20 Books of Summer Challenge

  1. I attempted the 20 Books of Summer challenge last year and unfortunately, I didn’t complete it.  Anyway, the challenge is hosted by Cathy over at 746 Books.

So, what’s the challenge all about? It’s simple –  read 20 books or however many you can from June 3rd thru September 3rd.

1 Summer
3 Months
13 Weeks
91 Days

I would love to read all 16 of the books listed, but the reality is I probably won’t have the time. On June 17th, I’m starting an accelerated summer class session. Continue reading

Sizzlin’ Summer Reads

I, totally, forgot about this until I saw Kristilyn’s post over at Reading in Winter. When I saw it last year I made a ‘mental’ note, albeit not a very good one, of this challenge because I wanted to give it a whirl. The challenge is called 20 Books of Summer and is hosted by 746 Books.

So, what’s the challenge all about? It’s simple –  read 20 books or 15 (in my case) or however many you can from June 1st thru September 3rd.

📚📚Over 95 days or 13.5 weeks, I’ll read 15 books📚📚

Ulysses (Episodes 5-8) by James Joyce

I’ve decided to split Ulysses up over 18 weeks. That’s 1 episode a week. I want to make sure to through it and understand it without tapping out, so I figured the slow and steady way is the best plan of attack.
