June has been very nice weather, which means more hiking, and less time for reading.

Here is what I read in June:

4 books only!!
with 1,280 pages, that is:  42.6 pages/day, lowest average of the year so far
I have not finished any audiobook. I’m almost done with All The Light We Cannot See, and am really enjoying it

1 mysteries:

  1. The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair, by Joel Dicker – certainly the best mystery I have read this year so far! The link goes to my vlog when I received the book, not my review yet!

1 nonfiction:

  1. Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer, by Vicki Lesage – ebook. sorry Vicki I have not yet taken time to post my review of your awesome book!

1  literary fiction:

  1.  Kira-kira, by Cynthia Kadohata – for the Japanese Literature Challenge

1 play:

  1. The Jedi Doth Return, by Ian Doescher
