20 Books of Summer 2022

Once again  746 Books is hosting the 20 Books of Summer challenge. Here's how it works: you make a list of 20 books you want to read between June 1 and Sept 1. You read the books. If you want to change out your list, or only read 10 that's OK.

Here is my list:

  1. 99 Glimpses of Princess Margaret by Craig Brown*
  2. Aunt Dimity and the Duke by Nancy Atherton
  3. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin*
  4. Biography: Fiction, Fact and Form by Ira Nadel*
  5. Bloodline by Felix Francis*
  6. Burning Questions by Margaret Atwood
  7. Fluke by Christopher Moore*
  8. Grave Secrets by Kathy Reichs*
  9. Jingo by Terry Pratchett
  10. Madame Bovary by Gustav Flaubert*
  11. Murder in Mesopotamia by Agatha Christie
  12. NPR's Podcast Startup Guide by Glen Weldon
  13. Pushing Up Daisies by Rosemary Harris
  14. Pyramids by Terry Pratchett
  15. Sentenced to Death by Lorna Barrett
  16. Shades of Earl Grey by Laura Childs
  17. Small Ceremonies by Carol Shields
  18. Sticks & Scones by Diane Mott Davidson
  19. The Stone Carvers by Jane Urquhart
  20. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
The books marked with * I have on my shelves and the rest will come from the library.


  1. This looks like a good list. I plan to include some books for Canada in hopes that I can take part in the Canadian challenge this year. It depends on how many books I decide to put on the list. I may not go as high as 20.

  2. I read 99 Glimpses of Princess Margaret--I'll be interested in your thoughts after you read it. Good list.

  3. Sorry--I forgot to include my blog with the Princess Margaret book comment: Lisa at

  4. Burning Questions is wonderful Atwood being wonderful...and in lovely bite-sized essays and articles.

  5. It looks like you'll be enjoying some cozy mysteries this summer! Good luck!
