Once again, I hope everyone had an ahmazing reading week! All participants of either readathon post here your summaries in this topic.

Just give us a brief summary of how your reading went for the day/week. Here's an optional format to post your summary in:

~Books you Read From
~Books You Finished
~Total Reading Time (optional)
~Total Pages/Percent Read (optional) {For audiobooks, this could be the total chapters listened to.}

You can do basically the same setup for Audiobooks if you listened to some of those.


Please only post one time and update your posts. Thanks! (If you want to have a post with your Day-long summary and then another with your Week-long summary, that's fine.)
