AUGUST 2022 WRAP-UP
I only read 9 books this month, which is slow compared to other 2022 months for me, but still I’m happy, as it’s actually a good amount of pages, and I read so many awesome books!
I’m enjoying more and more focusing on my TBRs and classics.
I’m currently 10 books ahead of schedule (74% done) to read 120 books this year.
Also, I’m only 1 book away my 3rd list of classics for The Classics Club, with 136/137 books – in less than two years, instead of the five years projected.
I participated in Bout of Books #35, which gave a good boost to my reading.
📚 Here is what I read in August:
6 in print
= with 2,113 pages, a daily average of 68 pages/day
3 in audio
= 34H33, a daily average of 1H06/ day
3 in literary fiction:
- Jamaica Inn, by Daphne du Maurier – audiobook, counts for The Classics Club
- It Can’t Happen Here, by Sinclair Lewis – audiobook, counts for The Classics Club
- Ensemble, c’est tout, by Anna Gavalda – read with one of my French students
2 in science-fiction:

- De la Terre à la Lune, by Jules Verne, read with one of my French students, counts for The Classics Club
2 in historical fiction:

- The Daughter of Time, by Josephine Tey – counts for The Classics Club
1 in mystery:

This month, it was very very hard to pick 2 winners, I had to pick 3, and this was still very hard!
