MTBR - March

Hello,

I seem to have forgotten it was now March, on the plus side you have had 3 extra days to reduce your MTBR count.

So how many books have you got to read now.

Read two books in February, one was a library book.

January 1 - 212 (62 registered by others)
February 1 - 214 (62 registered by others)
March 1 - 214 (63 registered by others)

And added 5 books today.... Oooops. One set in Iran, one in Sudan. Couldn't resist. Books that fits the 666-challenge is always good!

I hope I can manage to get 3 books read in March.

since a lovely bookbox was sent to me.

Up from 1064 to 1083, with a jump up to 293 ABC TBRs. Again, I'll try to make a bigger dent in that #.

The other splits are 418 physical books registered by me and 372 unread on Kindle

574 is up by 2 on last month, up by 6 for the year

Hmmm...never counted any lurking library books, as they usually are in & out again within a week or so.

I agree, but that being said, they are books that I need to read in order to clear my shelves, so that’s why I included them.

I got a book read in a day because I was stuck in the snow on the motorway for 7 hours.

Ouch! You have my fullest sympathy! Which motorway was that?
We were supposed to be driving home from a short break near Grange over Sands yesterday, a trip involving crossing the Pennines. With the M62 and A66 closed, trouble on other possible routes and scary news reports of people stuck in cars and trains in various places, we decided to stay put. Fortunately for us, although maybe not for them, some people cancelled their bookings, so the hotel had a room come free for us.
We got home safely this morning!

I'm so glad you did. I was in a bus on the M80. Fortunately I wasn't one of the people who had to stay there overnight. I left the office at 1.30pm and my complete commute took 9.5 hours. I got to the end of the street when the car got stuck so I walked the rest of the way. That was Wednesday and my car got home today thanks to 3 men who dug me out. This was definitely worse than 2010 for me.

It's good to hear of people helping others. I'm sorry you had such a nightmare commute!

for lowering your TBR last month.

I was down by two myself on the 27th, then made the mistake of stopping by the friends of the library sale on the 28th.

Those library sales are dangerous territory for me too!

That’s so cute how your mt. TBR is only in the double digits. Keep it up and you’ll have us all beat😀

Still ploughing through some more difficult ones.

Feb 2018 - 51 with 16 registered by other book crossers

Thanks to some very generous bookcrossers who sent me loads of birthday RABCK's, I thought I would be way over my total for the beginning of the year, but not actually that bad .... I managed to read lots in Feb as well as received lots :)

01 FEB 2018: TBR = 1159
01 MAR 2018: TBR = 1165

I guess I'm really not good at reducing my TBR pile. Maybe march will be the month where I will at least not aquire more than I read.

Jan: 180 (168 print, 12 audio)
Feb: 182 (171 print, 11 audio)
Mar: 184 (174 print, 10 audio)

Good luck with that!

you are in good company as that appears to be pretty usual here! However I suspect people's totals would be higher if they weren' t on here!

Here are mine

Jan 496
Feb 484
Mar 484

So I'm holding steady, although I have a couple I need to register and then I'll be losing ground!
