Bout of Books 12 Day 6

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

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.


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

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



  1. Wow! You've made some great progress! It's amazing that you've read 8 books so far! Kudos!
