April #TBRYear10 Check-In!

Hello, TBR Pile Challengers! 

We have made it through the First Quarter of this year’s TBR Pile Challenge! We already have more than 90 reviews/checkpoints linked up on our Mr. Linky, which is pretty great! How are you all doing with your selections? Any major successes (or total DNFs?)

You may have heard that The Book Depository has announced they are closing, so that’s no longer an option for the mini-challenge prizes or annual grand prize. I’m going to have to rethink the prize options, as I’d prefer not to do much ordering through you-know-who. Perhaps a gift card to a local bookstore of choice? Let me know if you have any ideas!

Progress: 3 of 12 Completed

Things have really slowed down on the reading front, over here. This teaching semester has been extremely busy, and I’m involved in some service projects that are time consuming as well. We’ve also spent the last two weeks with my parents, who were in from out of town, so there has been absolutely no time for reading this month. With about 6 weeks of work left this term, I doubt I’ll have too much accomplished even before next month’s check-in, but after that, I’m going to have plenty of time for the rest of the year, and wow, am I looking forward to it! That said, I am currently reading my fourth book (Hesse’s Steppenwolf) and did get all of my completed reads’ thoughts posted, so technically I’m still on track as long as I can post thoughts for Steppenwolf sometime this month.

How are you doing?


Below, you’re going to find the infamous Mr. Linky widget. If you read and review any challenge books this month, please link-up on the widget below. This Mr. Linky will be re-posted every month so that we can compile a large list of all that we’re reading and reviewing together this year. Each review that is linked-up on this widget throughout the year may also earn you entries into future related giveaways, so don’t forget to keep this updated!

Mini-Challenge Two is Coming in May!

  1. I am on track so far with 4 books read. One was an alternate on my list, but I think it still counts. I also have 2 other books from my list currently in progress.

    • That’s a good idea! I’ll check to see if they ship internationally. This reminds me to check Indie Bound, too!


  2. I’ve read 4 so that’s good (and reviewed) but notice I’ve left the longer ones, oh dear! Sounds like you’re doing well, I’d say you were on track, with the summer to look forward to. . .

  3. Pingback: TBR YR 10 – The Moon is a Harsh Mistress – Robert A. Heinlein – kepagewriter

  4. I’ve read and reviewed 4 so far. I really enjoyed The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. In fact, only one so far has been disappointing, Not sure what I’m going to read next but I may go for Evelyn Waugh.

  5. 7done (one being alternate) so, so far so good. No real idea about an alternative to bookdesipository perhaps waterstones ( they are based in several country but no idea if they do gift card)
