Mount TBR: Final Checkpoint

It's time for that final post on the Mount TBR Challenge, and Bev says:


1. Tell us how many miles you made it up your mountain (# of books read). If you've planted your flag on the peak, then tell us, take a selfie, and celebrate (and wave!).  Even if you were especially athletic and have been sitting atop your mountain for months, please check back in and remind us how quickly you sprinted up that trail. And feel free to tell us about any particularly exciting book adventures you've had along the way.
My goal was to read 24 books, and I exceeded it by reading 29.  Some of them were really great, and a few were kind of meh.  Dirt was meh.

2. The Words to the Wise According to Mount TBR: Using the titles of the books you read this year, see how many of the familiar proverbs and sayings below you can complete with a book read on your journey up the Mountain. Feel free to add/subtract a word or two to help them make sense.  

A stitch in time...[saves] The Treasure of the City of Ladies

Don't count your chickens...[before the] Steppenwolf [eats them].
A penny saved is.... (a ticket in) The Lottery
All good things must come... (to) The Broken Citadel
When in Rome... (visit a) Lady of Quality 
All that glitters is not...  Dirt
A picture is worth... The Castle of Wolfenbach
When the going gets tough, the tough get...Further Afield
Two wrongs don't make...  Half a Crown
The pen is mightier than....  The Man in the Iron Mask
The squeaky wheel gets... (a)  Storm in the Village
Hope for the best, but prepare for...(being) Down and Out in Paris and London
Birds of a feather flock...(to) The Heart of Mid-Lothian


As always, thanks to Bev for hosting this great challenge!
