Books in that list that do NOT count toward the Mount TBR Reading Challenge:

This one was a library book.  I've read 10 of the 48 books from my own shelves that I hope to read this year.  Not bad, seeing as this is only two weeks into January.  Two of them were books I'd already started before last year ended and some were short books, so (nope) I didn't exactly read eleven big books in two weeks.

Great start to the reading year! It's a nice variety of books and they are from your own TBR, which is wonderful. It feels so good to see the shelves get emptier.
