Christina Rochester (christinarochester) Here's the June WCRTM challenge. As usual the aim is to see who can read the most books over the course of the month.

The points system will work as follows:
150-249 pages - 1 point
250-349 pages - 2 points
350-449 pages - 3 points
450+ pages - 4 points
All pages are done based off the Goodreads Paperback pages.

Bonus points can also be earned.
2 points for including a link to your review (at least two paragraphs long)
1 point if the book is a standalone
1 point per book in series (if the entire series is read in June).
1 point per story in book if the book is an anthology of short stories.

Participants:
1. Christina - 29 points
2. Amy Leigh - 21 points
3. Sandra
4. Ashy Khaira - 200 points
5. Andrea - 239 points

Why would her boyfriend come along? It's not like he can visit the nicu, is it? I know here, it's nobody but immediate family members.


message 20: by Christina (new)

Christina Rochester (christinarochester) They let him in, they’ll allow any visitors at this hospital so long as a parent is by the incubator.

Amy Leigh (xxamyleighxx) | 138 comments Ugh! I'm sick with an upper respiratory infection and I've had a migraine the past couple days and I got stuck where I couldn't read. It sucked so bad!! My head is better now but I quit taking the cold medicine. I'm pretty sure that was causing the migraine. 😣
