2017: October wrap-up

October 2017 wrap-up

I took some time off this past month, so for me, it means less books read: if I’m on vacation, I walk a lot, in nature or else, and then I’m totally spent and sleep. So this month is my lowest stat for the year so far.
BUT we did listen to 2 audiobooks, as it was a long drive

Here is what I read this past month:

5  books:
3 in print
with 1,112 pages, that is: 35 pages/day
+ 2 audiobooks
with 20H20, that is: 39 mn/day

3 in mystery:

  1. Moriarty, by Anthony Horowitz – audiobook
  2. The Resistance Man, by Martin Walker – audiobook
  3. Concerto pour quatre mains, by Paul Colize

1 in science-fiction:

  1. Artemis, by Andy Weir – ebook

1 in nonfiction:

  1. Le Regard du Ressuscité, by Archimandrite Gabriel


My favorite in October
