Hi, There, TBR Pile Challengers! And Welcome to Another Checkpoint!
It is September 15th, which means we are now officially in the final quarter our 2013 TBR Pile Challenge! So far, the overall progress and participation in this year’s challenge has been outstanding! I have been impressed by you guys – some of you are even finished, already!
Where I’m At: I have read 10 of my required 12 books – so I’m feeling good! This might be the first year in the last few where I manage to complete all 12 books on my list (although I have some hefty books left to read, so I’m not going to get ahead of myself, here). I keep getting distracted by some fabulous new releases (such as the Salinger biography that I’m currently reading), so I don’t know if I’ll get to all 14 books on my list, but I will definitely read the main goal of 12!
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
Book #10: Persuasion by Jane Austen
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!)

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
