2014 Mount TBR Challenge - Sign Up

This challenge is being hosted at My Reader's Block.  

I have a slight problem with books (as my following list shows). I can't help it when I see a free book, or a deal to get a book at a really low price.  Being a librarian I also can't help grabbing books from the book donation piles. 

My goal is to at least clear about half my pile so I'm aiming for Mt. Vancouver which is reading 36 books from my TBR Piles. 

Wish me luck!

  4. No. I don't know about them, I don't really care for the dolls (younger cousin is obsessed with them) so I don't know how I'll like the books.

  5. I have heard that the second series of books is better than the first.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

In the Hot Zone by Kevin SitesNight by Elie WieselTom Clancy's Ghost Recon by Daivd MichaelsMacbeth by ShakespearA Million Little Pieces by James FreyWolf Hall by Hilary MantelAn Inconvenient Truth by Al GoreUnder the Dome by Stephen KingLawless by Nora RobertsThe Sinatra Files by Tom KuntzThe Help by Kathryn StockettThe Dante Club by Matthew PearlFord County by John GrishamThe Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel BarberyThe Postmistress by Sarah BlakeA Beautiful Mind by Sylvia NasarHide & Seek by James PattersonA Vintage Affair by Isabel WolfGorgeous East by Robert Girardi Most of these books were ones that I either had read or wanted to read.

The Marked Men series by Jay Crownover



Real series by Katy Evans



Vintage by Susan Gloss



I Love This Bar by Carolyn Brown

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky. I have held some great exhibitions and my work has found a home in many parts of the world. Like writing, it is a gradual process and will take the time it tak…
