Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

Challenge Complete: Bookish TBR


Challenge: TBR Pile
Jan 1, 2014 - Dec 31, 2014. 
Hosted by: Bookish
For more information and to sign up click here

Basic Requirements: Read the unread books already on your shelf. Nothing from 2014. No ARCs. Any format, any length.

There were six levels to this TBR Challenge, and I'm signed up for . . . Married with Children . . . and planned to read 50+ books.  I have just finished the 51st book from my TBR stacks and met my commitment. Since I've got my own Mount TBR Challenge to meet (100 books), there will be more coming from the stacks--but for now I can check this one off as done.
