Embarrassment of Riches Challenge – February Check-In
Leave your February “Embarrassment of Riches” stats! [I'll post mine later, sorry, I suck, I didn't have time to do this earlier.]
Does starting a book on the TBR pile and deciding not to read it count? The pile just got shorter, right? But I didn’t read it. Okay, so A Bride Most Begrudging doesn’t count. Why didn’t I read it? I explain why here. Short form: I realized it seems to break some rules that annoy me so much I didn’t want to use this book to form an opinion of Christian fiction.
But I did read a different book that had been on my Kindle for a very long time, another book I picked up free somewhere, The Apothecary’s Daughter by Julie Klassen.I liked it a lot. And it counts for both my challenges, historical and TBR. Two-fer!
I also read read 11/22/63: A Novel by Stephen King. That was on my mental TBR list from the time I knew it was going to be published, and I bought it right before the end of 2012 just so it would make it on my official TBR list for this challenge. But does it count as historical? I guess it does, even though I was alive during this history. I am now officially old, right?
That’s only two books from the TBR pile this time.
As for the historical challenge, I also read The Notorious Atherton (to be published in July by Patricia Rice), and listened to Speaking from Among the Bones: A Flavia de Luce Novel by Alan Bradley (1950s England), Passions of a Wicked Earl by Lorraine Heath (not up to her usual standard), Pleasures of a Notorious Gentleman (better than the previous one).
Embarrassment of Riches: 8/24
Bonus round for samples read: 1/50 (still, none this month but I added more samples, this is not quite the way it’s supposed to work?)
Historical: 8/? (I need to check my target. I don’t remember.)
I have yet to read actual PRINT books from my physical TBR pile. Must amend that. However, right now I have library books to read before they get turned in, and also a book to beta for a friend, so need to handle that stuff first!
