2012 Mount TBR Final Check Point
Wow. We're almost done with 2012 and it's time to get ready for the Final Mountaineering Checkpoint. Where does the time go? I'm ready to hear how all our mountain-climbing buddies have done out there on Pike's Peak, Mt. Ararat, Mt. Everest....whichever peak you've chosen. Checkpoint participation is absolutely voluntary and is not considered necessary for challenge completion.
For those who would like to participate in this checkpoint post, I'd like you to at least complete the first of these two things. And if you feel particularly inspired (or generous about humoring me this holiday season), then please do both.
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 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 quickly you sprinted up that trail. And feel free to tell us about any particularly exciting adventures you've had along the way.
2. Using the titles of the books you read this year, please fill in "My Life in Books 2012":
One time at band/summer camp, I:
Weekends at my house are:
My neighbor is:
My (ex) boss is:
My ex was:
My superhero secret identity is:
You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry because:

When I don’t have good books, I:

And what do you get for all that hard work? The Checkpoint will close at 11:59 pm on Monday, December 31. On Tuesday I will crank up the Custom Random Number Generator and pick a winning climber. He or she will have the chance to add to their TBR stack via my gently-used book vault (prize list will be sent). This prize is the only book given to you in 2013 that may count towards a 2013 TBR climb.
Even if you're not in the mood for a prize or if you got distracted by pretty scenery or side trails (library books, ARCs, what-have-you), I'd love to have you check in and tell us how your 2012 mountain climb went!
