Month In Review: July 2020

How on earth is it August already?! Seriously, I’m not sure were 2020 is going, although I can’t deny I’ll be glad to see the end of it. July was all about our home improvement project, as we’re moving next door and the place needed a lot of TLC before it was habitable again (part of the structure is over 100 years old…). I’ve been prepping during July while the workers did their thing; sewing new curtains, a sofa cover and painting bits and bobs to speed things up… The painting has begun in earnest now, so you will probably not see me around much this month or at least until we have finished moving.

  • Number of books read in July: 22
  • Total number of books read in 2020: 157
  • Total number of pages read in July: 7.367
  • Total number of pages read in 2020: 52.592
