Total pages read this week: 507

Total # of books for the year: 9 of 85.  I FINALLY finished Anna Karenina!  I was also determined to finish The Mermaid’s Sister before starting A Curious Beginning.  I knew if I didn’t, I would probably never start A Curious Beginning before it was due back at the library.  I placed it on hold a month or so ago, and I got the email on Saturday that it was available for download.  The only problem is that I only get it for 21 days and there are 3 others waiting for it behind me, so I won’t be able to renew it, if need be, for quite a while.  I’m really not sure why ebooks follow the same rules as physical books, but that’s how it is, so I must read it while I have the chance.
