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:
3 in print
= with 1,112 pages, that is: 35 pages/day
+ 2 audiobooks
= with 20H20, that is: 39 mn/day.
3 in mystery:
- Moriarty, by Anthony Horowitz – audiobook
- The Resistance Man, by Martin Walker – audiobook
- Concerto pour quatre mains, by Paul Colize
1 in science-fiction:
- Artemis, by Andy Weir – ebook
1 in nonfiction:
- Le Regard du Ressuscité, by Archimandrite Gabriel

Blog recap in October
As part of my vacation, I went to Three Pines/Knowlton, in Quebec. It was so neat, we decided to stay and spend a night there. I hope to have soon some time to tell you all about it, with pictures!
I organized 2 giveaways. The one for November at France Book Tours is now available.
