February, though only 28 days short, has been dragging, with all that snow coming in the Chicagoland. I am ready for you Spring, where are you? Thank God there are books to spend those cold nights.
I’m not sure why all I read amounts to only 7 books, with a total of 1906 pages, that is, 60 pages/day.
And I listened to 1 audiobook, a long one of 6:34 hours, which gives a 14mn/day. This is because I started a much longer audiobook, The Painted Girls, not quite yet finished.
This is not counting the books I have translated from the English to the French: 2, with a total of of 171 pages and about 60,000 words.
Here are the books I read:
3 historical fiction:
Paris Adieu, by Rozsa Gaston – ebook
