Welcome Back, TBR Pile Challengers!
It is April 15th and we are now at Checkpoint #4 for the 2013 TBR Pile Challenge! Can you believe we’re already 1/3 of the way through our challenge? Congrats to all those who have been keeping pace and making some progress – it has been awesome to see all the discussions on Twitter, Facebook, and your blogs!
Where I’m At: I have already read 7 of my required 12 books. I can’t believe I’m more than half-way done! I plan to read one more (Gods and Monsters) by mid-May, which will leave me with just 3 more books to finish this challenge. Looks like I might get to read all of my 12 and the 2 alternates, this year!
Book #1: O Pioneers! by Willa Cather
Book #2: The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
Book #3: Orlando by Virginia Woolf
Book #4: The Gunslinger by Stephen King
My favorites so far have been Orlando, A Streetcar Named Desire, and O Pioneers! but, I’ve really enjoyed all of my choices – the Morris Kaplan text, in particular, was very interesting!
Now that we’re 1/3 of the way into the new year and this challenge, what are your thoughts? How are you doing? Have any of your books blown your mind? Any major duds leave you diving for the alternate pile?
Below, you’re going to find the infamous Mr. Linky widget. IF you have completed any reviews for books on your challenge list, please feel free to link them up here so that we can easily find your posts, encourage one another, see what progress is being made on all these piles, etc. Also, feel free to link-up to your own checkpoint post, should you decide to write one (not required – but feel free!)
Now, Onward! And Happy Reading!
LINK UP YOUR REVIEWS March 21 – April 20
