I started the book before the RAT so I'm not sure where I was or how much I read.

BUT...I'm done! :o)

Hope everyone had a fun and productive reading weekend! I finally finished "Stiletto" YEAH ME! I started it back at the first of the year and it was a huge book for me (580pages) and it was a big hardback so I could not carry it around with me everywhere like the Kindle or a paperback so I did not get through it as fast as I usually would. :)

142 pages sounds like pretty good progress to me!!!! It's better than not reading at all!
