#QuotsyFeb19 Day 4: Because #quarrel corrodes the spirit, especially when done 24/7. Haven‘t read Hemingway‘s short stories yet. Maybe next year (or the year after that hehe).

post image

I just saw I reached Mt. Kilimanjaro for #MountTBR - whoo hoo🙌🏻 I‘m aiming for Everest, & I can still make it. But August & September have been slow for me. Time to get in gear.
I need a readathon, I think 🤔📚

julesG Congratulations! 1y
Texreader Way to go!! 1y
Tkgbjenn1 That‘s awesome! And there appears to be snow! 1y

Finished this #shortstory collection over some #coffee on a slow #Saturday #morning. Thanks for sending it, @Magpiegem

I know #Hemingway isn‘t for everyone, but I really enjoy his writing. It was nice to spend some time with him again.

(BTW, I can tell you how to get a set of those awesome woven coasters AND support a great cause at the same time!)

Magpiegem 😊😊 I‘m really glad you enjoyed it! One ticked off your TBR! Xxx 2y

Being able to recuperate from surgery by reading outside in the sun isn‘t so bad. Except for the surgery part.

#hemingway #mountains #sun #springtime

Cinfhen Hope you have a quick recovery 2y

If only it weren‘t so windy, it‘d be a perfect day to read outside....finally. It seems this winter will never end.

Another book to read during recovery, with beautiful get well flowers in the background.

Got this book from @Magpiegem as part of our Easter swap. Thanks again!!

CouronneDhiver At least you‘re back at home - much nicer to recover in your own environment than the hospital 2y

Pop sugar reading challenge #14 The snows of Kilimanjaro-weather element book 📚

post image

Most of my MountTBR selections are doing double duty for other challenges. Although I know I‘ll read others too, as my shelves and Kindle are bursting, I tend to pick by mood rather than planning it all out. #MountTBRChallenge @DivaDiane

DivaDiane Me too! #TBRList 2y
DivaDiane Nice to see poetry on your list! 2y
Lcsmcat @DivaDiane I read poetry anyway, but there‘s also a poetry challenge for 2018 hosted by @Natasha.C.Barnes if you want to join in. 2y

Hemingway (or his book designer) was a fan of #Hatsandotherheadgear #UncannyOctober day 22

Well, it's Hemingway. There is some lovely language in this, some beautiful moments. Downbeat at moments, but with joy in some simple things. I found it a calming read - something about the rhythm of the language, I suppose.

Day 2: title story from Hemingway's Snows of Kilimanjaro. I bogarted this copy ($1.25) from my father in the late 80s when I supplemented my college studies with attempting to become a Hemingway completist, which is one of the only things my father and I have in common. #shortstorymonth #papa

This repost is for @LazyOwl or anyone else wondering about the #MountTBR challenge. Check out the Mount TBR group on Goodreads, as well. I'm climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro as we speak. 😉

LazyOwl Thanks 😄 3y
Bambolina_81 Now this is a challenge I need to get on board with 😂 3y
LibrarianRyan I'm only climbing mt. Vancouver. In the beginning you could not count ebooks but now u can 3y

Hemingway once said "There is no friend as loyal as a book" which I believe is why I find myself in the current situation because I never let a book go.

post image

I did it. I joined #MountTBR on Goodreads and I'm shooting for Kilimanjaro. Who else is doing this? 🏔🏔🏔

BookishFeminist This is a thing?! I feel like I should join just because of the sheer number of books I have yet to read that I own. 3y
brilliantglow I am! I signed up for mount blanc because I wasn't sure what I'd decide to set my reading goal at. But I already know I'm going to exceed it so Kilimanjaro is likely where I'll actually end up. 3y
Melwilk I have to check this out! 3y

