TSS: September Wrap Up: Books and Reviews

October 3, 2010

The Sunday Salon.comHappy Sunday, all, and greetings from Down Under!

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started September with 263 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* … 260! That’s probably cheating, since I know I’ve already got more than a few unread books waiting for me in my mail once I get back to the States. But it sure sounds good, doesn’t it? Four whole months of negative numbers!

…anyways, let’s take a look at the breakdown:

Neutral books – Read, but don’t affect the TBR pile

The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Read but not owned
The Unwritten, Vol. 2: Inside Man by Mike Carey & Peter Gross
House of Mystery, Vol. 1: Room and Boredom by Matthew Sturges & Bill Willingham

Wise Child by Monica Furlong
The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
Mediator: Darkest Hour by Meg Cabot

E-Books & Stories
The Witch Queen’s Secret by Anna Elliott
Dawn of Avalon by Anna Elliott
Clash of the Geeks ed. by Wil Wheaton & John Scalzi

    I don’t think it’s cheating unless you can prove, conclusively, that they arrived in your mailbox before October 1st. ^-~

    Huzzah for negative numbers, though! Negative numbers are wonderful! Long may the negative numbers continue! And may you still be enjoying your time Down Under! ^-^

      Shanra – Well, at least one of them was a pre-ordered book that Amazon e-mailed me to let me know was on my doorstep on the 28th of September. But I didn’t see it, therefore it might not have been real!

    I can’t wait to see what you think of The Way of Kings–should be interesting. :)

      Omni – I’m going to get to it soon, I swear… it’s just sitting there, all fatty-fat and enticing and I have all of these other book obligations that I need to read first!

    I’m impressed any time your TBR pile goes down! I loved The Great Brain when I was a kid!

      Kathy – I loved the series too, but I never had my own copies; I always got them from the library. I’m trying to remedy that now.

    You are doing so well! And I think you meant September Wrap up!

    Here is my Sunday Salon post!

      Good catch; I’m going to blame jet lag! It’s fixed now.

    how odd that I just typed HUZZAH and then saw your name in the blogroll so I clicked here and you and included this word in your post.
    Just crazy! Congrats on negative number.

      Care – I love the word Huzzah! Huzzah for huzzah usage!

    I always enjoy your recaps! It’s fun to see how your tbr pile changes. I’m so looking forward to reading Revolution, I’m a bit envious of your copy!
    I read the Midnighters series too this month and I really had a great time. What did yo think of the conclusion?

      kay – Not to be a tease, but I just finished Revolution yesterday and it was AWESOME. (review’ll be up on Friday.) :)
