FINAL RECAP:

With a busy week at home and on the world scene, I read less than expected, but I managed to:

  • finish 2 books
  • read 555  pages, which is an average of 79.2 pages/day, slightly above my 2014 daily average
  • listen to 3:15 hours of audiobook, which is an average of 27 mn/day, slightly above my 2014 daily average (23 mn)
  • participate in 4 daily challenges, which is more than my usual I think

    After her husband’s death, Katharine’s life and comfort is books. One day, a young man comes around, they start speaking literature and she helps him with the sonnets he is trying to write. His name his Will, William Shakespeare. His attraction has more to do than just words…
