I am going to shoot for 15,000 for the year now!!!!

message 38: by Colleen (new)

Colleen Turner (candc320) Just finished The Princess of Nowhere...a novel about Napolean's sister, Pauline Borghese. Very good! It was 308 pages. My yearly total of finished novels comes to 14,609 pages. Not quite 15,000 (and I have read some of another novel I haven't quite finished yet, but I don't want to count that) but I am still happy with the total! Can't wait until next year's challenge!
