February Points = 90
There was another animal book that I was going to try, but I never got around to it. I'm just shocked by how many of these are print copies! (9!!) Maybe my curse is broken. Maybe.
And since it just hurts the heart to count such huge books (which I wasn't able to get around to throughout all of last year) for a mere 5 points, I have set a new goal for myself. I have a goal to read 25, 000 pages this year.
By month, I'm counting pages of books finished in that month. SO, the goal won't be wholly accurate, since 400 of the 1,000ish pages of Little Dorrit were read last year. But if the majority is this year, I'll count it.
-In January, I read 1,820 pages
-In February, I read 5,345 pages (funny, considering it is the shortest month)
