Even though I didn’t stick to my reading plans for December, and end up with a list very different from the books I had planned to read, I have read a lot, according to my own standards!
Here is what I read in December:
= 9 books, with 2,649 pages, that is: 85.4 pages/day.
+ 2 audiobooks, with 16:06 hours, that is: 31 min/day
