Reading My Height in Books #12

Hello!

It is time for my final update of my 2021 challenge. I had to change location of the book stack because I could no longer keep it upright without it leaning on against a wall.

Sadly, I failed the challenge. The final stack came to 64 inches and it needed to be 67 inches. I was so close but I just came short.

Here is the year in full.

Maybe, I will try the challenge again another year.

Hello!

I must admit I am starting to panic that I might not finish my challenge. I only have December left and that is usually quite a busy month for me work wise.

Building the massive stack was very difficult as I was fighting to stop it falling over. It now involves me holding it up and my husband helping to build the stack.

Only 6 books were added this month and sadly some of these were rather thin books.

The stack now measures at 52 inches high. 15 inches to go and last month I only read a total of 3.5inches! The stack doesn’t count my digital books so I could find a way of including those to help the total.

Here are the pictures from the rest of the year.

15 inches to read before the end of the year. Wish me luck.

Hello!

It is time for the latest update of the enormous book stack. I must admit it is getting quite scary now when I assemble it and the pile in the corner where they are all stored is even scarier.

9 books were added to the stack in October. I’m laughing in the photo because my husband was making me laugh with his photographer impressions.

The new height is 48.5 inches! Just 18.5 inches to go.

Here are the pictures from the previous months.

Hello!

It is time for another instalment of Reading My Height in Books. Another 4 books have been added to the stack.

The height of the stack is now 41.5 inches. That just means I have 25.5 inches left to go and I think I will be able to manage this, all being well. The dissertation is finished now and that means I have been enjoying a little bit more reading time.

Here are the pictures from the previous months. Look at that book stack grow!

Hello!

I thought it was time for the monthly update on the massive book stack of all the books I have read so far this year.

Another 4 books have been added to the pile.

The height of the stack is now exactly 39 inches which means I just have 28 inches to go. Fingers crossed I can manage it. I think once my dissertation is complete then I will hopefully read more books.

Here are the pictures from the previous months.

Happy Reading.

Hello!

My two best friends have been asking when the latest update would be for Reading My Height in Books so I thought it was high time I updated them.

This month I only read 4 physical books and one tiny Ebook but thankfully two of these books were rather thick so hopefully it has helped with the height.

So here is the latest stack picture.

The height of the stack is now 33.5 inches which means I am now exactly half way! I’m still hoping I will complete the challenge but it all depends how my reading goes over the next few months.

Here are the pictures from all the previous months this year. Look at that stack grow!

Hello!

It is that time again! So the massive stack of books is getting rather precarious and this time the photo involved me having to stand behind the stack to stop it toppling over. I currently prefer reading big books at the moment so hopefully that will help the stack grow.

I read 5 physical books this month so that has helped the height.

So here is the new stack. Apologies for the crazy hair it is a bad hair day. Lyra also decided to join the fun.

The new stack is 29.5 inches high! Just 37.5 inches to go, still haven’t reached the half way mark.

Here are the pictures from the previous months. Look at that stack grow!

Reading My Height in Books #5

Hello!

It is time for an update on my challenge. I must admit this month I have been getting quite excited about how high the pile has been growing, I almost thought it was at half way. However, when I took the picture I soon realised my mistake. My darling husband has worked out a way of counting the digital books I read. Amazon lists the dimensions of physical books, so I can use the dimensions off Amazon to work out the height of the stack with the digital books as well. I will work this out and include them in next month’s total.

I read 4 physical books in May and thankfully some of them were quite thick books.

So here is the new pile.

The new pile is exactly 24 inches high. Just 43 inches to go!

Here are the pictures from January, February, March and April.

Hello!

Yes, it is that time again, it is time for the monthly update of Reading My Height in Books. I keep plodding along hoping I will manage the challenge but I will be honest, I’m already behind on my Goodreads challenge and know full well that time is my biggest problem.

I read 5 books in April and they were all physical books so that has helped the height. So here is the new pile.

The new height is 18.5 inches just 48.5 inches to go!

Here are the pictures from January, February and March.

Hello!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter weekend. I have had a lovely day today reading and going for a walk in the sunshine.

So I thought it was high time for an update on my Reading My Height in Books. I still haven’t worked out whether to include my digital books somehow. I only read one digital in March and it was only 159 pages so not too much of a loss. Thankfully, I managed to read four physical books so that has added to the height of the pile. I have also realised I need to store said pile as it grows through the year so it looks like it will have to hide in a corner of our living room.

So here is the pile!

For some reason I am not looking at the camera but I have never been any good at having my picture taken.

The pile is now at 13.5 inches just 53.5 inches left to go!

Here are the pictures from January and February as you can see progress is going rather slowly.

Hopefully, I can get some more books read this month!

Happy Reading.
