I had a lovely break in Somerset, and was surprised by how well my little sale went – I’ll head off to the post office tomorrow, laden with parcels. I’ll see how many books I cull later in the year, and might well bring it back again.
But onto today’s post… We are now in the second half of the year, and I am continuing my quarterly look at how A Century of Books is going. Here was the first quarter’s, where I was on exactly 25 that qualified. My sidebar at the moment announces that I’ve done 44 of my 100, but there are a further six which I’ve yet to review, so… once more, I am precisely on target! 50 books read for A Century of Books; 50 to go. (I have actually read nearer 70 books this year, but the others have been pre- or post- 20th century, or overlapped on my list.)
Links to all the reviewed books are here. And here’s how I’m doing, by decade…
Still a noticeable slump at the beginning of the century, but surprisingly high numbers at the end of it…
If you’re reading along with A Century of Books, or any similar project – how is yours going?
