The Final Tally
So my daughter diligently kept a reading log throughout the summer, in order to be inducted into her school's Reading Hall of Fame. While I am opposed to reading logs, this one was merely a list of every book she read - she didn't have to count pages or minutes - and it is kind of nice to see what books she read this summer. I have been keeping a similar list for myself using the NYPL's "completed" shelf feature. In any case, the final tally, after 75 days of vacation is..............(drum roll)............. 85 books! They vary widely in terms of length and difficulty but still, what a difference a year makes! I'm kvelling.
