My goal for this year will be three a month. Only 10% of slayground‘s average, but she makes reading books her business.
To catch up to this goal, because I do believe Nothing But the Truth is the first book I’ve finished this year, I will need to have read 9 books by the end of March. I did one today.

That leaves 28 days.

A book every 3 days, and I’m all caught up.
