Bout of Books 12 Day 6

 http://boutofbooks.blogspot.com/2015/01/bout-of-books-12-day-6.html

Day 6 of Bout of Books 12 and rather than slowing down on my reading, as I thought yesterday, I had a sleepless night so decided to read

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/666427579

No pun intended! I finished it about 5am and picked up The Lottery and Other Stories to read (part of my Shirley Jackson reread this year). I might put that to one side though as I want to take my time and pick up either the Jodi Picoult or Elly Griffiths books I have from the library which need to go back next week.

Progress

Number of pages I've read today: 400
Total number of pages read: 2207
Number of books read today: 1
Total number of books I've read: 8

Challenges

Literary Quote Challenge hosted by Gone with the Words

I love this opening paragraph of The Lottery because it makes everything seem so innocuous and nobody has any idea of what's about to happen
