Mount TBR 2019: My Sign-up



January 2019 kicks off the eighth year of the Mount TBR Reading Challenge. I still don't feel like I've moved those mountains at all. Once I hit middle-age, I found that I just can't climb like I used to. I'm huffing and puffing my way to Everest in 2018, but I'm determined to keep my goal at 100 books again for 2019. I'll still be dreaming of building a space ship to Mars and planting that flag on top of Mount Olympus--but the challenge commitment is complete with a flag on the peak of Everest.

You're invited to join me in taming those TBR mountains; just click on the link above for the full description and rules.
