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: June 2017

2017 is now half over and I have met my initial annual reading goal of 100 books. I’ve decided to go ahead and set a new target. Without the Aurealis Awards to spur me on, my reading pace has slowed, so I think 200 books isn’t realistic. However, 150 books should be achievable. June was […]

Mt TBR report: April 2017

April was already a great month for my reading, but it was nice to have Dewey’s readathon to give it an extra boost. Mt TBR has increased a little with the release of the shortlists for the Hugos and the Ditmars. However, the award shortlists also mean I’m not having any trouble meeting my new […]

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 […]
