Mount TBR Update

Bev at My Reader's Block is calling for a check-in post for her Mount TBR Challenge. I signed up for the lowest level of Pike's Peak, which requires 12 books. I have now read 11 titles from my TBR pile:
  1. The Story of an African Farm, by Olive Schreiner
  2. The Man in the High Castle, by Philip K. Dick
  3. The Book of Beasts, trans. T. H. White
  4. Mr. Dixon Disappears, by Ian Sansom
  5. Nightmare Abbey, by Thomas Love Peacock
  6. The Haunted Dolls' House and Other Stories, by M. R. James
  7. The New Road to Serfdom, by Daniel Hannan
  8. Doctor Thorne, by Anthony Trollope
  9. Winking at the Brim, by Gladys Mitchell
  10. Lovely is the Lee, by Robert Gibbings
  11. A Collection of Essays by George Orwell
Since I'm close to completing this level, I'm going to officially upgrade to level 2, which is Mt. Vancouver, requiring 25 titles.

I think The Book of Beasts is the book that has been on my pile the longest. I'm pretty sure I picked it up used in Berkeley, and I haven't lived there since 1997. It's certainly not the only book I bought in Berkeley on the pile, and there may even be ones older than that.

Great job! You'll have this one finished in no time. I wish I could say I was close to completing it.

I think we're right on track! I'm also doing Mt. Vancouver and have finished 11 so far.

I think we're going to make it!
