Revisiting what I posted 10 years ago
(my blog was born on September 29, 2010)
following the idea I found at The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog
(click on this link or the logo to see where the idea started from,

Not sure what happened, looks like I completely forgot to post for this meme since March!
So today, I’ll be revisiting March 2012.
I published 13 posts, 10 of these were reviews.

Of these books, here is the one that received most views:

2022: February wrap-up

FEBRUARY 2022 WRAP-UP

With the world events, I debated sharing about the books I have read.
Praying is definitely more important than reading at this point, but I guess some of you may experience comfort in the usual routine, so here we go.

February had only 28 days, so it seemed I read less. In fact, my average page per day was higher than in January, and I also had more listening time for audiobooks.

So far, I have managed to review everything.

📚 Here is what I read in February:

12 books:
9 in print 
with 2,082 pages, a daily average of 74 pages/day
3 in audio
= 40H05
, a daily average of 1H25

  2. Gataca [Bred to Kill], by Franck Thilliez – French audio

  4. Maigret chez les Flamands (Maigret #15), by Georges Simenon – read with a French student
