Mount TBR Challenge 2021: 1st Checkpoint

I’ve been doing quite well with Bev’s Mount TBR Challenge so far this year. Up to the end of March I read 14 of my TBRs, so I’ve climbed Pike’s Peak and have made progress up Mont Blanc. Bev asks us to complete one of more questions. I’ve answered two::

Post a picture of your favourite cover so far.

I love this scene on the cover of James Rebanks’ English Pastoral. And the book is wonderful. It is inspirational as well as informative and it is beautifully written.

And secondly, Which book (read so far) has been on your TBR mountain the longest? Was it worth the wait? Or is it possible you should have tackled it back when you first put it on the pile? Or tossed it off the edge without reading it all?

Orlando by Virginia Woolf had been on my TBR shelves for nearly 5 years. It was well worth the wait. It’s such a fantastical novel, spanning 500 years. There are copious literary, historical, and personal allusions; a book steeped in history showing how the passage of time had changed both the landscape and climate of England along with its society.

  1. That is a lovely cover, Margaret. I can see why you liked it so well. And well done on getting so far along in the challenge. I like the idea of concentrating on the TBR ; I think it’s so easy to forget about the books one has when those ‘oooh, shiny’ new books come out…
