November 2014 Monthly Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews
Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update
I started November with 244 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …245! Ah, November. I was done with the busiest part of my semester in October, so my hope was that I could have a little free time in November to do some more reading. And to some extent that was true, but to a large extent I spent a lot of that time catching up on other (non-reading) things that I had let slide during October. Plus I had family in town for Thanksgiving, which was wonderful, but limited the amount of reading I was able to get done. Maybe December? It’ll crazy-busy with the end of the semester, and the holidays, and prepping for next semester, but I will at least have some travel time, and hopefully at least a little more downtime to curl up with a book or three!
…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!)|
|– Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn||– The Kitchen Counter Cooking School: How a Few Simple Lessons Transformed Nine Culinary Novices into Fearless Home Cooks by Kathleen Flinn|
|– The Pierced Heart by Lynn Shepherd||– The Woman Who Would Be King: Hatshepsut’s Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt by Kara Cooney|
|Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)|
|– Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith||– Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Ben H. Winters|
|* 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.|
