June 2012 Reading Wrap-Up

I have to say, I thought I would read more in June than I did, since I only worked half of the month. However, getting the house and blog ready for the girls, getting ahead on freelance writing, and, well, Audiobook Week, which was amazingly fun, but also very time consuming. Somehow I actually finished MORE books before I stopped working than after. In total this month I finished 20 books, the first book I finished this month brought me to 100 for the year. Of these 20, 14 were print or ebooks for a total of about 4500 pages. The other 6 were audiobooks, for a total of over 61 hours listened.
