My aim was to climb Mont Blanc and in the process read 24 books. This I finally achieved on the 22nd. December. I got off to a roaring start and was usually 3 or 4 books ahead of where I should have been for most of the year, but I tailed off in the autumn. Never mind, I made it and that's the main thing.
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:
