Summer 2015 Challenge –
Sponsored by Cathy at 746 Books
Challenge: To read 20 books of your choice this summer.
Also: I’ll likely read about 45 or 50 between June 1 and Sept 1 at 15 per month, but I really want to include these 16 and I’ll add 4 or a few more later: – The list includes one of the two books I’m currently reading but nowhere near finished (less than 1/2 way). If it’s got a link it means I’ve either got a good start on it or actually finished.
(SEE PRESET LIST BELOW ** )
Results of Challenge: By Sept 4 I’d finished all but 1 of the books I’d chosen but I’d only written down 16. Yes, I read more than 4 more including several on the new Man Booker Long List. (That was a major challenge – to read all the Booker Long Listers available before the short list was released – I did it – 2 of the 13 books were not available here in time so I read 11 books for that.)
Totals – June 13 books, July 9 books and August 16 books which totals 38 boos – way fewer than the 45 – 60 I’d challenged myself to. (I was in North Dakota the entire month of July – that accounts for a huge part of that low number.)
