Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update
I started January with 195 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …195! Not my best month ever, but given that it’s the beginning of the semester, and compared to the past few Januaries, I think I did pretty well! AND I finally started working through my backlog of reviews. I’m nowhere near caught up, but it feels good to be reviewing again after basically totally abandoning it last semester. My goal for February is to read a few more of my own books, and hit the pile of graphic novels that I've had checked out of the library and completely forgot about during January.
…anyways, let’s take a look at the breakdown:
Neutral books – Read, but don’t affect the TBR pile
Read But Not Owned (Books)
Changes to the TBR pile
Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
|Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)|
|– Worlds Elsewhere: Journeys Around Shakespeare’s Globe by Andrew Dickson|
|Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)|
|– A Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie R. King||– Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard|
|* Pursuant to the discussion on this post, I’ve decided to create an eTBR pile for e-books and audiobooks that I accept for review or for which I actually pay money. I’m not adding them into my total TBR numbers, but I have to fess up about them somewhere. Keeps me honest.|

Why do I have it? I don’t remember where all I heard about it (probably lots of places – I remember it getting a lot of buzz), but it sounded interesting and up my alley, so I picked it up when it was on sale.

Why do I have it? I read several of David Mitchell’s books about 10 years ago and liked them, but haven’t been back since (for no good reason), so the publication of his new book that is a semi-sequel to Bone Clocks gave me the push I needed.
