And just like that, that’s it for another year – 20 Books of Summer ends tomorrow and what a blast it’s been.
Although I didn’t finish my challenge this year I am still counting it as a win.
I read and review 11 of my initial 15 choices and 3 of my additional 5, so I’ve reviewed 14 in total. On top of that, I’ve read Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry but haven’t reviewed it and am halfway through Veronica by Mary Gaitskill. So, I kind of, almost, sort of completed 15 books of summer, right?
The reason I’m calling this year a win is because, on top of those 15 books, I read another 10 books over the course of the summer! I’ve quite surprised myself with the amount of reading I managed, so I’m not going to worry too much about the challenge not being complete.
What’s the point in having slack challenge rules if you can’t apply them to yourself?!
It’s been heartening to see so many of you completing your challenge over the last week or so. Over 100 of you wonderful people took part and thank you all for making it a great summer.
So, how did you all do? No matter what the outcome, I hope you all enjoyed taking part. It’s a really important part of my reading year and helps me focus and knock some books off the 746, so, all being well, I’ll see you all again next year!
