Bev has asked that we answer question one and then two if we feel inclined. (I do. :-))
1. Tell us how many miles you made it up your mountain (# of books read). If you've planted your flag on the peak, then tell us and celebrate (and wave!). Even if you were especially athletic and have been sitting atop your mountain for months, please check back in and remind us how quickly you sprinted up that trail. And feel free to tell us about any particularly exciting book adventures you've had along the way.
I signed on for Mont Blanc which was to read 24 books owned by you since before the 1st. January 2015. Happy to report that I planted my flag on the top of the mountain around about mid-December. All of the 24 books were good, particularly those I read in the first half of the year, for some strange reason. I look at the list and get a really good feeling about A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge, Gaudy Night by Dorothy L Sayers, Helliconia Winter by Brian Aldiss, The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney, Agatha Christie's autobiography, Clear Waters Rising by Nicholas Crane, all read before May. Books read after that were fine too but that few months at the start of 2015 seemed to be particularly good. Odd.
2. The Year in Review According to Mount TBR: Using the titles of the books you read this year, please associate as many statements as you can with a book read on your journey up the Mountain.
