I can’t wait to post my 2012 stats, but to have things in order, I first need to tell you a bit more about my December reading.
I read 9 books, 3 being non-fiction works.
Total of 1985 pages , that is 64 pages/day, not too good, bit considering all that’s going on in December, I’m happy with that.
And I listened to 1 audiobook, with a total of 7:28 hours, and an average of 14:15 mn/day. Actually I’m in the middle of Désirée, a huge audiobook, so that’s why the total for December is not too high.
