July Book Blowout

Mrs S from Blue Archipelago is hosting her very first reading challenge...and it's a good one that anyone can participate in! The rules are:
  • The rules are simple - read as many books as you can between July 1 and 31 - and then by August 7 post a list of all of the books you read on your blog. Reviews are not required to take part.
  • How do I join in the fun?You can sign up any time between today and July 14 - just because I’m a bit slow to announce this!
  • To join you need to post about the Book Blowout on your blog - and set yourself a target number of books you will try to read - go on challenge yourself!
  • Use the Mr Linky below to link to that post so we can all see how many books you’re taking on in the Blowout
  • Post a list of the books you managed to read by the deadline of August 7 to complete the challenge
This year I have been averaging between 15 and 17 books per month, so in order to try and stretch myself I am going to aim for 18 books read. We'll see how we go with that though.

There are a few other details about what to read etc in this post.


  1. I might give this one a go - I know I won't manage 18 maybe 10 at a push!

  2. Wow - 18! I decided on 10 for me. Good Luck!

  3. Thank you so much for posting this! I have signed up on the website and added it to my blog. Thanks again!

  4. Wow! You are a prolific reader. Good luck. Maybe stay away from those 800 page fantasies this month.

  5. Actually, I realised this morning that I might not have quite as much reading time as I normally do this month because I am expecting to drive to work for two weeks instead of catching the train...whoops!

  6. What? You mean you can't drive and read at the same time?

  7. I can, but I just don't seem to get as much read! I can usually get about 20 pages read on an average drive to work with all the stops at the traffic lights and in the traffic!
