January 2021 WRAP-UP
I can’t believe it’s already time for the first wrap up of the year!
End of January and beginning of February usually mean more snow in Chicagoland, and this is definitely happening, with 8 inches in 24 hours at my place.
So let’s go back under the covers and read!
I have been starting slow as for number of pages, but I am happy with these stats, and also with the fact that I have almost reviewed all the titles I meant to review. Doing short reviews for the Sunday Post has been helping a lot.
📚 So here is what I read in January:
8 in print
= with 1,728 pages, a daily average of 55 pages/day
5 in audio
= 26H22, a daily average of 51 minutes
