I updated my reading spreadsheet and crunched the numbers, which means my July reading stats are out! July picked up a little over June.
Altogether I finished reading 9 books altogether. I read 1694 pages and listened 37 hours and 19 minutes. If I convert the listening hours to pages, then I would've read a grand total of 3117 pages.
The books I read had an average of 339 pages and the audiobooks I listened to were on average 9 hours and 19 minutes long. This means the books on average were slightly shorter than in June while the audiobooks were on hour longer on average.
I read 54% more in July than I did in June. That's good news to me since that means I somewhat pulled out of my reading slump. The next step is to finish reading all these books that started months ago but still didn't finish until now.
Format-wise, I read 5 paperbacks, which is no surprise since 4 of these were books I own. Besides that, I listened to 4 audiobooks.
Targets and Genres
I read 1 non-fiction book, 2 adult fiction book and 6 YA fiction books. Got down to reading 1 classic, 1 historical fiction, 2 science fiction, 2 fantasy, 2 contemporary. The non-fiction book was on photography.
The sources of these books were varied, as usual:
- Bought 3 from Book Depository
- Bought 1 from Aamazon
- Borrowed 1 from the library
- Borrowed 1 through Onleihe
- Borrowed 3 through Overdrive
Reading my own bookshelf still doesn't make up the majority but it's progress, so that's good.
With 68 books read by the end of July, I was 10 books ahead of my Goodreads reading challenge. That's an extra book ahead of June, which means I basically kept normal pace.
Over the past couple of weeks I borrowed a whole bunch of non-fiction books on photography and candy making, so I expect progress soon.
So, this one's completed. Yay! Something to make up for my dismal non-fiction & German books progress. I could up the goal but somehow I don't feel the need to. There are more adult fiction books on my TBR pile, so I don't think I'd need another target to remind me to read more.
