July Challenge

Categories Books, Projects
Reading Time: 2 minutes

I read 20 books in June. Which is a bit ridiculous but also pretty nice. I’m only 15 books away from hitting my original 100 books target, so it looks like I’ll have to up it a bit!

I tend to read books on my Kindle whilst I’m at work and I took it to Portugal to save on luggage space so I’ve managed to amass a rather large stack of library books at home, languishing in the corner. It wouldn’t be so bad but I keep thinking of new stuff I want to reserve and adding more to the list. Oops.

I need to get these books read and back to the library before they lynch me so July is going to be Library Books Only Month. The rules are as follows:

* I can only read books from the library (Duh)
* I’m not allowed to add any new books to my reserve list or check out any new books until I’ve cleared 50% of the list

I currently have:

  1. The mystery of the strange messages by Enid Blyton
  2. Meltdown by Ben Elton
  3. Double Cross by Malorie Blackman
  4. In Search of the Missing Eyelash by Karen Mcleod
  5. The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O’Farrell
  6. The Distance Between Us by Maggie O’Farrell
  7. An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin [book group]
  8. The Scarlett Letter: A Romance by Nathaniel Hawthorne [book group]
  9. I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith
  10. The Almost Moon by Alice Seobold
  11. The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht [book group]
  12. The Importance of Being A Bachelor by Mike Gayle
  13. Zero History by William Gibson
  14. X-Men:First Class by Jeff Parker [graphic novel]

Eep. Three of those are book group books so I’ll be concentrating on them first. Four of them are classed as children’s or young adult so I’m hoping they won’t take long to read either and one is a graphic novel which I’ll be able to zip through in a lunchtime probably. Hopefully by the time August the 1st rolls around I’ll have finished them all but July is going to be a pretty busy month in terms of events and parties so we’ll have to see. I’ll let you know how I get on 🙂
