May 2015 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews
Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update
I started May with 259 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …254! Hooray, I got to read! I spent this month polishing up books that have been partially finished for a long time (January, in some cases), and reading more! Not so much reviewing… I’m way behind, and will have to have a day or two to sit down and churn some of those out. (They’re also probably going to be pretty short, since I don’t remember a ton of details on stuff that I read more than a few months ago, but we’ll make do.) But I got to read! Books! For fun! Crazy talk.
…anyways, let’s take a look at the breakdown:
Neutral books – Read, but don’t affect the TBR pile
Changes to the TBR pile
Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
|Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)|
|– Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout||– In a French Kitchen: Tales and Traditions of Everyday Home Cooking in France by Susan Herrmann Loomis|
|– Rain: A Natural and Cultural History by Cynthia Barnett|
|Non-TBR acquisitions (storage-space-related shame!)|
|– The Ruby in the Smoke by Philip Pullman|
|Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)|
|– The Human Division (audio) by John Scalzi||* Pursuant to the discussion on this post, I’ve decided to create an eTBR pile for e-books and audiobooks 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.|
