This is one of two reading challenges I’m doing this year and this is my monthly checkup to see how I’m going at hitting my target for this challenge.
I committed myself to the Out of Breath level which means I need to read an extra 6-10 books, or roughly an extra 1,500-2,749 pages. Last year I read 27 books, so that means this year I’m aiming to read 33-37 books.
In August I finished reading three books, which is one less than July which isn’t too bad.
- Do You Come Here Often? by Alexandra Potter
- Big Fat Manifesto by Susan Vaught
- Winter’s Heart by Robert Jordan
This gives me a total of 29 books read so far this year. So I’ve already read more books than I did last year which is great, I feel like I’ve achieved something already! Just a few more to go and I will have smashed my target.
I am also currently reading/listening to a few books, though I haven’t had as much reading time as I would have liked the last couple of weeks at least because I’ve been so busy with travel and Nutrimetics work.
- Dracula by Bram Stoker
- Puberty Blues by Gabrielle Carey and Kathy Lette
- The Martian by Andy Weir
Are you doing this challenge as well? How many books did you read in August?
