TBR Intervention (2) + Library Loot


TBR Intervention is a weekly challenge hosted by April @ Books4Juliet, Dani @ Refracted Light and Ayanami @ Whatever You Can Still Betray. The goal is to commit to reading at least one book that has been languishing on your TBR pile in an effort to conquer the mountain.

Okay the last two weeks have been epic fail on the one book that set out to read for myself. I read the first 40 pages of The Wolf King and just… stopped. I don’t know if I didn’t care or I want to read more and see if it picks up. Maybe other things.

However, I did polish off From Reverence to Rape (review here) and President Obama’s book The Audacity of Hope, which has been lying around started-but-not-finished for like seven or eight months. I told myself that it would be a good choice since I had already read about 100 pages into it so far. So I did complete a book from my TBR pile… just not the one that I had aimed to.

THE BOOK(S) I COMMIT TO READ:

I may be setting myself up for fail. There’s no way I can read all of these in the next two weeks, right?


Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!


Two books and a DVD this week. I’m hoping the new film of Hoover is a vast improvement upon that old biopic that I watched back in high school. I’ve actually read The Evil That Men Do a long time ago.

  1. Hey FM, we went to see J. Edgar and were not disappointed. It captured the time and place well, plus DiCaprio almost channeled Hoover.

    Re catching up on the TBR…Yays for ya! Hope you have better luck than we do. 🙂 Of course we are visiting the local Library Sale again today, so that doensn’t help The Cause a bit. heh

  2. You finished two books instead of one! That’s a win even though they weren’t the ones you picked last week. That’s absolutely ok because you knocked off two! =) And don’t worry about listing up three books, I usually do that hehe. And I think Ayanami is right, I have a good feeling that you’ll finish at least one of them. Good luck and enjoy your books. You surely pick some interesting titles. 🙂

    • I’ve made a decent dent in Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, three chapters in one evening. It’s a very promising book. I’ve kind of been on a binge of reading books that I bought on a whim and didn’t know if I’d want to keep later.

Dear reader, won't you share your thoughts?
