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:
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
And 16 of these were classics
The oldest book was published in 1865, the most recent on July 16, 2022
Mystery: 10 – favorites: The Bride Wore Black / Confessions
Literary fiction: 6 – favorite: Ensemble, c’est tout
Scifi: 4 – favorite: Upgrade
Nonfiction: 3 – favorite: L’Enfer numérique
Historical fiction: 3 – favorite: So Big
EStories (audio subscription): 2
Print review copy: 2
Translated into English: 5
(2 from the Japanese, 2 from the French, 1 from the Russian)
I was disappointed with only #2, 11, and 19.
My conclusion: you REALLY need to read all the others!
