Mount TBR Reading Challenge

I've thought about doing some reading challenges for a couple of years. This is the year! The pile of TBR books around here is a perennial problem, though hopelessly unsolvable, since I've already bought three books this year. They're now available for next year's TBR challenge. (Though maybe I'll read them right away. Ha!)

For this year, I'll aim for 36 books in the Mount TBR Reading Challenge. Mount Vancouver, half in the US and half in Canada, is suitable enough symbolically for me, and going over my reading list from last year, 36 previously unread books from around the house is enough to be a challenge, but not an unsurMOUNTable one.

I may try a couple of other challenges, but I'll do one per post.

2.) Gardner's The Case Of The Deadly Toy
3.) Greeley's Happy Are The Meek
