2022: June wrap-up

JUNE 2022 WRAP-UP

Reading many books (8 right now) at the same time is fun, but then while you are in the middle of them, the statistics don’t reflect the effort, lol. They will eventually.
I was expecting bigger numbers this month, but I have so many books in process right now…

The good news is I’m currently 9 books ahead of schedule (57% done) to read 120 books this year.

  1. I only read 7 books this month so you are ahead of me! I’m hoping for a better July. Once you finish those 8 books, though, sounds like you’ll have a great July as well😁

  2. I too read several books at a time, though I’m trying to cut back. My daily page count is nothing in your ballpark though. Impressive; though the important thing is that we’re both enjoying the journey.
