2022: July wrap-up

JULY 2022 WRAP-UP

I’m slowly going into reading more of my TBRs, and it pays with fabulous books. So I’m devouring more and faster.
I’m currently 11 books ahead of schedule (67% done) to read 120 books this year.
Also, looks like I’m almost done with my 3rd list of classics for The Classics Club, with 131/137 books – in less than two years, instead of the five years projected.

And I managed to publish as well as visit a good number of posts for Paris in July.

📚 Here is what I read in July:

12 books:
6 in print 
=  with 1,544 pages, a daily average of 49 pages/day

  1. You are really getting through the books! For me it seems like the more classics I read, the more I want to read them and the faster I get through them. Have a great August!

  2. Well, you had a very productive month. Thank you for all your posts for Paris in July. Seems you had time to read a lot on top of that.

  3. I thought I was a fast reader, but you leave me in the shade. And so many challenges responded to! I tend not to, as I find it quite stressful being at the beck and call of lists when there’s so much stuff on my TBR list anyway. Well done anyway!

  4. So glad you are finding it rewarding to dig into your TBR. As usual I’m in awe of the amount and variety of the reading you get through. Glad you could find time for our French readalong, it was great.
