Also, for this one, should we confine all comments to a single post, or keep adding anew so the times (etc.) are recorded?

start: 138
so far: 200 (12:30 am - 1:30 am)

message 50: by Megan ♡ (last edited Apr 13, 2018 04:30AM) (new)

Megan ♡ (shelley101) Think I'm going to give this a go :) I've never done anything like this before and seeing as I have no plans tomorrow, I don't see why not.

Books Read:
Gone Girl - 382 pages
Trump’s Christmas Carol - 112 pages

Total Pages Read: 494

Books Finished:
Trump’s Christmas Carol by Lucien Young

All in all, an okay day in terms of reading. I didn't read as much as I hoped but I ended up having a few admin things to get done and I also had to pack because I'm going back to uni after the Easter holidays tomorrow.
