Hi, Hey, & Hello There, all TBR Pile Challengers!
It is July 15th, which means we have crossed the half-way point and are now officially on the downslope for our 2013 TBR Pile Challenge! So far, the overall progress and participation in this year’s challenge has been outstanding! I really have been impressed by you guys – even just reading one or two of your twelve, to this point, is great. Keep at it!
Where I’m At: I have read 9 of my required 12 books. I have made absolutely ZERO progress in the last two months, but I will blame that on my recent relocation, plus reading some chunksters like Don Quixote and The Odyssey, as well as working on events like The Beats of Summer, The read-along of To Kill a Mockingbird, and, of course, the ever-popular and soon-to-be here Austen in August!
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
Book #8: Shine by Lauren Myracle
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!)
