Mark Baker (carstairs38) I'm just now joining the group, but I successfully completed my climb last year. Actually, I double my original Pike's Peak goal. But this year, I'm aiming for Pike's Peak again, at least initially.

And I'm off to a pretty good start already.

1. Zero-Degree Murder by M. L. Rowland

2. The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

3. Scene of the Climb by Kate Dyer-Seeley

Mark Baker (carstairs38) Thanks so much. I need to get a good start since later in the year, my TBR pile is loaded with books I've bought that year.

message 9: by Mark (new)

Mark Baker (carstairs38) Thanks! And even faster than last year! I might be tempted to go for the next level, but I am afraid that as the year goes along, I will get more and more distracted by books published this year.

message 10: by Jessika (new)

Jessika (jessika_56) Yeah, I know what you mean. But a strong start does help!

Mark Baker (carstairs38) Believe me, I am not complaining. :)

Two peaks done!

message 34: by Mark (new)

Mark Baker (carstairs38) Yep! I like setting challenges low in case something comes up that cuts into my reading time, but it is always nice to exceed them.

Mark--don't feel bad about not being able to fit your titles to my little fill-in-the-blank option on the wrap-up post. Just bask in the accomplishment of climbing Pike's Peak!

message 41: by Mark (new)

Mark Baker (carstairs38) Thanks! I tried. I really, truly did because I thought it would be fun. Maybe next year.
