Mount TBR 2019 Final Checkpoint

Bev’s Mount TBR Challenge has come to an end. My aim was to get to the top of Mont Blanc, which was to read 24 of the books that I’d owned prior to January 1, 2019. I did that by June and continued climbing, conquering Mt Vancouver (36 books) and making strides up Mount Ararat with a total of 41 TBRs read, just 7 books short of the peak.

Bev has set an additional challenge – to complete this list of Words to the Wise According to Mount TBR of familiar proverbs and sayings by using the titles of the books I’ve read this year on my journey up the Mountain. 

A stitch in time…[saves] The Shadow Puppet

Don’t count your chickens… [under] The Wych Elm

A penny saved is…. An Advancement of Learning

All good things must come.. (to) The Seven Sisters

When in Rome…  [beware of the] Blood on the Tracks

All that glitters is not… Wild Fire

A picture is worth… Cold Earth 

When the going gets tough, the tough get … Mary Barton

Two wrongs don’t make … Bitter Lemons of Cyprus

The pen is mightier than …  The Seagull

The squeaky wheel gets…  Life After Life

Hope for the best, but prepare for… The Rúin

Birds of a feather flock… [to] The Man on a Donkey

  1. Well done, Margaret! You’ve really done an impressive job with this challenge! And what a clever use of those adages to share some of the books, too! I really like that idea.
