Bout of Books 22:

Final recap

Another happy Bout of Books!
I reached my goal of 700, that is, an average of 100 pages/day.
In fact, I reached 783 pages, which is 111 pages per day (last time, I did 139).
I finished 2 books, and read 53% of a third.
I can tell you the upcoming books
by Catherine Steadman, Something in the Water,
and The Word is Murder, by Anthony Horowitz, are fantastic! 

See you maybe for next Bout of Books, 8/20/2018 – 8/26/2018.
