Avid readers struggle with the same issue – “too many books, too little time”! Many of us tend to collect books “to be read” – on bookshelves, bedside tables, other piles around the house, in the car, at the office and anywhere there is space. Along with the paper copies, there are shelves on iPads and lists kept virtually on the Goodreads site. Before these books get out of control it is time to delve into your existing reading list and enjoy!
For the month of October – the challenge is to halt the deluge of new books, read what is in our TBR piles and lists and tackle these piles of books. For those of you in the CanadianContent Goodreads group, join the challenge and track the books that are read from this growing mountain. For followers of this blog, feel free to join the inspiring Goodreads group or join the challenge by commenting below on the books read from your “TBR pile” for the month of October.
As a follow up from the September “Back to School” reading challenge, I enjoyed reading:
- A Number of Things (Jane Urquhart) – a book that should be read in school
- The Diviners (Margaret Laurence) – a banned book
- Never Cry Wolf (Farley Mowat) – rereading a book that a I read in school
Unfortunately, I ran out of time and did no finish A Midsummer’s Night Dream which remains in the TBR pile but the experience was rewarding in reflecting back on my school days and enjoying some Canadian authors.
I did tackle my TBR pile but I ended up buying a few more books before the end of October, 2 ebooks and a paper book that I got signed by the author. Oh well.
I confess…. me too!!!
