Hello, TBR Pile Challengers!
It is November 15th, which means it’s time for the penultimate challenge checkpoint! I can’t believe we’re nearly to the end of this year, and this challenge. We have 180 posts linked up on the Mister Linky, which is awesome! Remember that all posts linked up for this challenge will be entered into the final, year-end drawing for a $50 gift card to a bookstore of your choice! (Provided it can be sent electronically.)
Question of the Month: Do you have any holiday reading plans? Any specific seasonal titles on your list?
I kept telling myself that I’d get an “October month-in-review” posted soon, which would’ve included my thoughts on the Rimbaud Complete that I read for this challenge (book 11 of 12!). But, I still haven’t managed to get it posted. I did get it drafted, so I’m thinking maybe I’ll get that cranked out during Thanksgiving break, when I have some “time off.” (Ha. ha.) I also have James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk sitting on top of my bookshelf, ready and waiting to be Book 12! I’m pretty confident that I’ll finish my challenge this year, and if I can somehow get through two very large tomes (Poetry Handbook and A Brief History of Nearly Everything during Christmas week, then I might even finish all 14 of 12!
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!
Congratulations to Jane from Just Reading a Book! Her comment was randomly drawn as the winner of a book-of-choice ($20 USD or less) from The Book Depository! Stay tuned for the final end-of-year giveaway ($50 gift card from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or bookstore of your choice.) Make sure you’re linking up all your reviews and challenge posts, as ALL ENTRIES will be entered into the final contest giveaway.
