6 in 6

Six in Six is a meme hosted at The Book Jotter. I discovered it by way of Hopewell's Public Library of Life and Words and Peace.

"The idea being that as the end of June approaches and we are then halfway through the year, let us share the books we have read in those first 6 months. In fact let’s share 6 books in 6 categories, or if time is of the essence then simply share just 6 books. Whatever combination works for you as long as it involves 6 books. Of course the same book can obviously feature in more than one category."

There is a HUGE list of categories from which to choose (visit the Book Jotter for the list). If you want to join in with your own lists you can do so any time during July 2022.
