TBR Pile Checkpoint #7

Adam from Roof Beam Reader is checking up on us to see how we're doing on our TBR Pile books so far this year.  It's the half-way mark and it's time to fess up on how we're doing here in July. So far, I've read ten books from the main list plus one of my alternates.  I'm still waiting for the right moment to go back to The Age of Innocence by Wharton.  It just wasn't doing anything for me earlier this year.....

Here's my list with links to the books I've completed:

 1. Death at Crane's Court by Eilis Dillon (1987) [read 5/23/13]
2. A Private History of Awe by Scott Sanders (2006) [read 4/27/13]

Wow! I can't believe you're almost done. That's awesome!

And I'm sorry to hear that you weren't feeling Age of Innocence. I loved that one... I think I read it about the same time as I read The Bostonians. For some reason, reading those two close together turned out to be a pretty rad experience.

Adam: I got myself a book on tape version of Age. I'm hoping that listening will improve the experience....
