Wow, a month where I read more books than you! (6) :D

My reading rate has been vastly improved by the new glasses - I'd not realised how much I'd slowed down until I started the first book post-vf. 2 books, slowly, in the first half of the month, 4 in the second.

wow, I think I might have matched you in November, which has possibly never happened in the decade I've known you. ;)
