2020: February wrap-up

FEBRUARY 2020 WRAP-UP

ūüďö Well, my January trend is still at work!
I have again read a lot this month, in fact even more than in January. But the real feat is that so far, I have reviewed everything as well, mostly thanks to my Sunday Post, where I post short reviews as needed.
My daily Book Journal is helping me too, I believe.
And I have restarted posting more often on Myrtle Skete, my Orthodox blog.

ūüďö Like in January, besides The Classics Club, I have been doing the Japanese Literature Challenge (until March), I joined the #Pondathon (a reading competition: I earn points for my¬†#Xiaolong team based on the number of pages I read and the number of books I finish), and the Murakami online Book Club.

So here are the titles I read in February:

13 books:
9 in print 
=  with 2,275 pages, an average of 78 pages/day
4 in audio
= 23H10
, an average of 47 minutes
