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 […]

The 2016 Sci-fi Experience wrap-up

Back in December I signed up for the 2016 Sci-fi Experience, a reading challenge run by Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings. My hope was the challenge would provide a bit of a counterbalance to all of the fantasy I read. The challenge wrapped up on Sunday after running for two months. I have some mixed […]

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 […]

Mt TBR report: October 2015

As expected, October saw a bit of an influx of books, partly thanks to the dealers’ room at Conflux… though I also need to stay away from NetGalley for a while. It’s a good thing Dewey’s read-a-thon took place this month or the damage might have been worse. Mt TBR Status Mt TBR @ 1 […]

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, […]
