2020 Beat the Backlist June Update

It’s been a little while since I’ve done an update on any of my challenges, so I am going to try to get on top of that. The updates help motivate me on things I’d like to accomplish. I was doing all my updates in just 2 posts each month, but those posts would be quite long now. So, this post is dedicated just to my Beat the Backlist Challenge.

If you’d like to check out all the info on the challenge, you can check that out here ~ Beat the Backlist 2020.

Any genre, any format, any length.
Any book published in 2019 or earlier is fair game.
Re-reads count. And you don’t have to own the book!

I thought it would be interesting to break down my reads per year for this one.

This list is currently incomplete. I still have books to add to it, and I’d like to link up with reviews and some other stuff. But, all of that will take me a while. So, I figured I’d go ahead and post what I have. Then I can just keep adding to it for upcoming updates. Looking at the year breakdowns I wasn’t surprised at all. The books gradually dwindle down the farther from this present time they get. I do see that I want to add in more classics, though. I still have a lot that I haven’t yet gotten to that I’d still like to read. But isn’t that always the case??

Happy Reading,