jessberk13 After reorganizing my shelves today, I've decided that I'm going to try for Mt. Ararat (at least) and then hopefully Kilimanjaro! 3y
Alfoster I actually just joined the Goodreads challenge today since so many of you do! I set my goal for 100 books so we'll see! Still trying to navigate through it (remember I'm a techno-phobe and need lots of help!😝😝😝) 3y
8little_paws I'm essentially doing this via a few book challenges. I want to read at least 75 from my shelves. 3y
Emily92Bibliophile Just signed up! Aiming for Mt Everest but if not El Torro will suffice😊 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @jessica @LeahBergen I look forward to our party atop Kilimanjaro at year-end! 3y
vivastory I should sign up for mt Vancouver . At least 24 of them would be books I own I'm going to read for litsyAtoZ. I'm sure I'll be reading at least 12 more throughout the year. 3y
DGRachel I'm setting myself up for success by aiming for Mt Blanc - that's 1/2 of my total Goodreads goal, which I think is reasonable. 🤓 3y
Reagan This is amazing! 3y
Godmotherx5 I started small with Mount Blanc. 3y
BookBabe 😊👍🏻🗻 3y
WanderingBookaneer I'm going all out: Mt. Olympus! 3y
mrp27 Ohhhh... I like this challenge. Wish I had seeing it earlier but maybe I can squeeze it in. 3y
shanebeth This is a great idea! I may join up. 3y
Well-ReadNeck 🙋🏽 Mt Everest -100! @WanderingBookaneer 🙌🏻👊🏽👏🏽 3y
Lacythebookworm I'm climbing Mt. Arafat! 48 books. Hopefully I'll go higher 🙌 3y
ErinC So smart. You convinced me. Most of my #LitsyAtoZ books were already on my TBR so this is the perfect challenge for me. I just joined Mt Blanc! 3y
BostonBookAddict I just signed up!! Aiming for Kilimanjaro! 3y
rubyslippersreads @elkeo @jessica @LeahBergen @BostonBookAddict Okay, you talked me into it. I'll try for Kilimanjaro too. 🏔😄 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @rubyslippersreads WOOHOO! Party at the top! 🏔✨🏔✨🏔✨ 3y
BostonBookAddict @rubyslippersreads its ambitious for me, I fully admit! 3y
Karkar This is a neat one! 3y
jessberk13 I'll bring the champagne 🥂 3y
prowlix I didn't know this is a thing but I'm definitely in! I'm trying really hard to read my own books this year 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I'm assuming by TBR, it means actually sitting on my shelf or devises already bought and waiting TBR, not my wishlist TBR where I dump anything that sounds good on a list...LOL!! But yes, this sounds like a challenge I need to do to clean out my shelves!!! 3y
drbethandherkindle This sounds great! I'm going to join you on #MountTBR 3y
Smangela Thanks for sharing! I'm joining too! I NEED to read the books I already own especially since more are coming with my BOTM membership lol 3y
Amiable I climbed Mount TBR on Goodreads in 2016--it definitely helped me chip away at the stacks and piles of books around my house! It forced me to be more conscious of all the times that I get distracted by the shiny new books, even though I have literally hundreds already sitting around waiting for me to pick them up. I made it to my goal of Mount Ararat (48) and then kept going part of the way up Kilimanjaro (got to 55). I'm climbing again in 2017! 3y
Karen3 I just joined right now. Climbing Kilimanjaro as well! 3y
pppooraikul Sounds interesting! I've never seen it on goodreads before. Thanks for sharing. ☺️ Normally I set my goal to 50 books but I guess this year I'll try to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with you guys! (edited) 3y
pppooraikul Or maybe I should start for Mt. Ararat. 😂 3y
Bookchipmunk I am! I started at Mount Blanc but hope that I can go higher since I had 60 physical and 39 digital unread books on January 1 🤓 3y
LeahBergen @BookishFeminist Join! You'll be reading from your TBR anyway (is what I'm telling myself!) 3y
LeahBergen @brilliantglow Yeah! Kilimanjaro! 3y
LeahBergen @Melwilk 👍🏼👍🏼 3y
LeahBergen @jessica yes!! 👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @Alfoster Look for Mount TBR under groups 😃 3y
LeahBergen @8little_paws I thought the same thing 😀 3y
LeahBergen @Emily92Bibliophile Yes!! 👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @DGRachel Totally! 👍🏼 3y
LeahBergen @Rjanke Isn't it?? 😃 3y
LeahBergen @Godmotherx5 Yes!! 👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @WanderingBookaneer Wow!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @mrp27 Squeeze it in to your other ones (I'll be overlapping my challenges 😀) 3y
LeahBergen @shanebeth Yes!! 👍🏼 3y
LeahBergen @Well-ReadNeck Woo hoo!! 👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @Lacythebookworm Yes!! 👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @ErinC That's what I thought, too. I was trying to do all the other challenges with my TBR so this will just help to keep me going! 😀 3y
LeahBergen @Karkar It is, isn't it? 😃 3y
LeahBergen @prowlix Yes!! 👏🏻👏🏻 (and me, too! All the Litsy photo challenges made me realize just how many good UNREAD books I own) 3y
LeahBergen @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes. I believe the "rules" are that it must have been bought by you before Jan 1st (cuz I checked! ?) 3y
LeahBergen @drbethandherkindle Yay!! 👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @Smangela Yes!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @Amiable That's awesome! I'm really hoping to make a dent in mine (but I'll probably buy twice that amount over the course of the year 😂) 3y
LeahBergen @Karen3 Yay!! You're joining our Kilimanjaro party (see above 😂) 3y
LeahBergen @pppooraikul Yay!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @Bookchipmunk Awesome! 👏🏻👏🏻 3y
LibrarianRyan So you had me intrigued. I checked this out. What I don't like is the "no library books#. My TBR pile has like 4000 books on it. But I wonky own the books I bought since I switched jobs. When I was still a library director I only allowed myself to buy books my library didn't and when I was done they went on the library shelf. If I could count library books I could hit mars. I guess I'll just stick to #beat the Backlog. It only has 11 parts ? 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @LeahBergen I went and read the whole thing after this, joined, and aimed at Mt Ararat, which for me is about 1/2 the number I challenged myself to in my reading goal. 👍 3y
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen @Amiable That's my problem--I keep buying! 😂 3y
rubyslippersreads @LibrarianRyan I agree with you about no library books--I always think of my Mount TBR as consisting of anything I want to read, no matter how acquired. 😊 3y
LibrarianRyan Okay. U have me talked into it. I'm going to try for Vancouver. How do I declare that. 3y
mrp27 @LeahBergen Think I will! I went through my challenges and I can definitely combine this with the read harder challenge 3y
Amiable @rubyslippersreads @LibrarianRyan There are a ton of reading challenges out there that are "read books from your list of books you want to read." Which would include library books. But that's not the point of this challenge. The Mount TBR Challenge is specifically intended to help you clear your shelves of books you already own. That's the sole purpose of it. 3y
rubyslippersreads @Amiable @LibrarianRyan I hope that doesn't mean we have to get rid of the books after we read them. 🙀 Although I guess that wouldn't be a completely bad thing, to make room for new acquisitions. 😺 3y
LibrarianRyan @rubyslippersreads I keep very few of the books I read when I'm done. I either put them on a library self if I know they are needed, or I send them to the Salvation Army after school/summer program I only keep ones I would read again. Used to get laughed at for being a librarian with no books on her shelf at home. 3y
LeahBergen @LibrarianRyan Oh, I'm glad you joined. Yeah, the whole "no library books" things WOULD be hard for librarians like you! ? 3y
LeahBergen @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Woo hoo! 👏🏻 3y
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads That would be a "nope" for me. Like you, I COLLECT books. Mind you, I have no problem getting rid of thrillers or current fiction that I won't read again. BUT NOT OUR PRETTY BOOKS, RIGHT?! ? 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @LibrarianRyan I declared it on here, and then went and joined the Goodreads group "Mount TBR" and joined there as well. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @LeahBergen That sounds like me too...I have some I'll pick up at the library sale, read and then donate back a sale or two later. And then there are some I hunt out (in hardcover if I can find it) for my collection. 3y
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen Absolutely not! Each pretty book is "my precioussssss." ? (edited) 3y

