Total pages read for the week: 474
Total number of books for the year: 18. I’m behind on my review books again, mostly due to school. I had an exam and one of my two 20 page research papers to finish. I’m also still looking for a part-time job, but I took a much needed break to relax. The strange part is that my relaxation included catching up on emails, chores, and errands, in addition to reading. After finishing The Prince of Hazel and Oak, I started another podiobook on my way to school, but it was horrible. The narrator sounded like he was reading an instructional manual and his character voices sounded like amateur Renaissance fair actors. It was so bad that I’m not even going to mention the title, because the book might be decent enough to read for some. I just couldn’t handle the podiobook version. I asked the world of Twitter for suggestions, but while I waited, and since I already had Ender’s Game on my phone, I decided to listen to it instead of continuing to suffer. I also have a physical copy of the book, so I’m going to try alternating back and forth between listening and reading.
