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