Well, here we are, it’s 1 June and the first day of 20 Books of Summer!
I have to say I have been overwhelmed (literally!) by all your support and sign-up posts – we now have over 100 people taking part across Twitter, Instagram, You Tube and blogs – which is quite amazing. You can check out all the sign up posts on the Linky website. If I haven’t commented on your sign-up post yet, do drop me a note in the comments and I’ll pop over.
There’s still time to join in if you fancy lining up 10, 15 or 20 books to read between now and 1 September.
So to the important questions.
What’s the strategy and what are you starting with?
I’m just going with whatever the mood takes me and am starting with Laura Lippman’s What The Dead Know.
I know from years of experience, that these first few weeks are the exciting ones where we are all brimming with enthusiasm and determination. By the time we get to week 7 though, it’s a different story!
So, it’s a long game we’re playing here but there’s lots of support so don’t forget to use the hashtag #20BooksofSummer20 to check in with everyone. I’ll be posting at the end of each month and at the halfway point (14 July) to see how everyone is doing.
I’ve also created a 20 Songs of Summer playlist on Spotify, so if you need a soundtack to your reading, I’ve got you covered!
Good luck everyone and happy reading 🙂
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
