An interesting coincidence

On Friday, I mentioned that I don’t seem to read much in the month of July and in fact, pointed to only 4 books that I read in this part of July over the last 13 years or so. Well, I noticed an interesting coincidence involving those books that I have read in July: they all seem to be long books:

  • Executive Orders (476,700 words)
  • Truman (460,300 words)
  • Shogun (537,600 words)

And now, of course, The Count of Monte Cristo at 483,000 words.

So, although I don’t read a lot of books in July, those that I have read all seems to be among the longest books that I’ve ever read. Weird.
