August 2011 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

September 2, 2011

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started August with 275 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …270! The reading of 2000+ pages of A Song and Ice and Fire this month made me feel like I didn’t manage to read anything else, but somehow I managed to rock some negative numbers!

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

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

Audiobooks
Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin
Read but not owned
A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin
Jack of Fables Vol. 9: The End by Bill Willingham
Re-reads
A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
Blood, Bones and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef by Gabrielle Hamilton

The Time Machine by H. G. Wells
The Ravens of Falkenau and Other Stories by Jo Graham
The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry

No book stack picture this month! No book stack picture this month, because there is no stack. There is a stack of one. Go me!
Added to my TBR pile (shame!)

    Yay! It is always nice to see your TBR decrease in size.

    It is always a struggle to read more from your TBR pile each month than you add to it, so good job!

    Congrats on getting the piles smaller! Maybe you spent so much time reading that you simply forgot to add other books to the pile?
