TBR

TBR = To Be Read  – This is a schedule,  NOT a “wish list,” and it’s updated regularly.  Books get on this list because a reading group nominated them for a certain month.   I also  read quite a number of “unscheduled”  books – just see the home page for recent reads and the months menu (top) for earlier books.
Key:  The date is when I finished,  the link is to my so-called “review.”   RR= reread,   X= obtained,   XX = started & link is to “notes.”  DNF – Did Not Finish.  Grey or ? is unlikely to even start –

  1. Oh, you’re a sneaky one Bekah. I clicked on your link on my blog recently – it was for your 2010 reads – and wondered where on earth you had gone to. Glad you’ve joined the WordPress family. I’ve changed your link on my blog now!

  2. Oh I had to move because Apple is discontinuing their hosting so I looked for something I could work with kinda-sorta. I was all sorts of pissed off at the time but I had to get started or I’d lose more than I’m going to lose. I suppose something may break otherwise but I’m not counting on it.
