Mount TBR 2017 Final Checkpoint


It’s time for the final checkpoint in Bev’s Mount TBR Reading challenge 2017:

My aim was to scale Mt Ararat (ie to read 48 books) but I only made it to the base of Mt Vancouver, reading 25 books, as once again I got side-tracked by reading books that I bought/borrowed during the year. I still have a few reviews to write.

The Words to the Wise According to Mount TBR: Using the titles of the books you read this year, see how many of the familiar proverbs and sayings below you can complete with a book read on your journey up the Mountain.

A stitch in time saves … The Taxidermist’s Daughter
Don’t count your chickens… [on] The Other Side of the Bridge
A penny saved is… The Kill Fee
All good things must come… [to] A Dedicated Man
When in Rome… [go to] The Gathering 
All that glitters is not… The Eagle of the Ninth
A picture is worth …  All the Light We Cannot See
When the going gets tough, the tough get…  Wives and Daughters
Two wrongs don’t make… A Necessary End 
The pen is mightier than… Caedmon’s Song 
The squeaky wheel gets… [to an] An Uncertain Place
Hope for the best, but prepare for… The Dead of Jericho
Birds of a feather flock… [to]  A Death in the Dales

My thanks to Bev for hosting this challenge!

  1. I really like the way you’ve completed those saying, Margaret! Very clever! It’s very difficult to get through the TBR, isn’t it, when there are so many other books out there. I give you credit for getting through what you did. All the best for 2018!
