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

With two months left to go, I think I can give up on any vague hope I had of breaking even on Mt TBR this year. Though, to be fair, October is both birthday month and Conflux, so I didn’t really stand a chance. Fortunately, my other reading goals are looking good. The first was […]

Mt TBR Report: September 2017

September is traditionally a difficult month for me due to the sheer number of personal and professional commitments I have. This year was certainly no exception, leading to my poorest month for reading so far this year. What reading I did tended towards light romances. I managed to compound the situation by acquiring way too […]

Mt TBR Report: August 2017

Although August got off to a good start, I had a bit of a reading slump that started about a week in. I’m only just pulling out of it now. Nevertheless, Mt TBR is still looking in good shape after I culled a few books. It brings me back below my starting figure for the […]
