Mount TBR 2016 challenge

I shan't be doing many reading challenges next year but I always find Bev's Mount TBR ones fun and useful, even though I probably replace those books I read each year with new ones, so am basically getting nowhere... Anyhooo, moving swiftly on, next year it's Mount TBR '2016' of course.





The challenge levels are as follows:

Pike's Peak: Read 12 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Blanc: Read 24 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Vancouver: Read 36 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Ararat: Read 48 books from your TBR piles/s
Mt. Kilimanjaro: Read 60 books from your TBR pile/s
El Toro: Read 75 books from your TBR pile/s
Mt. Everest: Read 100 books from your TBR pile/s
Mount Olympus (Mars): Read 150+ books from your TBR pile/s

Rules can be found here.

I'll be doing exactly as I did this year and going for Mont Blanc, which is to read 24 book from my tbr pile. This worked very well for me this year; even though I didn't read that many from the pile I specifically set aside, the books all came off my tbr pile and that's what counts.

Yet again, I've created a pile of books that I want to read from and this is they: (Click for a larger view.)



The sharp-eyed may notice a bit of a theme going on here, apart from the fact that they're all non-fiction that is. Each book is about the British countryside or Britain in general. There's walking, swimming, yachting, even a bookshop on a barge... and goodness knows what else on the shelf... all of it concerned with the UK. I'm not expecting to read all of these by any means. In fact, if I read half a dozen I'll be quite happy as I do have plenty of others I want to get to next year, including some chunky fiction. I'm looking forward to next year's reading already.

I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy all of those. :)
I think so too. :-)
Funnily enough, I was just thinking about your TBR challenge this morning, as I started at my TBR bookcase... I'm sure I remember saying I didn't really have enough TBRs to make a molehill - maybe next year is time I joined in. *g*

I've not done terribly well with reading challenges this year - I seem to start off well and then get distracted from them... maybe that's why they're challenges... *g*

I did think I might join in the Dark is Rising readathon though, which started today - it's been ages since I read the whole series, and I do love it, especially The Dark is Rising itself...

Oh, and I'm very impressed at your non-fiction reading, too!

Yes, I recall you saying you didn't think you had enough too. Famous last words? *G*

Me neither re: reading challenges. Two others I joined I've failed miserably at so I'm going to keep them to a minimum next year. TBR is an easy one though so that's fine.

Ah yes, I saw mention of TDiR readathon on FB. Have fun!

Thank you. For me it's a case of finding the *right* non-fiction.
Oh, another challenge! I do so love a challenge...though I think I'll be going with the smallest of the challenges. As it's noted, I can always upgrade later.
I think it's a good idea to go for a lower number and then if you read more that's a bonus. I went for 48 one year... 'mistake'... too much stress! LOL
