December 2013 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews
Good morning, and Happy New Year, all! I hope everyone’s holidays have been festive, fun, and safe! I’ll do my 2013 year-end wrap-up post later this week, but here’s just for the month of December.
Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update
I started December with 257 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …259! Not bad for for a month that includes Christmas AND the end of the semester AND a whole bunch of my library holds all coming in at once. I was insanely busy most of the month, but I managed to squeeze in a fair bit of reading regardless. Not as much as I’d like – never as much as I’d like – but not bad, either. Plus, I know the first part of January is going to be crazypants insane, but hopefully I can at least sort of keep up the pace in the new year.
…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
|Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)|
|– The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett||– Restoration by Olaf Olafsson|
|– Among Others by Jo Walton (Finally got my own copy, after having it on my wishlist for years! Ana, Jenny, Memory, and Gavin‘s faults)||– Dangerous Women ed. by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois|
|Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)|
|– Shadow Magic by Patricia C. Wrede||* Pursuant to the discussion on this post, I’ve decided to create an eTBR pile for e-books 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.|
