Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 1902 comments The Scoop:


✓ Number of days/hours spent reading = 33 (goal of 24)
✓ Number and/or list of books read = 5
✓ Number of pages read = 1,871

Echoes of Betrayal (Paladin's Legacy, #3) by Elizabeth Moon Magic Burns (Kate Daniels, #2) by Ilona Andrews Daggerspell (Deverry, #1) by Katharine Kerr Hyperion (Hyperion Cantos, #1) by Dan Simmons Darkspell (Deverry, #2) by Katharine Kerr

It wasn't a chore to complete; I didn't do very good about remembering to track my start time with a book (or to post/total all of them here until today to catchup). Next time, I think I'll do better to track manually on paper then post here on goodreads later.

Not my first RAT, not really different, and I didn't plan books in advance beyond knowing I was doing Bookshelf BINGO so would be using those books to serve double duty. Would do another; challenges like the Readathon and BINGO get me to read those books/authors been planning on for a long time and to clean up the TBR slightly.

Dan Simmons and Katharine Kerr were both new authors for me. I read alone, all ebooks on nook or via overdrive library loan.
