TBR Book No. 18

Welcome to July, which I've dubbed A Month of Adventure! What better time to explore new places and experiences than the height of summer? Let's start off with Wind, Sand and Stars (Harcourt, 2002; orig. 1939) by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Ever since I first read his classic Le Petit Prince in French class, I've wanted to read more by this extraordinary author. I picked up a copy of this little volume years ago and somehow never got round to reading it. My used copy got so dusty and decrepit that I replaced it with a better one. And now I'm finally going to read it, spurred on by my own recent flying adventures.

So what do you say, blog readers? Come flying with me!

That's right: I've committed to reading all the books on my TBR Shelf this year--and blogging them! Click here to read the reviews I've posted so far.


  1. Oh, I've heard of this. Sounds interesting!

  2. How come my TBR pile keeps growing and yours is dwindling? Not fair! But I do admire what you are doing.

    1. I appreciate the admiration, Rosi, but my TBR pile isn't actually dwindling. Just the pile I'd accumulated before this year. But yes, I've bought more books since, and added scads more to my want-to-read list, so I'm basically shoveling during the snowstorm! :)
