July Reading Goal: 20 Books

Remember my laughably long summer reading list? I've decided to attempt my own mini challenge to tackle it...20 books in 31 days.  Can she do it?  That remains to be seen.  Cheer me on as I attempt to read almost a book a day.  And if there is anyone out there that knows a counting widget that will update as I complete books, please send me a note or point me in the right direction.

Here goes...


  1. I see some great books in those stacks! I am about to begin Insurgent today. I hope I remember the characters from Divergent!

    I've just emailed you the html code for the progress bar so look forward to seeing that on your site!

  2. Wow, 20 books in one month? I'm impressed! I usually average about 6 books a month!

    Good luck!


  3. Helen, thank you for the code. Look for my progress report as I make my way through 20 books this month.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
