TBR Count as of 7/1/19: 1,052
TBR Count as of 7/31/19: 1,025
⏬A brief recap of the rules for both challenges can be found at the bottom of this post.⏬
Books Crossed Off Virtual TBR (these are books I did not own but that were on my GR TBR list) in July:
Books Crossed Off Physical TBR (these are books I either owned a physical or digital copy of [prior to the start of 2019] but that weren’t necessarily on my GR TBR list):
Books read that applied to neither challenge (because of course I would do this):
I also went through and did a bit of cleaning on my TBR list. I think that when I first discovered Goodreads I was worried that I’d run out of things to read so I went a little hog wild with adding things to
Books removed from my TBR because I’ve either lost interest, or don’t think I’ll ever read it:
I got about halfway through my TBR during this round of cleansing (575) so stay tuned for what I remove (if anything) for the next go around.
I will say that as far as July goes, I finished all 3 of my July book club books (I wasn’t going to participate in the 4th one’s meeting so I didn’t count it as one I needed to read) by July 8th, which is UNHEARD of for me. Usually I’m up late the night before the meeting trying to finish it. Or reading it in my car right before we meet up. Unfortunately I haven’t received either of my book exchange books yet and I’m still waiting on my RBTW book club book to arrive at the library, but I have started my office book club book for August already. Hopefully I’ll finish 4/4 book club books in August.
Either way, I’m feeling pretty good about the status of my TBR for July. I read a physical book that I’ve had forever in both June and July, so I’m going to try to make an effort to read one in August too. I’ve got a couple of small ones I can probably fit in to help me catch up on my Goodreads challenge (behind by 17 books). I’m trying to kill all the birds with the stone here.
Wish me luck!
