20 Books of Summer 2022:
it’s a wrap

Thanks to 746books.com I participated in this challenge from June 1 to August 31, for the third time.

Here were my original 20 books:

20 books of summer a

I am very happy, because I stuck pretty close to this list (rather unusual for me, lol), with 16 done and 2 more started.

AND I actually read almost as many books that were NOT on that original list:

I finished 7 in June, 12 in July, and 9 in August

Statistics wise, that’s:

28 books (7 on paper, 10 ebooks, and 11 audiobooks)
That’s a total of 4,929 pages (average of 53 pages/day)

And 95H46 of audio time (average of 1H02/day).

If I convert these audiobooks into pages, that’s 3,399 pages (average of 36 pages/day).
So the total in pages is 8,328 (average of 90 pages/day).

My original goal was 5,946 pages (average of 64 pages/day), so I’m very happy with this summer reading.

Genre wise – a nice mix

My conclusion: you REALLY need to read all the others!

  2. That was a great summer of reading, and you enjoyed so many of your 20 Books of Summer. Well done.

    I only read 12 of my 20 Books of Summer during June, July, and August, although I finished one more on September 1. But I did read a total of 26 books in those three months, so that was good. 13 of them I read in July, which was very strange.


  3. Wow! Well done on reading a whopping 16 books off your original list and then reading nearly the same amount that were not off your list! I managed to read 6 books off my list and then four other books, which means I did meet my goal of 10 books altogether. 😎
