Readathon Wrap-Up: Day Five, Six and Seven

I apologise that I did not update my reading total each day as I said I would, but I thought that gathering the totals for the last three days of the readathon would suffice.

Day four is by far the best readathon total I expect to get to this week, and it was reached mainly by catching up on a stack of review books.

Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou – 30pp (read for review)

Total pages: 474
Daily target of 100 pages beaten by 374 pages
