TBR Pile Checkpoint #9 – September Progress!

2013tbrpilechall

Congrats to last month’s winner, Karen from Karen’s Books & Chocolate!

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!

My Progress:

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

  2. I am very behind with this challenge, I must admit. Only 6 books read. The first half of the year I was on track, but now I am struggeling a bit. I hope to get it in order, because I do want to finish it!

    Kind regards.

  3. 11/12! Now just to get back into a non-fiction reading mood so that I can tackle Freakonomics. For God, Country and Coca-Cola took it out of me, it’s a tome!

  4. 10 of 12? You should not feel good, you should feel AMAZING! I think I’ll join you next year because keeping track of what I read from my TBR pile will definitely help to read more 🙂
