Mount TBR Challenge - Quarterly Check-In

In an effort to make in a dent in my rather large to be read pile, I decided to participate in the Mount TBR Challenge this year.  This challenge encourages readers to tackle the books sitting on their TBR pile as of 31 December 2011.   I decided to aim for the Mt. Kilimanjaro level, which means my goal is to read at least 50 books from my TBR pile this year.  

I'm not off to a particularly strong start, but I anticipate my TBR pile selections will increase in the months ahead.   Here is my progress so far, as well as a link to my review (if applicable):

(1) Dark Road to Darjeeling by Deanna Raybourn -  4 Stars
(2) The Running Vixen by Elizabeth Chadwick - 3.5 Stars
(3) Lady Macbeth by Susan Fraser King - 3.5 Stars
(4) The Kingmaking by Helen Hollick - 3.5 Stars
(5) The Forgotten Legion by Ben Kane -  4 Stars
(6) Worth Dying For by N. Gemini Sasson -  3 Stars (no review)
(7) Henry Tilney's Diary by Amanda Grange - 3.5 Stars (no review)
(8) Rivals in the Tudor Court by D.L. Bogdan - 3.5 Stars 
(9) A Girl's Guide to Witchcraft by Mindi Klasky - 3.5 Stars (no review)
(10)  Fool's Errand by Robin Hobb - 4 Stars (no review)


  1. You're not too far off the mark...you'd only need 12 1/2 to be 1/4 of the way up the mountain. Really, really close!

  2. Oh, that sounds like a great challenge. I have so many books on my tbr pile.

  3. Good luck with the challenge! You're going great! And thanks for checking out my post.

  4. Ten books! That's off to a great start. I've only done 4 for TBR challenge (one review to come tomorrow.) I set my bar pretty low but your progress is inspiring!
