March 2012 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

April 2, 2012

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started March with 264 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …263! Not quite as impressive as last month’s -6, but still in the negative numbers, so that’s all to the good.

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

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

Heat: An Amateur’s Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany by Bill Buford
Chime by Franny Billingsley

Read but not owned
A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley
The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
