Big Book Summer Challenge 2020 Wrap-up


Today ends the Big Book Summer challenge 2020! This challenge is hosted by Sue at Book by Book.

The rules are simple: Read any book of 400 pages or more.

Here's what I stated in my sign up post for this challenge: I am not sure how many 400+ page books I'll read, especially given how pathetic my pandemic reading has been, but here are the ones I am considering. And, they are all currently on my TBR shelf so I'll feel that I am reducing that, which is good, too.


Here's how I actually did and what I read. Last summer I read 8 and this time around it was 6, which is pretty good given how much I was working and that we are in a world-wide pandemic. I didn't get to two of the books I had planned on reading, but they are still on my TBR shelf so I'll get there eventually. Thank you, Sue, for hosting!
