Mount TBR Checkpoint #1 (Mt. Vancouver)

Uh, oh. Here we are a quarter of the way through the year, and I've only read six of my pledged thirty-six. I've been spending way too much time reading something new and fun that I just saw at the library and not reducing that way too large pile of unread books I already own.

The list is at the original post and though I read the sixth (Where There's Love, There's Hate by Adolfo Bioy Casares and Silvina Ocampo) at the end of March, I didn't post about it until this weekend in April.

Definitely the most pleasant surprise was Guy Gavriel Kay's A Song For Arbonne. I'm more a mystery reader than a fantasy reader generally, but I really liked this one. I have another one on the TBR pile, which will have to get read and soon.

How about a CHART of book titles for a Scrabble entry:

The Case of The Deadly Toy
Happy Are The Meek
A Song For Arbonne
Rogue Male
The Rings Of Saturn

I'll need to read some more books that start with vowels, not to mention an X or a K to improve my score...

I'm doing much better on my Vintage Mysteries Cover Scavenger Hunt, especially Golden Age, but hadn't posted the right items. With those Nero Wolfe mysteries, I could have had a flower, too. Durn...


  1. Thanks for checking in! Hope you can make a bigger run up your mountain for next quarter.
