30 Day Book Challenge

30 Day Book Challenge | August 2021 | Results

I am doing a poor job of reading at the minute. I set myself a 30 Day Book Challenge for August 2021 and I only manage to read 8 books, 1of which wasn’t in the challenge. Also, I set myself this challenge to stop myself from buying books… well that didn’t happen either.

On a positive note though, the books I read this month were pretty good.

I’m finding it harder to read physical books as opposed to ebooks and audiobooks, and I think that’s because I’m more on the go at the minute. I only have a short span of energy to read before going to bed, and lying on my side with a paperback isn’t as comfy as using my kindle or having an earplug in.

On the plus side, I did start a lot of books this month, so I’m hoping September will be a good reading month. I just need to find the time to read… although with what I’ve got scheduled in September I’m not sure if that’s going to be possible either.

We’ll have to wait and see. What did you read in August? Let me know in the comments below.
