Bev asks:
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.

So far I’ve read 21 books from 24, so I think I’m doing very well!

Mount Blanc is 4 810,90 m high. Divided with 24 is 200, 45 m times 21 is 4 209,53 m. In miles that’s 2615,68.

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.

Hard one! I read four books made from two of my favorite TV shows (Babylon 5 and Buffy) and a couple of last books from series. So I’m going to go with Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

B. What has been your most difficult read so far. And why? (Length? Subject matter? Difficult style? Out of your comfort zone reading?)

None of them were difficult.
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?

These books haven’t been long in my TBR. I think I’ve had the oldest about two years. That’s Issui Ogawa’s book. I liked it even though it didn’t blow my mind.
