It’s a day early for this post, but I’m travelling for the next couple of days…

I’m still trying to figure out how to structure and schedule the Mt. TBR update posts this year, but I think I’ll resort to comparing the current Mt. TBR to the original Mt. TBR at the beginning of this year, and then list some of the running stats.

The difficulty, of course, will be that I am adding new hardcopy purchases to Mt. TBR, too. We’ll see how it goes.

January was an awesome reading month. Bad weather, quite weekends, and a general desire to hibernate, have led me to get cracking on the Mt. TBR project.

End of January Mt. TBR:

Start of the Year Mt. TBR:

The Stats:

Books read: 16 (a lot of them were either really short or were comic books!)
Women / Men / Team*: 62% / 27% / 11%
Fiction / Non-fiction*: 70% / 30%
% of original Mt. TBR read*: 23%
% of live Mt. TBR read*: 17%

(* – of all books read since 01 January 2018)

Link to the original Mt TBR (2018) Reading List.

Rules – same as previously – are that I picked a stack of physical books off my shelves at home which I would try to read over the course of the year. Any new purchases are added to the pile. If I pick another physical book of my shelves, I get to take one off the pile and put it on the shelf – as a swap.
