Mount TBR Challenge Checkpoint

It's time for the first Mount TBR Reading Challenge checkpoint! I'm almost embarassed to share my progress so far, because there hasn't been a whole lot of it. I set out to climb Mount Ararat, which means I plan to read 40 books from my TBR pile in 2012. So, ideally, I would be at about 10 by now. Alas...

  1. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
  2. The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds by Sally Dubats
  3. The Hollow Tree by Janet Lunn
  4. Stolen by Kelley Armstrong
  5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  6. John Dies at the End by David Wong (in progress)
I'm at almost 6. I've been reading so many library books, NetGalleys, and new books! I don't know how this happened! So I guess it's a good thing we have these checkpoints, because this is a good reminder that I need to step it up a notch. Onward and upward! Make for the summit!


  1. Don't feel bad! I'm not making much progress on my TBR pile either! All the pretty new books at the library are distracting me, not to mention Netgalley!

  2. The library has snatched some of my steps up Everest as well....of course, if I hadn't signed up for challenges that kind of made me need library books, then I might not have that problem. :-)

    You'll make it! Don't want to start out too fast--you'll get light-headed in upper altitudes.

  3. Not to worry. I'm not on target to achieve the 50 books I pledged to read for this challenge, but we have plenty of time to catch up! I have a thing for new books too...

  4. Yeah, NetGalley, plus the re-reads (of long books!) I've been doing for the Anne Rice challenge, have been negatively affecting this challenge. But Bev's right: I'm just adjusting to the altitude! Slow and steady. :)

  5. You've made a dent, so that's the important thing. Hang in there!
