Mount TBR: Checkpoint 1

It’s time for the first quarterly check-in for Bev’s Mount TBR Challenge (TBRs for this challenge must be books you’ve owned prior to January 1, 2017). Here are my answers to her questions:

  • How many miles (books) up the mountain are you?

I’m still climbing Pike’s Peak, so I’m behind if I want to reach my target of 48 books, ie reach the top of Mount Ararat, as I’ve only read 9 books (see this page for details). I’ve been sidetracked by reading new-to-me books so far this year! 

  • Post a picture of your favourite cover so far

All the Light We Cannot See

  • Title Scrabble: See if you can spell a word using the first letter of the first word in the titles of some/all of the books you have read so far. Feel free to consider “A,” “An,” or “The” as the first word or not as it helps you with your word hunt.

My word: Tablet:

T –The Dead of Jericho by Colin Dexter (Morse)
A –All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
B –The Buttonmaker’s Daughter by Merryn Allingham
L –Last Seen Wearing by Colin Dexter
EThe Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff
TThe Gathering by Anne Enright

  1. This is very clever, Margaret. And I can see why you like that cover so much; it’s beautiful. And as to the TBR, I don’t think any could ever read everything that’s out there…

  2. That is a gorgeous cover. Still working on my post… being defeated by the title scrabble because only having one vowel and a preponderence of Bs and Ws is not helpful. LOL!

  3. Thanks for checking in, Margaret! Nice title scrabble word. Nine isn’t too far off the pace. Hope you can pick up some easier climbing for the next check-in.

    I’m a little slow in my pace as well (and I really thought I was doing better this year–winds up I got distracted by some Library wild flowers along the way).
