Here is what I read on DAY 3:

  1. L’énigme de la chambre 622, by Joël Dicker = 5 pages
  2. Audiobook: Pandemia, by Franck Thilliez = 38 pages

Total for Day 3:  43 pages
TOTAL so far:  346/525

A pathetic 43 pages, as I had something else going on yesterday night, the only time I can really read.

📚 For the 9:30 p.m. Central reading-in-place: I couldn’t participate

I did the Instagram challenge, featuring a recent 5 star read

  4. Audiobook: Pandemia, by Franck Thilliez = 4 pages

Total for Day 2:  99 pages

I caught up with the pages I needed to read for my read along with a student on Le Livre de Perle, so I started reading L’énigme de la chambre 622, for a French read-along on Discord – we read and comment in French. Let me know if you are interested.

📚 For the 9:30 p.m. Central reading-in-place, I read 30 pages.

I also did the Instagram challenge, featuring a beautiful book cover.

  2. Audiobook: The Big Four, by Agatha Christie = 141 pages

Total for Day 1:  204 pages

I had a lot of house chores to do today: wash, gardening, cooking, dishes, so ended up with almost 3 hours of audiobook listening!

📚 For the 9:30 p.m. Central reading-in-place, I read 27 pages.
Not many, because I take notes to help for reviews.
I didn’t participate in the Twitter Chat, but I already met interesting readers through the #boutofbooks hashtag

I also did the Instagram challenge

📚📚📚
