Once again, 746books.com organizes a special challenge:

20 Books of Summer
June 1-August 31

I loved it last year, so this will be my 2nd participation.
To be honest, this is not really a challenge, as I have already read 70 books this year, that is, an average of 14 books per month. So I shouldn’t have any problem reading 20 books. Anyway, this is a great opportunity to challenge myself to read from my TBRs (mostly physical shelf).

And it is a nice way of connecting with other book bloggers, and possibly hearing about great books I have not heard about.

So here is the file with my 20 books.
Feel free to copy the format if it’s of any help for you.

I will update it as I go along:

How many of these have you read?
Which one is your favorite?

FINAL RECAP

This past week didn’t have great surprises, so I was able to take good chunks of reading time every evening after dinner, including during the weekend, which is unusual for me.
I ended up reading 827 pages (I include here the equivalent in pages from books I listened to, and I had cleaning projects and various house chores around the house, so I had a lot of listening time), which is an average of 118 pages/day (my goal was 75 pages/day).
That’s more 302 more pages than my goal.
So obviously, I will raise my goal next time for Bout of Books 32 (August 16-22).

Plus I finished 6 books (1 print, 1 ebook, and 4 audiobooks), so I am very happy with that.

I didn’t participate in the reading-in-place, which distract me too much.
And I only did one Instagram challenge, not being very inspired by the others.
