was predominantly a month of romance and YA for me. My reading habits have grown in those directions, anyway, but I was also a bit burnt out and I find those genres comforting. Fortunately for me, I was able to take a short holiday and spent a fair amount of it reading. So, it […]

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: 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: April 2016

March may have been a terrible month for Mt TBR, but April made up for it. I’m very pleased that I have almost broken even for the year and I’m hoping I can keep this up for the next eight months. Hey, a girl can dream. I’ve also done better with #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks. My goal for the […]

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 […]

Mt TBR Report: December 2015 and Yearly Wrap-up

Happy New Year! I hope 2016 has been treating you well so far. I had a lovely time with family and friends. My only complaint is that I didn’t get enough reading time (but when is that ever the case?). Before I kick off with all my book-geeky stats, I want to congratulate Liz Barr […]