My 2017 #BookishResolutions. To keep myself honest though I need to keep an eye on page count (looking at you delightful but short graphic novels!).
Also excited to do #hpchapteraday!
I usually just read what I read but I am excited to start the #MountTBR challenge and dig into/climb over the growing TBR!
Kilimanjaro or Bust!

RealLifeReading You can do it! Happy new year! 🎈🎆🎊 🎉 3y
Reviewsbylola You got this!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 3y
hpchapteraday Yay!! We are excited too to have you on board! 3y

Actually, my #2017MostAnticipatedReads are already on my TBR shelves glaring at me for neglecting them.
A little while ago, @kmdartist made the excellent point that all of these photo challenges just make it obvious what we already have and need to read. Agreed!
Then @Well-ReadNeck linked to a Goodreads challenge made just for this: Mount TBR. While not one for challenges, this spoke to me & my TBR cheered.
So I am going for Kilimanjaro. 🏔📚🏔📚

Blair_Reads Love the name of this challenge! 3y
MatildaBaggins I am joining this challenge! I have so many unread books 😱 3y

Godmotherx5 Good luck reaching your goal. 3y

Putting together 2017 reading challenges as I try and get as many 2016 books in as possible! I didn't reach my goal of 52 books--currently at 40. I had a pretty long reading slump this fall. I hope to be on top of things for next year! All my lists will be on my blog, which I also hope to keep up with! https://thegreyhoundstationblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/27/2017-reading-challenge-...

BookishMarginalia May the force be with you, and of course, the odds be ever in your favor 😉 3y
Librariana Oh, it looks so pretty all typed up! 😄 And with @BookishMarginalia 's blessing, how can you go wrong!? 3y

Battery Park Book Exchange in Asheville, NC is one of the coolest bookstores I've found while traveling. It even has a champagne bar and dogs are welcome! #getindie
