Mount TBR Reading Challenge Wrap-up 2018

mount-tbr-2017
I’ve already posted the books I read this year and my favorite books of 2018, but I wanted to share this final wrap-up of the Mount TBR Challenge.

Bev hosts the Mount TBR Challenge to encourage us to read what we already have on our shelves, and every twelve books is one more level.

I had only committed to to Mount Blanc (24 books). But I made it past the next level at Mt. Vancouver (36 books), with a grand total of 39.

Bev also proposes taking the first part of some well-known sayings and pairing them with titles of some of the books we read:

A stitch in time…[keeps] The Pattern Artist in business.
Don’t count your chickens..[in] The Secret Garden.
A penny saved is…. Emma’s Gift.
All good things must comeWhen the Morning Glory Blooms.
When in Rome… [I long to come] Back Home Again.
All that glitters is not…[is not] Julia’s Hope.
A picture is worth a… [a] Journey to the Center of the Earth.
When the going gets tough, the tough getTea With Emma.
Two wrongs don’t make…[a] Mountain Between Us.
The pen is mightier than.Invincible Louisa.
The squeaky wheel getsSomeday Home.
Hope for the best, but prepare forScrapping Plans.
Birds of a feather flock…[at] My Father’s House.
