20 Books of Summer 2016

20 books summer 2016 746 books

Joining Cathy at 746 Books
20 Books of Summer Challenge
once again.

Naming my 20 Books of Summer would end in disappointment as I’m sure
to edit my list enroute to  Sept 5th closing.
So, I will name books already on my summer ARC list
plus authors I’m sure to read and audiobook listen
to give a semblance as to what the rest of my participation will include;
which allows me the reading freedom this free spirited reader prefers…
Hoping that satisfies everyone and host, Cathy, about my participation.
She’s not a tough host requiring strict adherence to expectations,
I can assure you!
Don’t be intimidated in joining in.  You can even choose your reading totals
or goals to 10 / 15 / 20 as fits your summer reading plans.
Cathy’s reading 20 by female authors.  Mine are as well,
with addition of 1 male writing team member.

Plus the fact my reading is influenced by
JUNE as AUDIOBOOK MONTH  –  PARIS in JULY  –  AUSTEN in AUGUST –
and BIG BOOK SUMMER for 400+ page reading.
Be bold and join the lineup for the June 1st start.  I’ll be reading and tweeting
@_eHope with #20b00ksofsummer to identify progress
