Hello, TBR Pile Challengers!
I hope your summer (or winter) is going well. We are now officially in the second half of our annual challenge, and I’ve seen and read a lot of awesome updates and reviews for challenge books. We’ve got more than 140 links posted! Thank you for sharing!
As promised in June, this month’s checkpoint comes with the third of four planned mini challenges. I hope you’ll all take the opportunity to play the game and have a little fun. It doesn’t matter how far you are into your challenge, this time! Anyone who pre-registered for our challenge and linked up their list on time, way back in January, can enjoy this one. See below for details.
Uh oh! It’s clear to see that I have stalled completely. Since last month (well, since May, to be accurate), I haven’t done any new challenge list reading and still haven’t reviewed the two books that I did read but hadn’t written anything about. I’m going to have to get moving! I find myself suddenly in a position where I’m falling behind instead of being well ahead, where I’d been most of the year. Oops!
Since the Guide to Poetry I’m reading is so long (and such slow reading, intentionally so), I also think I’m going to have to pull another title from my list to read simultaneously, if I hope to continue making well-paced progress. I’m leaning toward James Baldwin, because who wouldn’t?
Below, you’re going to find the infamous Mr. Linky widget. If you read and review any challenge books this month, please link-up on the widget below. This Mr. Linky will be re-posted every month so that we can compile a large list of all that we’re reading and reviewing together this year. Each review that is linked-up on this widget throughout the year may also earn you entries into future related giveaways, so don’t forget to keep this updated!
Book poetry! Can you create a poem using the titles of the books on your TBR Pile Challenge list (finished or unfinished?) Give it a shot! The “best” poem entry, left in the comments of this checkpoint post, will win a book of choice, $20USD or less, to be shipped from The Book Depository! So, get creative, and good luck! (P.S. Best is entirely subjective. I’m picking whichever one I happen to like most.)
