TBR Checkpoint #3

It's time for another TBR check-in!  Bev has requirements: 

1. Tell us how many miles you've made it up your mountain (# of books read).  If you're really ambitious, you can do some intricate math and figure out how the number of books you've read correlates to actual miles up Pike's Peak, Mt. Ararat, etc. 

I've now read 21 out of my goal of 24 books, so I'm not doing too badly.

2. Complete ONE (or more if you like) of the following:
A. Who has been your favorite character so far? And tell us why, if you like.
B. Pair up two of your reads using whatever connection you want to make. Written by the same author? Same genre? Same color cover? Both have a main character named Clarissa? Tell us the books and what makes them a pair.
C. Which book (read so far) has been on your TBR mountain the longest? Was it worth the wait? Or is it possible you should have tackled it back when you first put it on the pile? Or tossed it off the edge without reading it all?
D. Choose 1-4 titles from your stacks and using a word from the title, do an image search.  Post the first all-eyes-friendly picture associated with that word.

OK, I'm trying to come up with something, but this is the most ridiculously random collection of book titles ever assembled, I'm starting to think.  And at least half the books are non-fiction, without favorite characters.  

C. The book that has been on my pile the longest is, without doubt, Frankenstein, which I bought somewhere around 1993 or 1994, so a full 20 years.  I should have read it long ago!  It's ridiculous that it took me so long to read it, and it was really good too (except, as noted, Victor Frankenstein's being such a dummy).

D.  Frankenstein:





Charlemagne:


Arthur's Britain:
