Most Awesome Mods, I can't find a page count here or on Amazon. Based on the "location" amounts on my kindle, I would guess about 225. It is definitely not more than 300. I'll take whatever you think is fair.

You will get page points for this book. Because you didn't read all of it in September it does not count towards a category.
