#BoutofBooks11 Day 7

  Day 7 was rather a bust, but I suppose little is better than none. So here’s my tally: 73 pages read of Idols by Margaret Stohl 2 pages read of The Iron Trial I also  wrote a couple of blog posts. I can’t believe this challenge is over, but I had fun, no matter that I only finished 1 book. 🙂 I look forward to the next Bout of Books read-a-thon.  Until next time.  -Kat Please follow and like us:0
