Reading With Chuckles

I have renamed my TBR Reading Challenge and changed it back to Reading with Chuckles as it sounds better, especially at times when I have no specific challenge running. So this is where I'll share what I read and abandoned each week, and I'll give the odd update on the state of my poor TBR! It does suffer at times...! The link under the book takes you to the Goodreads page for that book so you can decide whether to read it, and see my reviews when they are posted.

FINALLY the Reading Slump is over! Yea! Since I got back from my unexpected holiday, I have managed to get some reading done! I am pleased to have finished 5 books this week. They are all non fiction and based on mountain climbing disasters. I'm considering whether to stick with the theme for this week or try and get back into the fiction. I don't suppose it matters as each book read is one off the tbr...

  1. YEA! for the end of the reading slump. I had one over the weekend. I didn't really care for the book I was reading and finally made myself finish it yesterday. Plus it seems that we ran all weekend so there wasn't a lot of time left for reading that I wasn't exhausted from the heat and running!

    1. Slumps of any kind are horrible! I'm just in the non fiction mood now so I'm reading on with some more mountain books!

  2. Ah, I'm sure it feels very good to be over a reading slump! Glad you could get through a bunch of books, and now we can check out your reviews!

    1. It's a relief! Before this week I think I'd completed one book in the last 6 weeks! I hate it when I don't want to read. Still, I'm back on track now which is the main thing.
