Today seems to be a good time to write another post about my successful battle against Mount TBR – always write about your victories, never about your defeats 😉
So the mountain of around 130 books which had been reduced to 82 books three weeks ago, now consists of 75 books. Not too bad, and though I have felt sorely tempted lately, I only gave in the other day because I could get the first ebook of a series I have wanted to read for a long time for free.
As a result of this struggle, I have all but neglected my reading challenges for months, and now I have finished the Irish Reading Challenge – by reading a second book by Brian McGilloway. Not exactly what I´d call imaginative, but the book was right there on the TBR.
Ireland Reading Challenge
Declan Burke, The Big O (2007)
Tana French, The Likeness (2008)
Brian McGilloway, Gallows Lane (2008)
Colin Bateman, Mystery Man (2009)

Six very good reading experiences, but The Burning is my favourite.
